we are all bigger than ourselves. be a part of the change.

OPEN and OPEN Foundation is entirely run by volunteers. From the Board of Directors to the event coordinators/committee and everything in between, every member of our team is a volunteer. We take pride in being an all-volunteer organization, as it allows us to put all of our resources towards our mission and goals.

However, being an all-volunteer organization also means that we rely heavily on our community for support. Without the help of our community members, we would not be able to accomplish all that we do. We are incredibly grateful for the support we have received thus far, but we still need your help to continue making a positive impact.

There are many ways that you can support our organization. If you have any spare time, consider volunteering with us. We are always in need of extra hands to help with events, fundraisers, and other initiatives. If you are unable to volunteer, consider making a donation to our organization. Every little bit helps us continue our work.

We believe that OPEN is making a positive impact on our community, and we want to continue to do so. But we cannot do it without your support. Please consider helping us in any way that you can.

Thank you for your continued support, and we look forward to working with you to make a difference in our community.
