Join our "Friends of FOCUS"
Every day, FOCUS opens its doors to people who are out of work, experiencing homelessness, or struggling to make ends meet. Every day, people turn to FOCUS for a hot meal, health care, transitional housing, clothing, groceries, job training, and compassionate support.
By making recurring monthly donations to FOCUS, you will join our "Friends of FOCUS" and help us provide reliable, consistent programs that meet these daily needs. A recurring monthly donation to FOCUS North America supports our activities and programs throughout the year. It allows us to plan and budget accordingly, enabling us to encourage, serve, and inspire thousands of families in need
Any amount is meaningful and makes a difference. Here’s a sample of what your monthly donation can accomplish:
- $20 a month: (Food for a family of 4)
- $35 a month: (Back to school supplies for 12 homeless children)
- $50 a month: (One year’s subsidized rent for a graduate of our job training program)
Sign up by enrolling your credit card or debit card and designating a monthly donation amount. You can change the amount or cancel at any time.
Donor Advised Funds
Donor advised funds allow you to combine favorable tax benefits with flexibility in giving. An increasingly popular charitable vehicle, donor advised funds are an excellent way to both simplify your charitable giving and facilitate your strategic philanthropic goals, including gifts to FOCUS. These funds are established through your stock broker or financial planner.
If you have a DAF established, you can recommend a gift to FOCUS using the “DAF Direct” app on our website. Neither you nor FOCUS will incur any additional costs or transaction fees for giving through DAF Direct. Simply enter the amount, click next, and you will be taken to your financial institution’s website to complete gift. DAF Direct currently works with funds established through Fidelity, Schwab, and the Kansas City Community Foundation.
