“While my wife has been at the hospital, we’ve stayed at the Family House, and they’re beautiful people. It’s a clean place to stay that’s extremely affordable, so all you have to do is focus on your family members care. If you could see it in your heart to help donate to this amazing home, that would mean the world to me. Thank you kindly!”

–Anthony Gorga

Each year, members of the Family House community like Anthony hold Facebook fundraisers to raise money for our mission of being a “home away from home” for transplant families. Some people give up their birthdays and ask their Facebook

friends to donate to our cause in lieu of gifts, and others fundraise in honor or memory of a loved one. Whatever the reason, we are extremely grateful for each and every one! Since 2015, our community raised has over $20,000 from these online fundraisers—enough to help support over 500 nights of lodging for families who cannot afford our nightly fee.

Consider creating your own Facebook fundraiser this year!

Setting up a Facebook fundraiser is quick and easy. Follow the steps below to set yours up today!

  1. Log in to your Facebook account.
  2. Click Fundraisers in the left menu of your News Feed.
  3. Click Raise Money.
  4. Select Nonprofit/Charity.
  5. Select a charitable organization, choose a cover photo, and fill in the fundraiser details.
  6. Click Create.

Your friends and family will see your fundraiser when they log on, and then they can donate in just a few clicks.

It only takes a few minutes, and you can get started today!

We’d like to recognize the following community members for their Facebook fundraisers in 2018. You’ve helped provide our transplant families with a safe, comfortable place to stay, a warm meal, and transportation to and from doctor’s appointments and hospital visits. Thank you so much for hosting these fundraisers in honor of our mission!
