OBI Matches Donations:
New “Match” Program means your Donation Doubles
In the spirit of the holiday season, there is now no better reason to consider a gift to Ontario Bays Initiative, Inc.
Longtime OBI supporters T. Urling and Mabel Walker are generously sponsoring a “matching” program for our non-profit land trust. This means that a donation to OBI of $100 becomes $200. A donation of $500 becomes $1000. You get the idea! Consider becoming a “Friend of OBI” for the first time or increase your level of membership.
Our goal is $10,000 in “matching” funds. Can we do it? We can with your help! Read more...
