As part of its growing student outreach efforts, the OVMA recently created 5 for 5 for the Future, an initiative aimed at raising money for student scholarships and programs.

The OVMA estimates that this program will raise $17,500 in revenue each year, for a total nearing $90,000 over the five-year period.
