The Oasis Center for Women & Girls is participating in the global #GivingTuesday initiative.
Black Friday. Cyber Monday. #GivingTuesday. After two days of deals, we hope that you will give to change the lives of women and girls in our community.
Help us reach our $2,000 #GivingTuesday goal!
All gifts received on November 29, 2016 will be matched dollar for dollar up to $1,000 thanks to an anonymous supporter who believes in the power of women and girls.
When you give to Oasis, you are helping to change lives and every dollar counts:
the cost of one end of group "personal reflection" gift including a
journal, pens, and personalized note for one local teen girl who completes the
Girls Circle program

time with an outstanding woman role model in the community as part of Girls Can
Do Anything! Summer Camp
$35 funds one individual counseling session for one woman to meet
with a Licensed Clinical Social Worker to help her reach her goals
$50 buys one dinner for 15 mothers and children while they attend the
weekly Single Mother Support Group
$100 covers the cost of one special event for up to 20 Single Mother
Support Group participants for Mother's Day, winter holidays, or back to school
$150 provides one scholarship for one girl who would not otherwise be
able to attend Girls Can Do Anything! Summer Camp
$500 supplies the materials for up to 1,000 local elementary school
students to participate in the Trailblazers in Schools initiative, bringing
local Women's History to the classroom
