ALL TYPES OF SUPPORT
Downtown Oshawa defines the starting point of the City we love today. With a rapidly growing and diverse mix of businesses, learning centres, entertainment venues and ethnicities, downtown Oshawa is poised for significant positive change while remembering the past. We need you to be part of our exciting renewal story!
HERE ARE SOME WAYS YOU CAN SUPPORT
WE LIKE YOUR ENERGY! WANNA HELP US?
It takes a village as they say. Some of you have already been selflessly and tirelessly volunteering to help make change happen in downtown Oshawa, and we love you for that. Thank you! We’re changing the platform for volunteerism downtown, starting with DOBA being much more specific about who we need and what we need your help with. In return, we want to ensure you are supported and recognized for the amazingness you do. Our new downtown volunteering platform will be defined better over time, but for now, simply letting us know you want to help is enough. Click the button below to be taken to our no-obligation volunteer form. Fill it out and we’ll take care of the rest!
A LITTLE MORE ABOUT THE VOLUNTEERS DOWNTOWN BUSINESSES ARE LOOKING FOR
You are photographers, videographers, graphic and interior designers, artists and visionaries. You’re best at coming up with ideas, content and showing the world in a different way.
You love downtown and you know it well... the businesses, the entertainment options, the people. We need you to share your love and enthusiasm with everyone and anyone!
Our creative crew and stakeholders are creating some cool events, they’re doing what they do best! We need you to help make their vision become a well produced reality.
Creating a safe, clean and beautiful downtown space is important to everyone. From beautification to clean-up, we need your insatiable desire for a clean world.
EVERY SINGLE DOLLAR HELPS!
OK, let’s address the elephant in the room head on! If you don’t have a business downtown or make downtown part of your shopping, dining or entertainment choices, donating to downtown efforts probably seems, well, like something your taxpaying dollars should be dealing with, with no need for additional monetary support. We get it! The reality is, despite some assistance from the City of Oshawa, downtown businesses are pretty much on their own to make exciting things happen for our community. DOBA is a collaborative of volunteer downtown Oshawa stakeholders who are making positive change happen. We’ve been working diligently to find NEW ways to mobilize our supporters, advocate effectively on behalf of downtown businesses and partner with the incredible creative community of Oshawa to enable them to do what they do best... create awesomeness, but it still requires a budget.
We continue to work towards doing things different. From financial transparency, the ability to monetarily support the efforts of DOBA at any amount and frequency and inclusiveness in the decision making process with the ability to offer constructive opinion and support... DOBA is doing things different, and it’s already starting to manifest results. Stay tuned as we reveal more and more insights into donations received, their effects and recognizing those who support because simply put... you are amazing people and how things are going to change!
