OPPORTUNITY CENTER FOUNDATION
The Opportunity Center Foundation is a group of concerned business and professional people for the purpose of receiving funds through gifts, bequests, memorials, endowments, and properties. All contributions to the Foundation become a permanent and perpetual fund with only earnings and interest from the prime fund being expended. The Foundation Board of Directors meets once a year and earnings from the Foundation are paid annually to the Center to operate programs.
All three Boards work together to continue progress toward improvement and expansion of services for persons with disabilities.
Each group is a duly incorporated, 501(c)3 non-profit organization that is responsible for fundraising activities to achieve current
and long-range goals for housing, training and future growth of the Center.
