Giving to Family Service Association

 

How To Help FSAYour Gift Matters!

For over 100 years, Family Service Association has been a presence in South Jersey. From the early grassroots efforts to today’s highly diversified services, the Agency has strategically focused on the needs of our community. Please consider a gift to FSA. Each gift, no matter the size, is an investment in the lives of children and families in our community.

Ways to Give 

Thank you for considering a gift to Family Service Association! There are many ways to give that benefit our organization and you.

Gifts of Cash, Check, and Credit Card – Gifts of cash are the simplest method of giving. These gifts can be made in the form of cash, check/money order, or online through this website via PayPal. Donate here.

Gifts of Appreciated Property – An alternative to gifts of cash that some donors find more beneficial is giving appreciated property, particularly securities and real estate. While some gifts of real estate may involve certain timing issues, gifts of negotiable securities are nearly as easy to make as cash gifts.

Pledged Gifts – Pledges give donors the option to make payments toward a gift over time and often this flexibility allows a donor to give a larger total gift. Payments on a multi-year pledge can be made in a variety of ways; monthly, quarterly, bi-annually, or annually.

Matching Gifts – Ask your Human Resources Department if your company participates in matching gifts. This is a great way to double or triple the size of your donation to Family Service Association.

Planned and Deferred Gifts  There are a number of gift arrangements that provide special benefits to donors and may help them achieve their overall estate planning goals as well as their philanthropic goals. Planned and deferred gifts will make a significant contribution towards securing FSA’s future.

How to Help

FSA Children's programs

 

Annual Appeal Fund

The Annual Appeal Fund is critical to FSA’s fiscal health. A donation to the Annual Fund helps close the gap between state contracted funding and the actual cost of operating our programs.

A gift to the Annual Fund has an immediate impact as it increases our unrestricted revenue. Annual Fund gifts go toward meeting current needs, including facility and maintenance repairs, additional client assistance dollars, and programmatic supplies.

Who is an Annual Fund Donor?

Each year, FSA asks all Board members and friends in the community to support our Agency by making a gift to the Annual Appeal Fund. Our goal is to have 100 percent of our Board members make a gift and encourage others to give. FSA also actively seeks financial support from foundations and other grant organizations.

The Bargain Boutique is in Egg Harbor Township at our Main Office. Our shop offers a unique experience and is the perfect place when searching for a gift for family or friends, or a trinket for the kids. We offer fair prices, a great selection and a wide variety of items for adults and children. All proceeds from the thrift store are used to support important agency projects and initiatives.
