Matching grant opportunity!
June 27, 2014
A very generous OFIR member has once again offered a matching grant to help raise the funds needed for the Protect Oregon Driver Licenses referendum election campaign.
We face a very well funded and highly motivated opposition and five months of intensive campaigning. We need your help now to ensure our success in the November general election.
A contribution of any size would be greatly appreciated. Our donor will match your contribution - dollar for dollar - up to a $5,000 total. For example, if you contribute $25 - our donor will match that with $25, too - doubling your contribution!
Folks - it doesn't get much better than this! Please take advantage of this very generous offer and give as much as you can, but no more than you can afford.
Your contribution will help with the myriad of expenses involved in operating a winning campaign specifically designed to educate the public about the dangers of granting state issued ID - in the form of special driver licenses - to those who can't even prove they are legally present in the United States.
For example: One critical component in educating the public about the dangers associated with issuing these special driver licenses is through statements submitted to the Secretary of States office by our supporters and endorsers and printed in the voters pamphlet. Just one statement for the Voters Pamphlet costs $1,200. Other costs include yard and field signs, radio ads, literature and much more.
We run a very tight ship and every single penny is stretched to the limit - but, there are expenses that just can't be avoided and that's why we need your help today, so we will be successful in November!
There are several ways you can help the PODL campaign:
You can choose to contribute online with a credit card or through PayPal.
If you would like to make a contribution each month throughout the campaign, that option is now available on our website at the link above. For example - I would like to send you $500 for the campaign, but I can't afford to right now, but I could afford to send you $100 a month for the 5 months of the campaign! Or, you could make an ongoing monthly contribution just as easily.
Don't let this opportunity to double your contribution slip away - contribute today! Remember to Vote NO in NOvember!
If you are unable to contribute financially at this time - that's ok! We need help in many, many ways. Go to our website and click on How You Can Help Choose something that is of interest to you and let us know. It will take all kinds of volunteers and all of us working together to be successful in November.

Thank you very much! Now - let's go win this!
