Sponsor Request Forms due by Friday, December 1. Click here to complete our online form or download and return the form at the bottom of this page. You will see an automated confirmation page after completing your form online.

Get matched. Please allow up to 3 business days to receive your match. Once we match you with a family, you will receive an email with some basic information about the family along with their wish list and details about each family member. Keep an eye on your spam folder as these message sometime get stuck in email filters. Families will be notified that they have received a sponsor for the holidays.

Shop for gifts! Here are our Guidelines:

  • Please purchase new gift items. You are not expected to provide everything on the list. On average, you can expect to spend about $50 – $100 per family member.
  • Please do not purchase more than $200 in gift items per person. Please contact Foundation Communities if you have a special request to exceed this amount.
  • If donating gift cards:
    • Ensure with the store that your gift card is loaded with your selected amount before delivery.
    • Write the gift card amount on the card.
    • Enclose gift cards in a separate envelope labeled with the family ID and total gift card amount.

Gift Delivery:

  • ALL deliveries will be accepted by appointment between Tuesday, December 5 and Monday, December 11. Dates and times vary by property. Saturday deliveries are available at certain properties, but not all.
  • Specific delivery instructions and appointment schedules will be provided to you once you are matched to a family.
  • Deliveries will be made to selected property staff at designated property drop-off locations, not directly to resident’s homes. We appreciate your understanding our responsibility to uphold client confidentiality and maintain trust.
  • Download the Sponsor In-Kind Donation Receipt Form here. Turn this form in to the property contact at your time of delivery. Save a copy for yourself as this will serve as your charitable donation receipt for your 2017 tax return. This form is required for our accounting purposes.
