The Annual Fund

The Annual Fund helps pay for fuel, insurance, maintenance, and need-based scholarships. You can help.

100% of your tax-deductable donation benefits the canoe trip. We have no paid staff or overhead expenses, as volunteers contribute their time and materials in order to make this trip happen—just as they have done for the past 30+ years. If this trip has touched your life or that of someone you know, please consider a voluntary contribution to our Annual Fund.

Checks payable to "South Church - OMC" may be sent to South Church, Attn: Kevin Corliss at 20 Church Street, Newport, NH 03773. Thanks for your support.

Also, please take note of these special fundraising events:
