OABA Circus Fund

Circus Fund donations are used to help the OABA maintain the right of circuses and USDA licensed performing animal owners to provide Americans with educational exhibits and performances of exotic animals. Funds allow the Association to hire professionals to assist with legislative and regulatory challenges that threaten our members’ businesses.


Camel Pin As a special thank you for your minimum donation of $25 to this most important fund, you will receive a beautiful 2014/2015 Camel lapel pin. Contact the OABA to request previous years’ pins from the collection, as they may also be available.Those who contribute at least $25 will be listed in our Circus Fund Contribution Report for one month in the ShowTime magazine. Donors of $50 or more will be listed in our Annual Contribution list published in the Midway Marquee Directory and listed every month in ShowTime.
