OSTA Associate Members are those individuals who do not live in a park or marina community but recognize the valuable work which must be done to preserve our communities. So maybe your parent lives in a community and you want to get involved, or you have a special job in a related field, please join us!
We welcome all members equally and are thankful for your contribution.
OSTA is a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization. The IRS has issued guidelines that affect the charitable contribution portion of memberships. Under those guidelines, members may claim the amount of their membership, less the fair market value of benefits received. For OSTA members, the fair market value of benefits received is not substantial and your gift is tax-deductible to the fullest extent of the law. All additional charitable donations to OSTA are also tax-deductible.
