dollars that make a difference


cents of every dollar goes towards program costs

$50 Exploring Food Together Session

Help teach children the importance of good nutrition. The Exploring Food Together program teaches preschoolers about fruits and vegetables and the importance of eating healthy so they can grow big and strong.

$100 Childcare for a Life Skills Class

Help parents attend a budgeting or parenting by providing childcare for the event. Many parents are trying to improve their money management or other life skills, but paying for a babysitter would only set them back in reaching their goals. this is shy FIRC provides free childcare and dinner with our classes, so it’s easier for everyone to attend.

$1,000 Family Support Services

Empower a parent to provide a safe and stable home for their children. FIRC’s case managers build relationships with parents and help them realize their strengths. Together they develop long-term goals for stability and work on strategies to deal with stress. When you support Case Managers, you are providing families with someone who can guide and support them through the transition of crisis into stability.

Planned Giving

Support a legacy to building stronger families and a stronger community. Please consider FIRC in your estate or legacy plans through a will, trust, retirement plan, life insurance policy or life income gift.

We encourage you to setup a meeting with our Executive Director to discuss how your gift can support FIRC.

A bequest is a gift you make to FIRC through your will or trust which indicates your desire to leave something of value toward FIRC’s future work.  A charitable bequest can be a specific dollar amount or a percentage of the value of your total estate, a gift of stock or life insurance, or even a gift from an IRA or other qualified retirement plan. Because these assets often carry a heavy income tax obligation to your heirs, they can be a particularly attractive source for funding your charitable gifts.
