    Funding OCS

    OCS relies entirely on donations and grants to meet its budget. Through your job, church, club, school, civic group, or on-line donation, you can help. Contributions are needed, and donations are tax deductible. A dollar in donations can provide six meals out of our pantry, and generous contributions keep emergency assistance programs available to those in need.

    • Donate Electronically

      To donate electronically, just click the PayPal link. You will be taken to a secure website where you can enter your credit card information. Thank you!

    • The Old-Fashioned Way

      Donations can also be dropped off at or mailed to our office at 285 South Professor St., Oberlin, OH 44074. Please make checks out to Oberlin Community Services.

      All gifts to OCS are tax deductible as allowed by federal and state law.

    Investment giving

    OCS also encourages gifts of stocks and mutual funds. This kind of gift allows the donor to receive a charitable deduction for the full, fair-market value of the gift without being subject to a capital gains tax on the appreciation.

    OCS Sustainers

    The OCS Sustainers Initiative was established in 2009 to promote the organization’s financial stability and enhance its planning process. Sustainers pledge to donate at least $100 annually for at least two consecutive years.
