WHY DO WE NEED TO RAISE FUNDS?
ORYA is an independent 501 (c)3 non-profit and while partially funded by Durham, Lee and Madbury that funding still falls well short of covering annual operating expenses. Fundraising supports the annual operating expenses which include facility & field maintenance, program & organization insurance, office expenses, staff salaries, 3rd party accounting costs, website hosting, annual registration software, merchant account fees, and much more.
Fundraising also supports larger program and organization improvements. Through fundraising ORYA ensures the ability to make improvements where needed, such as:
- Building a concession stand at Demerritt Park in Madbury
- Expanding the soccer facility at Tibbetts field
- Building dugouts for our Baseball program
- Expanding irrigation at Little River Park in Lee
- Building a multi-use indoor space
- And so much more!
Initiatives Benefitting the ORYA Capital Fund and Programs
ORYA’s Capital Fund supports new initiatives, large scale programs, and/or facility
improvements. The Capital Fund is sustained by donations, grants, and program
registration fees. The Capital Fund ensures ORYA’s steady growth and, over time,
investment in larger projects.
All of ORYA’s programs benefit from the Capital Fund. Expenditures from ORYA’s
Capital Fund support the organization’s mission and be approved by the
Board of Directors. If you have any questions regarding ORYA’s Capital Fund
