Creation of this Ocean Community One Fund website and other business / community support services at this critical time requires an investment that was not budgeted by our non-profit organization. 100% of all donations are tax-deductible and any donation is greatly appreciated. If you would like to make a general donation that our Covid-19 Committee can use for whatever purpose it deems affective in helping with these efforts, please do so by clicking the nearby "donate" button. You will have an opportunity to select our general fund, or a specific organization that you would like to support. We use PayPal to process our donations, but having a PayPal account to make a donation is not required. You can use any major credit card.
Sponsor a Chamber Of Commerce Membership
If your business is doing well and you want to help one that is struggling right now, please consider "paying it forward" by sponsoring a 1-year Chamber membership renewal for another business. Without question, small businesses will need The Chamber's marketing, gift certificate program, and impactful support programs more than ever, once they re-open. However, these same small businesses will be extremely limited with their marketing funds. You can "adopt" a business, and sponsor their Chamber dues for a year. You can either pick a specific business that you wish to assist, and discuss their dues investment with our Chamber staff, or you can contribute $225 which will underwrite the dues for a company with under 5 full time employees that qualifies for membership assistance. Your generous gift will provide tangible support for an entire year during the crucial recovery period. We welcome donations by residents who care deeply about local small businesses and may want to provide membership assistance. Please call The Ocean Community Chamber of Commerce at (401) 596-7761 if you are interested in making a donation of this nature, or you the "donate" button nearby, select the "general support" option, and then add a note (when prompted) that you would like to provide Chamber membership assistance.
Scholarship Donation - Each year the Ocean Community Chamber Foundation awards over $8,000 in youth scholarships. Students at Westerly High School, Stonington High School and Prout School qualify for consideration. As a result of the Covid-19 crisis, families in our community will need more assistance than ever before. If you would like to make a donation that would be used for our youth scholarship program, please click on the nearby "donate" button. Please select our scholarship fund from the pull-down option. We use PayPal to process our donations, but having a PayPal account to make a donation is not required. You can use any major credit card.
