GiveOrcas Campaign


The GiveOrcas Campaign will be happening May 2-May 16, 2022. This year ORS/The Exchange is raising funds for equipment for the Baler Building! This equipment will allow us separate and compact recycled materials like aluminum, steel, cardboard and plastics into clean, uncontaminated bales. These bales will have much more value, are easier to ship, and will lower the cost of recycling, in both dollars and carbon, for all Orcas residents. There are two specific donation dates that we’d like you to consider:

May 4th is Ben Franklin Day and will be the best day to optimize a donation of $100 (or more). The organization with the most $100 donations on May 4th will receive a $1000 bonus from OICF!

May 10th is Unique Donor Day. A Unique Donor is defined as “one person who uses one credit card to donate one time to each nonprofit.” The organization that receives the most donations (big or small) on Unique Donor Day will receive a $1000 bonus from OICF!

We appreciate any donation – big or small – it all helps our goal towards Zero Waste!
