Fundraising 2021


We would like to thank you for your continued and faithful support of our “Day Party with a Purpose” scholarship fundraiser, held annually during CIAA tournament week. Regretfully, because of the Covid-19 pandemic our 2021 fundraiser will not take place. For that reason, we are reaching out to you in a different manner this year.

Established in 1993, OCOF is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization committed to helping ease the financial challenges many of our youth encounter as they seek a college education to advance themselves and their respective communities. In past years, we have been able to give over $500,000 to our chosen Universities – 2021 cannot be any different. 


Our goal for 2021 is to raise $50,000 for scholarships. We would like to take this opportunity to appeal once again to your generosity. We ask that you consider making a donation by clicking here.


Together we can make a difference! In 2022 our “Day Party with a Purpose” will be back strong as ever in Baltimore MD. We thank you in advance for your continued generosity and support.
