There are many ways to get involved with FPWA, including volunteer opportunities, membership, and financial support.
FPWA relies on generous donors to support our work in the community. Every contribution is important. You can make an online donation, or contact us to find out how to make a bequest or a gift of assets.
FPWA operates one of the largest toy drives in NYC. On average, we receive more than 50,000 requests from our member agencies for toys, educational supplies and clothing for children and youth, but we’re only able to fulfill approximately 10% of that need. You can help give the gift of holiday cheer this year by giving to our toy drive.
FPWA welcomes in-kind donations that can be distributed to our member agencies. You can donate tickets to sporting events, the theater and circus, new clothing (particularly career-wear clothing), and new school supplies. If you would like more information on how to make in-kind donations, please contact Member Support Coordinator Gilda Flores.
Social service agencies and faith-based institutions within the New York City metro area that have 501(c)(3) status and support economic equity for their constituents are invited to apply for membership with FPWA. FPWA welcomes non-sectarian and sectarian nonprofit agencies that serve people regardless of age, religious affiliation, ethnicity, race, gender, or sexual orientation.
