eBay Donations Appreciated:

The Orchestra of Southern Utah (OSU) is excited to announce a new way that you can support the music in Southern Utah:  through selling on eBay.  eBay Giving Works makes it possible for sellers to donate a portion, or all, of their profit from eBay sales to OSU.  This process is simple for sellers to complete and eBay rewards sellers for their generosity with special eBay Giving Works features that help gain more bids and higher selling prices.  OSU will also benefit because they will receive not only the proceeds from the seller’s successes, but recognition in the listing.  At the end of the selling process, eBay Giving Works will provide a tax receipt to the seller on behalf of OSU.  In addition to using eBay for donations through profits, any eBay member with a PayPal account can give an online cash donation of as little as $1 to OSU through the eBay Giving Works Donate Now program (a receipt for any donations will be emailed to the donor). 

 eBay users are invited to donate to OSU through
