Tribute Gifts

You can share your love for the Ojai Valley by making a donation as a tribute or gift in someone else's name. Simply select the "Tribute Gift" option with your payment. We will send a lovely card picturing the Ojai Valley in a photo by Cindy Pitou Burton to your honoree, acknowledging your tribute gift (but not the amount), and will add their name to our list of contributors (they can opt out of listing if desired). You will also receive a letter from the Ojai Valley Defense Fund thanking you for your tax-deductible gift.
