Winona ORC is grateful for every donation we receive, and we appreciate our donors as we work together to provide services for people with disabilities in our community, including vocational counseling, comprehensive job-related skill training and meaningful employment.
Winona ORC sees value not just in the donation itself, but also the relationship that we build with you over time! For that reason, when you give, you will also receive!
How do you become a GEM? It is quite simple! When donating online, check the “make this a recurring donation” box; from there, you will select the date you would like your donation to be automatically processed each month. Every donation is precious to us, and by becoming a GEM, you allow Winona ORC to financially plan using your sustainable gift.
