Give to OCS

We rely entirely on donations and grants to meet our budget. Through your employment, church, club, school, civic group or on-line donation, you can make a difference in your community. Contributions are needed, and donations are tax-deductible. Every dollar in donation will provide four meals from our pantry, and generous contributions keep emergency assistance programs available to those most in need. Your dollars matter.

Investment giving

OCS 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 helps promote our financial stability and enhance our planning process. Sustainers pledge to donate at least $100 annually for at least two consecutive years.
