Faithful Fools has 3 sources of income:

Program revenue--our education and advocacy programs generate revenue when we provide services to various schools and organizations.

Donations--support from people like you fills in the gaps where grants and program revenue fall short

Grants--we are supported by grants for specific programs and activities

Grants typically don't pay for on-going expenses like salaries and the electric bill. But without salaries and without the lights on there is no community at the corner of Turk & Hyde to go to the doctors or  help move. 

We are there when people are falling through the cracks in the system. From sitting with someone waiting for a medical diagnosis to getting a bed when someone is moving into their first home after years on the streets, we are there. When you donate to the Fools, you are present with us as we do the work of being in community.

Consider making a bequest to Faithful Fools. 

You may also find that a donation of appreciated stock meets your needs. 

Ask your estate planner or give us a call to find out more about how to make Faithful Fools part of your long term financial plans.

WE HAVE WHAT WE NEED BEFORE IT IS ASKED OF US

Faithful Fools is a community.  We are often called upon to be the "space in-between." We are there when other agencies can't be. Sometimes it takes too much time to arrange for a taxi voucher to get to an appointment, so we provide a ride.  Providing extra dollars for an extraordinary expense  sometimes doesn't fit within a traditional non-profit's budget. That might be paying for the cremation of someone whose family is struggling with medical expenses or it might be paying for a background check in order to get a job. That's when we step in. We maintain the human resources to accompany people when needed and we maintain a small assistance budget to help with the expenses that can make the difference between being housed and being homeless. 

Operating expenses like utilities and salaries are often not covered by grants, so we depend upon donations for the bulk of our budget. The majority of our donors give a few hundred dollars a year (some  give $10 or $15 a month) and it all makes a difference.

When you are generous, we can be generous too. We live by the adage that "We have what we need before it is asked of us." That means we have the time when someone needs to talk and we have those extra dollars for a pair of shoes.
