BEFORE YOU START
1. Copy art for your page. Open this link and save the image to your desktop.
2. Copy the following information. You can replace or edit once you paste into Facebook, but this could be a good starting point for you and “why you are setting up a fundraiser” for OCA:
Ozark Catholic Academy’s 2021 Griffin Fund is the school’s annual campaign to help bridge the gap between tuition dollars and operating expenses. OCA opened its doors in the Fall, 2018 as NWA’s first Catholic high school. This year’s Griffin Fund goal is $300,000 and will ensure the school’s continued growth and future success. Please help me support OCA, every single dollar donated helps reach their goal…and no donation is too small. Thanks for your support!
