Contribution Fund
Contribution FundThe OABA Contribution Fund is designed to help raise funds to protect the future of your family business and preserve, promote and protect the mobile amusement industry.
THE OABA'S CONTRIBUTION FUND offers three different plans – Gold, Silver & Bronze – to meet your show's contribution to the OABA and in turn, rewards the show and concessionaires for these donations.


Fundraising for the OABA has always been based on the generosity of its members and depends on members to pay their fair share, the theory being that the organization belongs to the members who raise relevant issues and in the belief that they will also underwrite activities. Support and participation of enough members will provide the revenue necessary to continue and improve on membership services.


The funds collected for this program are earmarked for legal, legislative and lobbying issues. Also, funds are used to continually upgrade member services.


This OABA program advises member carnivals to collect funds from all office-owned and independent concessions and rides, side shows and arcades. When the show owner collects the money, they need to give or complete a receipt. The show or concessionaires then send the receipts to the OABA office, which will then be eligible for monthly and annual incentive prizes.

Carnivals and donors' names are published in OABA's monthly ShowTime Magazine


Please call or email us for more information on how to participate! If you already are part of this program and need additional books, please let us know.
