Wherever the Need is Greatest
Give a gift in the name of your chosen recipient(s) that provides an un-designated donation to Family-to-Family. Your gift will be used for everything from providing emergency food relief for families waiting for a sponsor to building our infrastructure so we can extend our reach into all 50 states! Gifts can be any amount.
Give a gift of a one-year family sponsorship in the name of your chosen recipient. Your gift of $360 will purchase groceries providing 7 meals a month for 12 months for a family of 4-6 living in poverty in one of F-to-F’s twenty-one U.S. sponsored communities. A gift announcement will be sent to the recipient of your gift. $360.
A Birthday Party in a Box
For many poor children in our country, birthdays are just another day… celebrated without cake, goody bags, balloons or gifts. With your gift in the name of a loved one or friend, Family-to-Family will assemble and send one Birthday in A Box, filled with everything needed for a small birthday party, to a child living in poverty. To date we’ve sent thousands, but there are still many more to send. A gift announcement will be sent to your recipient. $25.
Victory Garden Kit
A gift in the name of a friend, colleague or family member that keeps on giving. There is a Chinese proverb, “Give a man a fish, you feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish and you feed him for a lifetime.” The same can be said for fruits, vegetables and eggs.
With your donation, Family-to-Family will provide a Victory Garden Kit for one family in need living in one of the communities we help. The kit contains 10 egg-laying chickens, chicken feed, a water dispenser, vegetable seeds for two 5’ x 8’ planting beds, a hand tool set, a case of jars and a “How to Garden” manual…providing a family with the means to grow and produce fresh produce and eggs. A gift announcement will be sent to the recipient of your gift. $100.
