Sponsor a Foundation Communities Family

This is a great way to engage your family, colleagues, friends, neighbors, congregation or book club in a fun, rewarding group service activity. We will match you with a family, send you their wish list and help coordinate delivery to the property staff.

Important Dates

November 22: Early Bird Sponsor Registration Deadline. Sponsor forms received by this date will be matched to a family before Thanksgiving.

December 5: Sponsor Registration Deadline.

December 9-16: Gift deliveries will be accepted by appointment.

 

Step 1: Complete your Sponsor Sign Up Form

Complete our online form – you will see an automated confirmation page after completing the online form.

 

Step 2: 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. Add meghan.hein@foundcom.org to your safe sender list and keep an eye on your spam folder as these message sometime get stuck in email filters. Our families will be notified that they have received a sponsor for the holidays.

Step 3: 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.

Please do not wrap gifts for children. This allows their parents to know what the children are receiving and they can enjoy wrapping presents for their family. Sponsors may include wrapping supplies with their donations. You may wrap gifts for adults.

Step 4: Deliver Your Gifts:

  • ALL deliveries will be accepted by appointment between December 9 and December 16. Specific dates and times vary by property. Saturday deliveries are available at certain properties, but not all. Sunday delivery is not available.
  • Specific delivery instructions and appointment schedules will be provided to you once you are matched to a family. Plan to schedule your delivery appointment by December 9. We are anticipating more than 400 sponsors this year and your advanced planning is appreciated.
  • Deliveries will be made to property staff at designated property drop-off locations, not directly to resident’s homes.
  • Download the Sponsor In-Kind Donation Receipt Form here. Turn in this form at your time of delivery. Save a copy for your 2019 tax return. This form is required for our accounting purposes.
