Orang Utan Republik Foundation volunteers will be doing outreach, education, and fundraising events on a continuous basis in communities across the country and around the world. This page will list those events that are open to the public where you or your friends can learn more about and support OURF’s efforts to raise awareness in order to save the species. If you are interested in hosting an event, please contact us at info@OrangUtanRepublik.org. We can discuss various ways you can get involved to make a difference.
NOTE: The COVID-19 Pandemic has caused the cancellation of outreach events locally and around the world. Please monitor this page for updated information.

Location: Live Streaming Globally
Date & Time: August 15, 2020 - 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Description of Event:
Join Orang Utan Republik Foundation (OURF) members and supporters as we host our 1st Virtual Fundraiser and our 7th Annual Pongo Environmental Awards in support of OURF and its various programs. You don't need to drive anywhere or take up too much of your time. We will host this event on multiple video platforms. While you do not need to purchase a ticket to attend, ticket holders and sponsors will see their names appear during the Livestream event.
Actor and Environmentalist Ed Begley Jr. will join us from his ecofriendly home, and The Orangutan Project founder and president Leif Cocks will be with us from Perth, Australia. Pongo Environmental Award recipients will accept their awards from locations around the world. Surprise guests will join us as well. It should be memorable and exciting.
On the date/time of the event, simply logon, listen to the speakers, enjoy the entertainment, and bid on some of the auction items at Charity Auctions Today. You will be able to place your bids online starting on August 8th, and if you are the lucky winner, you can pay through the website for the items which will be emailed (coupons and certificates) or shipped to you.
Note: while we encourage you to use the ticketing function on this webpage, you can also send a check to OURF to be recognized as a donor during the event. Please make sure to send your email address so we can send you the login information.
COVID-19 has changed the way organizations fundraise. Help us make this effort a success so we can raise general funds for our operations and programs.
