To provide individuals, groups, and organizations from Medicine Hat and the surrounding area with financial assistance for charitable events, initiatives and sponsorships.
To help as many people, groups, and organizations achieve as many of their objectives and goals as possible.
OSA's mandate is to provide a means for individuals, groups and organizations from Medicine Hat and the surrounding area to apply for funds that may be required to assist in the execution of various charitable events, initiatives, and sponsorships. We have nothing against national charities, however our focus is localized. We will only consider national charity efforts as long as 100% of the funds are directed to the local charity. OSA is designed as a grass roots program and it's purpose is for 100% of the funds to benefit the end user in Medicine Hat and the surrounding area. For these reasons consideration will not be given to requests from organizations that have high administration costs and funnel only a small percentage to the end user.
