$1 raised yields $3.50 in value

For each dollar we raise, we are able to organize volunteer hours and donations of food and bed nights worth an additional $2.50 in value.

Your tax-deductible donation is an investment in the life-changing mission of Family Promise of Carbon County and will directly impact the lives of homeless children.

100 percent of your donation will be put to work moving homeless families to sustainable independence, by providing food, shelter, and essential support services. Your generosity will allow us to raise awareness about poverty, and mobilize hundreds of volunteers into service.

Family Promise of Carbon County is a public non-profit organization. Online donations are safe and easy, but donors are also welcome to mail donations to:

Lehighton, PA 18235

Planned Giving

Including Family Promise of Carbon County in your estate plan or planned giving process is an effective way to support the mission in the future. Speak to your financial advisor about the tax advantages of gifting appreciated assets. Previous donors have gifted a residence and common stocks.  The donor is able to capture the value at the time of gifting

The concept of gifting appreciated stock is discussed in this article from the Wall Street Journal, “Three Tax Savvy Ways to Donate Appreciated Stock.”

Donate appreciated stock to charity

You also can give appreciated stock to charity. If you’ve held it for more than one year you may take a charitable tax deduction for the market value of the stock, and neither you nor the charity has to pay capital-gains taxes when the stock is sold. The combination can result in a bigger deduction (and more tax savings) for you and a bigger gift for the charity than if you sell the stock, pay the taxes, and donate the net proceeds.

We are thrilled to share a message from Family Promise Founder, Karen Olson:

"As you know, I was in Kessler Rehabilitation Institute in West Orange, NJ, for 12 weeks. I am now continuing my rehabilitation on an outpatient basis. I am pleased with the progress I made while I was at Kessler and look forward to continued progress going forward. I’ve been very touched by all the prayers and communications from people across the country.

Last week I volunteered at a local Family Promise host congregation. I was so very touched by the many families that came up to me with hugs and thanking me for starting Family Promise. They shared their own stories and appreciation of support by the volunteers and staff. One woman came up to me and broke down in tears — she said felt that she had reached rock bottom and was ready to give her 5 children to her ex-husband when she came into Family Promise. She was overwhelmed by the love and support she received — she described the volunteers as earth angels. Her expression of love was very healing to me.

I am so pleased to hear of all the great work going on across the country. And I look forward to seeing everyone in 2020 at our conference in Las Vegas.”
