Dear OVOC Membership,

This year we are excited to announce that OVOC is participating in the GiveNCW fundraising campaign! We hope to put all the generously donated funds toward our many avenues of outreach including the Building Fund, Scholarship Fund, and Music Fund. The GiveNCW fundraiser will run through December 31st and offers several options for those who would like to give, such as Monday Funday, Match Wednesday, and Like & Share Friday!

On Monday Funday, each time you donate on a Monday, your name is entered to win $1,000 to use on Give NCW any way you choose! Three names will be drawn each week..

On Match Wednesday, all donations from $10-$100 will be matched on Wednesdays, up to $3,000.

On Like & Share Friday, donate $10 or more, like and share our Friday Facebook post or like and comment on Instagram, and tag a Give NCW nonprofit and you'll have a chance to win $500 each to use on Give NCW any way you choose. Two names will be drawn each week. Like us on Facebook @cfncw and Follow us on Instagram @communityfoundationncw

To highlight the spirit of giving, we'd also like to mention that December 1st is Giving Tuesday, where people all over the world join together and give to others. OVOC is so appreciative of our members and community who spend their time and resources giving to others. Thank you to the many organizations in Okanogan County who give back--visit to see a list of local organizations.
