Family and Children’s Services is a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization
We respect the right of our donors to know how their money is being spent to further Family and Children’s Services’ mission.The agency receives funding from a variety of sources: Local, State and Federal public funding; corporate contributions, foundation grants and individual donors. Although we do get public funding, it is never enough to provide the diversified elder, family and trauma services desperately needed in our communities. The majority of the public contracts we receive do not cover operational costs— utilities, food, facilities maintenance, staff and information technology— of our organization. In many instances, we cannot sustain these public grants without matching them with support from the private sector, making your contributions critical to the success of Family and Children’s Services and its mission of building self-confidence, resilience and hope.
Family and Children’s Services is a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization registered with the Internal Revenue Service/ Department of the Treasury. Therefore, your donations are tax-deductible to the fullest extent permitted by applicable law. As a donor, you receive an acknowledgment that includes a confirmation of your donation for your tax records.
We are proud to report that Family and Children’s Services earns high marks from those agencies whose job it is to monitor the activities of nonprofit organizations. According to the Better Business Bureau Wise Giving Alliance, nonprofit organizations should spend at least 65 percent of their total expenses on program activities, with remaining funds going to administrative and fundraising expenses. Family and Children’s Services continues to meet and exceed these minimum standards with 86 percent of our total annual expenses going directly to program services for clients in our communities.
