The 2018 OASFAA Annual Conference Committee is pleased to announce its 2018 conference charity, Maslow Project!

Maslow was founded in 2006 (and officially became a non-profit in 2009) to provide “goal-oriented, wrap around support services” to homeless children and their families in Jackson and Josephine counties. Southern Oregon has one of the highest populations of homeless youth in Oregon, and Maslow provides advocacy, outreach, and services to these students “with a goal of bringing enough stability into their lives so that kids are able to stay in school and complete their education.”

Our means for raising money for this vital organization will be with a Penny War! The idea is simple: each penny in your jar equals one point. The jar with the most points at the end wins. But to make things a little more interesting you have the ability to sabotage other jars by dropping silver coins! A nickel takes away five points, a dime, ten points, and a quarter knocks off 25 points! For those of you who have been holding on to your dollar coins for something special, now is the time to put them to use!


This year, rather than competing as individual institutions, we are going to join forces with our segments and combine fundraising efforts with the goal of becoming the Charity Champ! We encourage each institution and to work individually over the next couple of months to collect as much change as possible (don’t forget, bills work too -- one dollar deducts 100 points!) and then bring it to Salishan in January!

The second way your sector can gain points is by bringing donation items with you to the conference. Maslow is in need of the items listed in the box below. One donated item equals one point toward the Charity Championship!

Questions about the charity? Contact conference committee members Debbie O'Dea or Karinda Farley for more information.
