Give to OCS

We rely 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 greatly appreciated, and donations are tax-deductible. Every dollar in donation can provide four meals from our pantry, and generous contributions keep emergency assistance programs available to those most in need. All gifts to OCS are tax-deductible as allowed by federal and state law. OCS is a 501(c)3 tax-exempt organization. Your dollars matter. Click here to see how your donations make a difference.


Donations may be mailed or brought to our offices at 285 S. Professor St, Oberlin, OH 44074. Please make checks payable to Oberlin Community Services. Thank you!
