Family Promise of Gainesville FUND DEVELOPMENT​

Donations & Fundraisers

 

Family Promise of Gainesville benefits from the generous support of individual donors. These donors in many cases have supported the agency for a number of years. In addition support also comes from congregations and faith groups. These groups provide direct financial support, as well as hosting volunteers and shelter space. The support Family Promise of Gainesville receives from individuals and congregations in direct support and in-kind, form an important part of the foundation that supports our services to homeless families with children.

 

For the past 13 years, Family Promise of Gainesville has run a successful golf tournament titled "Fore The Families". This will continue to be a signature event, while at the same time the Board intends to develop a series of smaller events to provide support throughout the year.

 

On occasion congregations or groups will hold and event, and designate Family Promise as the benefactor. We will encourage these events, and seek out others to supplement our calendar of fundraisers.

Grants

We receive three recurring grants. A grant from the City of Gainesville as part of a federal block grant, named CDBG. A grant from Alachua County for agencies that provide targeted social services to residents in the county named CAPP. A grant from the federal emergency management agency (FEMA), for emergency shelter named ESG. Grants are often sought from private foundations and corporations with mixed success.

Major Gifts & Endowments

Family Promise receives larger "grants" from corporations on a periodic basis. Some individuals contribute significant gifts, but not as part of any coordinated giving. Going forward the Board will establish a coordinated effort to solicit major gifts from the local and regional community. The Board will also reach out to local financial planning professionals receive guidance to create an endowment. The purpose of the endowment is to provide permanent fund principle to provide support for the long-term financial viability of the agency, and ultimately to provide a source of interest income equivalent to the level of funds necessary to run annual operations.
