Ways to give

Thank you for giving to Reach Out on Campus. There are a variety of ways that you might partner with the ministry here in Athens!

1. Pray. First, we need your prayer partnership.  Your prayers enable ROC's kingdom service on the OU campus and around the world.

2. Online Donation. Second, you may make an online donation to ROC through the Network for Good by clicking here.

3. Send Gifts Directly. You may send donations via the Post Office. Your gifts, made out to ROC or Reach Out on Campus, are tax deductible and will be receipted monthly. At the end of each year, you will receive an annual giving report for your tax purposes. Gifts may be sent to: ROC, P.O. Box 2613, Athens, OH 45701.

4. Shop on AmazonSmile. Amazon.com will donate 5% of the price of your eligible AmazonSmile purchases to Reach Out on Campus whenever you shop on AmazonSmile!   AmazonSmile is the same Amazon you know -- same products, same prices, same service.  Just click here to do your shopping and ROC will automatically receive a donation of 5% of your purchase price from Amazon.

5. Buy Coffee! Whether you drink coffee or just buy it for your friends, there is a way of supporting farmers, missions and ROC through purchasing coffee through More Than Coffee (to purchase coffee click here). If you select Reach Out on Campus when you check out, More Than Coffee will send ROC $2 for every bag you buy, it's that easy!  More Than Coffee is a DIRECT TRADE non-profit organization which means that they buy directly from the farmers producing the coffee around the world and all profits from the sales go to support missions.  You may find out more about More Than Coffee by clicking here.

6. Sign up at Kroger. A fourth opportunity, if you shop at Kroger, is through their Community Rewards Program. ROC is a part of the “Kroger Community Rewards Program” through which Kroger gives a percentage of a Kroger shopper’s purchase to a non-profit of the customer’s choice. To sign up for this program you may register online at http://www.krogercommunityrewards.com/.

Each Kroger shopper must register Reach Out on Campus as their organization of choice in order for ROC to receive donations through the rewards program for your purchases. This program does NOT cost you any money for participation and does not affect your Kroger Fuel Points. Kroger has provided us with the following step by step instructions to register Reach Out on Campus for the rewards program. Thanks so much for participating and helping support ROC’s ministry in this way!
