OGC School Foundation Fundraiser

Hosted by Fundraising Brick

Engraved Brick Order Deadline: September 15, 2024

For additional information about our engraved brick campaign, please contact Chris Heid at Chris.heid@att.net or call 407-234-7399.

The Oak Grove Chapel is a beautiful historic building. It is the only building left of the Oak Grove-Coburn campus owned by the Oak Grove School Foundation. The Chapel has sat empty and largely unused for decades. To bring it back to life for weddings, concerts, art exhibits, reunions, and other events, it needs the basic infrastructure of bathrooms, a kitchen and handicapped accessibility.

In order to maintain the Chapel’s historic integrity – and save money – a caretaker’s cottage is being built nearby. This multi-use building will have accessible bathrooms, a kitchenette, a gathering space and a small apartment for a chapel property manager/event coordinator.

Following a generous $320,000 donation by an OGC community member, construction began in October 2023. Due to unforeseen expenses, the cost to complete the Cottage and restore the Chapel exceeds our estimates.

This fundraiser is needed to ensure completion of the construction of the cottage by October 2024. We need approximately $125,000 to complete the work.

We hope you will help complete this exciting project by making a tax­-deductible donation for an engraved brick today. The engraved bricks will be placed in a path leading from the chapel to the caretaker’s cottage. This is your opportunity to honor an OGC graduating class, teacher, classmate, school team, or event associated with the school. You can, of course, also buy a brick inscribed with your name (and class year) to signify that you were part of the OGC community. The fundraiser is just $125 per brick and there is no limit in the number of bricks you can purchase.

Please note that all messages on the bricks must commemorate or honor members of the Oak Grove School / OGC community or Oak Grove Chapel in some way. Please no bricks with commercial or political messages. OGSF reserves the exclusive right to decide which messages are consistent with the purpose of this project.

The bricks may be used in a variety of landscaping options for the area – pathway, garden wall, etc.

To begin, complete the required fields on the form indicated by the asterisk (*). Then enter your inscription and click the “next” button at the bottom. You will be directed to the confirmation page to confirm your message. After confirming your inscription, click the “submit form” button at the bottom right of the page.

Please enter the text exactly as you want it to appear on the brick. You don’t need to center the text as you enter it; the laser software will automatically center the inscription on the brick. If you would like to order more than one brick, please indicate so on the order form and make ONE order with multiple bricks, inscribing each one separately, as we pay a small fee for each individual order. Also please consider an additional donation as part of your order.
