Donations

July 16, 2019

FCCAA has been serving Fayette County for over 50 years, which is an accomplishment that could not have been achieved without the help from caring individuals.  For this reason, we are always grateful for the wonderful individuals, businesses, and organizations that make our mission a success. 

Ultimately, our goal is to improve the living conditions in Fayette County so poverty is eradicated; no one in the county will be hungry, homeless, lonely, undereducated, or immobile.  By donating to our agency, your gift would help bring us closer to making this goal a reality.

There are a few ways to make a donation to our agency online.

Donate through Network for Good: You are able to customize the donation amount and select the frequency of the donation. Should you prefer your donation benefit a particular FCCAA program such as Aging, Meals on Wheels, Food Bank, Housing, or Education, please indicate your program of choice in the “Note” section during your check out.  If no program is indicated, your donation will go where it is most needed to help Fayette County families in crisis.   You are also able to honor or remember someone with your donation.

Donate through PayPal: You are able to customize the donation amount and choose between a one-time donation or a monthly donation.  If you choose a monthly donation, you are able to change or cancel the recurring donation anytime in your Paypal settings.  If you don’t have a PayPal account, you can sign up while entering your payment information.  If you do not wish to sign up for a PayPal account but would still like to donate, you can donate through Network for Good.

Donate by shopping on AmazonSmile: When you shop on AmazonSmile, you can generate Amazon Smile donations for FCCAA.  Shopping on AmazonSmile is the same as shoppoing on Amazon (with the same inventory and deals), except 0.5% of the price of your eligible AmazonSmile purchase will be donated to our agency.
