Letter from George Ong, president OCA National,
thanking Columbus chapter for our donation.
25 March 2002
Theresa W. Lee
On behalf of the Organization of Chinese Americans, I wish to thank
you and your chapter for your very generous donation of $2500.00 " as
unrestricted funds for the advancement of the mission of OCA."
Reading your letter, I could not help but be deeply moved by your
expression of concern for OCA National's financial plight and the
overwhelming support your chapter ultimately demonstrated to help
ease our financial hardship.
I completely share your sentiment and hope that other chapters will
also follow suit and show their support as well. OCA National's well
being is largely dependent upon our members and other supporters who
believe in our mission and goals, and any nonprofit organization must
depend upon funding above and beyond membership dues.
Please do convey my heartfelt gratitude to your chapter members for
their kind generosity and best wishes. In particular, your
declaration of support for the Executive Council and national office
staff is greatly appreciated.
George M. Ong
National President (1999-2002)
