Remembering Ocean Park in a Tangible Way
"We make a living by what we get, we make a life by what we give." --Winston Churchill.
Every summer, the programs and places within this extraordinary community make Ocean Park more than just a day at the beach. Your gift to the Ocean Park Association Annual Fund will help secure this special place for tomorrow.
You can also give on-line through Network for Good. Network for Good charges the Association a tax deductible 5% processing fee based on your donation amount, so that 95% of the donation amount comes to OPA. At the time of your donation, Network for Good also gives you the option to add the fee to your donation, so that 100% of your donation goes to the Association.

You claim a special place in the heartbeat of the Association through your membership: Individual memberships are $125/year; Youth memberships (through age 21) are $15/year; and Life memberships are available for $1,500. Come, be a member, let your voice be heard, and add your time and talent to those who make OPA a wonderful place. Membership appplication can be found here.
In 2014, 22% of our total unrestricted income came from the generous donations to this fund. Along with Individual, Life, and Youth memberships, this Fund supports the day-to-day operations of the Association.
Celebrating the accomplishments and memories of our loved ones can now be made through purchasing a personalized and commemorative granite paver. These pavers will be installed in the walkway outside the Memorial Library in Demerritt Square and will be a permanent tribute to those individuals who share a love of Ocean Park. By adding your name, or that of a loved one, to a paver, you will be joining countless other Ocean Park friends – to pave the foundation for a promising future for this place we love. Use this Link to the Paver Order Form to place your order.
Many times when a beloved OPA family member passes away, opportunities are given to offer a gift of money in memory of the person whose life will never be forgotten. These unrestricted gifts gives much needed help in our efforts to offer programming that make a difference.
Sunday Plate Collection
Each Sunday during the programming season, we are pleased to invite and host guest preachers known for their ability to communicate the message of the Gospel to help us on our Christian pilgrimage through life. Generous donations to the Sunday Plate Collection give us the ability to reach out and support the honoraria and traveling expenses of these great women and men.
Attend One of Our Many Programs and Donate at the Door
During the programming season, there are literally dozens of informative, entertaining, and healthy events open to members, visitors, and the general public. We are an open community and your donations helps us defray their costs is another way you can help support the OPA.
