Make An Online Donation to FIRC

FIRC empowers families with the education and support needed to thrive and remain to live and work in Summit County. In most communities, FIRC would be 4 separate nonprofits. Fortunately for Summit County families, we are a comprehensive one-stop agency. All FIRC services are designed to strengthen families, resulting in stronger parents, children, employees, and community. Your continued donations are what make this work possible. 

FIRC's FY2020 Income Sources

Thank you for giving us hope and strength – we will continue to pass it on to our neighbors who need it most. We are grateful to be a part of this amazing community!

Other Ways to Donate


Donor Advised Fund (DAF)

A donor-advised fund (DAF) is a charitable giving program that allows you to combine the most favorable tax benefits with the flexibility to support your favorite causes.

If you have a donor-advised fund, DAF Direct enables you to recommend grants to this nonprofit directly from your DAF (as long as your DAF’s sponsoring organization is participating).

Taxpayer EIN: 84-1252900


Electronic delivery of stock shares is a secure and expedient delivery process available and provides efficient internal control and cost savings. You may also transfer certificates directly. These donations are considered non-cash donations.

Please note, the donor’s broker will provide the donor with a tax receipt for the fair market value on the day of shares transferred. FIRC will send the donor an acknowledgment letter that describes the gift of stock, including the ticker, the number of shares and the date of the donation. The acknowledgment letter from FIRC cannot list the value of the stock since as a nonprofit, FIRC does not assign value to securities or gifts in-kind. 

To help you facilitate a gift of stock, please use the following instructions:

  1. Provide FIRC a notification of donor intent. Regardless of the method chosen to deliver a gift of stock, the donor or the transferring broker should provide the following information to FIRC, for audit and acknowledgment purposes:
  2. FIRC’s broker can provide the donor and donor’s broker with the information to facilitate a transfer of stock. Please send an e-mail or call FIRC’s broker for transfer instructions: Bridget Hattingh, Financial Advisor, Edward Jones Investments, Phone: 970-455-8410, Email:


Organization: Family Intercultural Resource Center

Account #99213288

DTC # 0057

Some stock donations do not provide donor information to FIRC, please email Sarah Grant at to ensure your gift is acknowledged.


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 set up 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.

Donations or Volunteer Link

FIRC offers Summit County’s largest free Food Markets. Without donations, FIRC would not be able to keep the food market shelves stocked.

Non-perishable food donations can be dropped off at the Breckenridge Food Market (1745 Airport Rd.) or Dillon (340 Fiedler Ave). 

If you have any questions, please contact

Breckenridge Thrift & Treasure location is not accepting any donations at this time. The Store is temporarily closed. 

If you have any questions, please call: 970-262-3888.

Sol Center Capital Campaign

An 18,150 square foot building will house a community food market, thrift store, offices for FIRC and Building Hope staff, and meeting space for community partners. Currently, the two organizations operate out of five different buildings, stretching budgets thin and reducing collaboration opportunities. Having all services under one roof increases ease of access, reduces stigma, and encourages clients to seek services they otherwise might not.

Bag Project

Bag Ladies

The FIRC Bag project was started by a group of volunteers in 2008 looking to raise money for FIRC’s emergency assistance fund. Their original goal was to raise $300 by using donated materials to FIRC’s thrift store and sewing them into reusable grocery bags. 10 years later, they have 45 volunteers, known in the community as the Bag Ladies, working on a variety of upcycled products and they have raised over $250,000 for families in Summit County.

100% of Bag Project sales go to help locals facing eviction, disconnection of utilities or the FIRC Food Bank. If you would like to learn more about volunteering, please contact Martha or email

Products include: Tuxedo Wine Bags , Wine Glass Coasters, Reusable Grocery Bags, Plastic Bag Holders, Purses, Yoga Mat Bags, iPad Bags and Purses.

Look for our wine bags at: Dillon Ridge Liquors,  City Liquors, Whispering Pines Distillery, Frisco Fun & Formal, Antlers in Frisco and Breckenridge Distillery. 

Thank you to our business supporters:  Mountain Comfort, Summit Thrift & Treasure, Summit Quilters and Markel Design.
