What is the IMPACT OBX fundraising campaign?
The Relief Foundation envisions a future where each individual can receive a higher allocation than today and where more people can be helped.
The first part of IMPACT OBX is a campaign to raise $1 million for funding the mission today. You can help us meet this goal. And your gift will be matched, dollar for dollar, thanks to the generosity of the Millis Family. Donate here. Your donation to IMPACT OBX will be used now to provide relief funding to Outer Bankers dealing with the emotional, physical and financial toll of crises.
The second part of IMPACT OBX is a campagin to raise $1.5 milion in legacy gifts to the Warren Cameron Judge, III Outer Banks Relief Foundation endowment fund at the Outer Banks Community Foundation so that the organization is backed by a healthy endowment to sustain it for generations to come. Donate here.
There is a limit to the impact the Relief Foundation can have if events are its only revenue stream. The foundation is turning to you, members of our community, to take it to the next level. This isn’t just about having fun for a cause (though of course we will still do that!). It goes much deeper — finding joy in the very act of giving. In knowing that your neighbor, your co-worker, your friend will have a sefety net if something bad happens. But this isn’t insurance — it’s assurance. Assurance that your community stands beside you in your darkest hour.
“What a wonderful thing the Outer Banks Relief Foundation is doing. I am dying and I know that, but I am going to die in peace knowing that stragers cared enough to make my last days easier.” – a woman from Nags Head
