A New Way to Support the Communities Where We Live and Serve
The OTEC Member Foundation is a 501(c)(3) non-profit foundation that oversees OTEC’s existing charitable programs supporting its members, families and communities in Baker, Grant, Harney and Union counties.
One of the charitable programs you can sign up for is OTEC's Member-to-Member Round Up Program! Click here to learn more.
Another wonderful program is Dolly Parton's Imagination Library! Click here for more information on how the program works and how you can sign up your child to start receiving free books in the mail each month!
You can help sponsor a child and help spread the gift of reading! For just a $25 tax-deductible donation per year, you can sponsor a child to also begin receiving a free book each month! Interested? Call OTEC at 541-524-2847 or email email@example.com.
Members who would like to support the Foundation can also donate to the general fund to support various community organizations, or they can donate to the scholarship funds to help support local youth's education.
Members also have an option of establishing a personal Memorial Scholarship through the Foundation. Those interested in establishing a Memorial Scholarship are asked to email firstname.lastname@example.org for further information.
