Give The Gift Of Giving

Donating on behalf of someone is a great way to spread the ‘spirit of the season’ Simplify gift giving this year without the stress and hassle of shopping, and avoid the buyer’s remorse of getting “just something” that will inevitably just end up in the back of the closet.

When you support FFBI through our secure online donation system through the end of 2017, you can choose to contribute in the name of a loved one or co-worker.

We’ve made it super easy on you too:

  1. Visit networkforgood.org in your favorite web browser.
  2. Choose an amount.
  3. In the “special purpose” section, tell us who you’d like to donate in honor of.
  4. Complete the transaction.

FFBI will mail a personalized card to you, or directly to the honoree, with a message that details ways in which the donation might be put to good use in the coming year.
