While we receive most of our funding from various federal, state, and county grant programs, we must competitively apply for these funds. These grant programs all come with their own strict requirements, and the amount of funding available changes with the political and budgetary winds.
Private donations can fill gaps and give us the flexibility to help folks who don’t fit neatly into any of the grant programs’ eligibility requirements. When you give to ORHA, you invest in your neighbors.
Your gift directly support our efforts to help Otsego County residents afford a safe, decent place to live. Whether we’re helping a family afford rent or installing an accessible shower for a senior citizen, ORHA’s work makes a big, tangible difference in people’s lives.
You can make a one-time donation or set up a monthly donation to ORHA with PayPal.
If you’re more comfortable with check or cash, you can mail your donation to the following address:
Otsego Rural Housing Assistance, Inc.
P.O. Box 189
Milford, NY 13807
If you would like your donation to be in honor of someone, please include a letter letting us know.

Some workplaces will “match” your donation to a non-profit by making the same donation to the same organization. It’s one way you can make a bigger impact with no extra cost to you. Talk to your employer to find out if they have a matching gift program and how you can sign up.
If you have skills or resources relevant to our mission, we welcome the opportunity to speak with you about how you can help ORHA. Gifts helpful to ORHA might include marketing services, good-quality modular ramps, or office supplies and equipment.
