  • Workplace Giving

    Many people choose to support FRA through matching gift charitable giving campaigns at their place of employment. They prefer the convenience that payroll deduction programs allow. Your Company may have its own Corporate Employee Gift Program or participate in United Way or the NJ Combined Federal Campaign (our number is 6027.) Simply select or designate Family Resource Associates, Inc. under the Donor Option Plan.

  • In-Kind Gifts

    FRA's day-to-day expenses - from communications to printing and postage - are part of the cost of "building bridges of hope" for all those we serve. As a non-profit organization, we truly appreciate your help in keeping our administrative expenses low. Thank you for your continued support, and remember, whether you give a cash gift or a gift-in-kind, your donation is tax deductible in accordance with IRS regulations.

  • Major Gifts

    The future of FRA holds both program and facility challenges, creating an even greater need to receive significant funds through Major Gifts ($5,000 or more). As new technology becomes increasingly available for individuals with disabilities, the need for new bridges, connecting them to the latest technology tools increases as well.

    Major Gifts are another opportunity for donors to support special programs, projects, equipment or create an endowment fund to perpetually generate income to ensure the future of FRA. Major gifts can be pledged over five years and/or fulfilled through payments of cash or appreciated property such as stock.

    Major Gifts not only build bridges of hope for those we serve, but also may help you save on estate, income and capital gains taxes. We appreciate your support immensely and would be pleased to discuss how we can best meet your personal goals in making your gift to FRA. Feel free to contact Nancy Phalanukorn, Executive Director, at 732-747-5310 or by email at nphalanukorn@frainc.org
