Giving

OPCA is a member supported non-profit, serving the OPCA membership. Because of the generosity of our members, we have been funded so far by annual voluntary donations from our member PRCs. We request each member PRC to support annually as led by your agency’s leadership. The annual support from our members runs from $50 to $2000 a year, and everything in between! We trust God to provide for our operations. We keep our expenses to a minimum, which include the annual Summit, and the Executive Director’s stipend. The current and annual financial statements are available on request.
