Optimist International Foundation

Have You Made Your Dime A Day donation yet?
A once a year, Dime A Day donation of $36.50 helps support the Optimist International Foundation. 

The OIF funds the Essay, Oratorical and Deaf and Hard of Hearing Scholarships, as well as the Club Grants.

Just think, if each one of our 753 members in the Arizona District donated just $36.50 this year, our District would support the Foundation in the amount of $27,484.50.  Amazing!

For the price of about 5 cups of coffee, your support can have a major impact.
