Ways to Give

Committed to Support

Families of Faith is approved for tax-exempt status by the IRS under section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code. Contributions should be tax-deductible in the manner prescribed by federal tax law. Please consult your tax advisor with questions.

 

We accept philanthropic gifts of cash, checks, securities, gifts in kind, and most importantly, your time. We are exploring the possibility of online giving, but we currently do not have a vehicle for online gifts.

Ways to give

Gifts of Cash or Check

Please make checks payable to Families of Faith Christian Academy and mail to:

FOFCA
Attention: Chris Stonebraker
PO Box 277
Channahon IL 60410

Corporate Matching Gifts

Matching gifts make multiplying your gift easy! Check your company website or contact your employer and see if your company offers a matching gifts program.

Gifts In Kind

You can donate items typically purchased by FOFCA as a gift-in-kind such as office equipment, building materials, and furniture. The estimated cash value, as determined by FOFCA, is tax-deductible. Contact Pastor Randy Blan before making your gift-in-kind donation.

Your Time

For volunteer opportunities to help meet the needs of FOFCA, please contact our Administrator, Karen Blan at 815.521.1381.

Gifts of Securities

Gifts of appreciated securities allow donors to avoid paying capital gains on the increase in value. Donors also receive a tax deduction for the fair market value at the time of the gift. To make a gift of securities, have your bank or broker contact Randy Blan, our Head Pastor at 815.521.1381.

Additional ways to give

Shoparoo

We have a fun, free way to raise money by taking pictures of your receipts from any restaurant or retailer with the Free Shoparoo app. No matter where you shop or what you buy, your receipts will help Families Of Faith!

Schools with just 40 active Shoparoo supporters earn an average of $1,000 a year! Once you sign-up, you’ll get a referral code to invite others. Both of you will earn a bonus donation when they snap their first receipt!

School Store

You can help Families of Faith when you shop online! SchoolStore.com is an online shopping mall where over 200 nationally known online stores have agreed to give a percentage of sales to K-12 schools. Companies like WalMart.com, Sears, Target, DisneyStore.com, Family Book Store, and Oriental Trading Company participate. Most merchant contributions average 5%-10%, but some go as high as 50% of sales! They also have discounted magazine subscriptions, gifts, and more!

GFS Food Store

A portion of each of your purchases goes to Families of Faith. Just let them know you are affiliated with us at check-out.

We collect BoxTops in October and February each year. As an incentive, we give a dress-down day coupon to students who bring in 75 or more BoxTops. Visit boxtops4education.com to learn more. Download their FREE app and scan your receipts to earn BoxTops too!
