Partnership for Strong Families is a not-for-profit, 501(c) (3) child welfare organization. We endeavor to strengthen families and protect children by partnering with community stakeholders who believe, as we do, that every child deserves a chance to grow up in a safe and nurturing environment. Our community stakeholders, which include faith partners, community businesses and individuals, donate their time, money and resources to provide services to abused and neglected children as well as their families. If you would like to join us in this mission please consider donating in one of the following ways:
1. Monetary Donations – Throughout the year, we are constantly in need of additional funds to help meet the needs of our families. We desire to provide normalcy for the children who are in our care. Throughout the year unforeseen needs arise from needing to purchase diapers for a child who has just come into care only with the clothes on their backs to helping a child attend prom or purchasing school supplies for a child who has changed schools. The needs of the children we serve are all encompassing. Monetary donations throughout the year are a huge help to the children we serve. If you would like your donation to go to a specific need, please indicate that on the donation. We accept donations by check, which can be mailed to our office at 5950 NW 1st Place, Suite A; Gainesville, FL 32607, or through the PayPal link here.
2. Shop using AmazonSmile – The next time you make a purchase on Amazon, please consider using AmazonSmile and selecting Partnership for Strong Families as the receiving organization. AmazonSmile generously donates .05% of your purchase back to our organization. This may not seem like a lot of money, but if 100 people choose our organization and make one $50 purchase a year, that provides $250 a year for PSF! That would help give 5 children two of their three Christmas wishes through our Wish Upon a Star program.
3. Special Events – We often have unique opportunities to partner with us through events that are organized to benefit Partnership for Strong Families. On November 5, you can join us for our Superhero 5k. For more information, view the website here. In addition, every October we recruit donors for Wish Upon a Star Christmas Toy Drive where we give each child in our care two of their Christmas wishes. Each July, we collect school supplies for our Back to School Drive, which provides backpacks with school supplies to children who are in out-of-home care.
4. Designate us as your charity of choice – Federal employee throughout the United States and overseas can designate a contribution from their paycheck to be donated to PSF through the Combined Federal Campaign. The CFC code donors will use to designate PSF is 52397. In addition, employees of the University of Florida can designate a contribution from their paycheck to be given to PSF through UF Campaign of Charities.
