Passing the Hat for Fairbanks Homeless

The North Star Community Foundation is 'Passing the Hat' to gain donations to support the FHHC in their mission.  The goal of the campaign is $20,000 which will enable two upcoming FHHC events (see below)  Through the generosity of the Alaska Mental Health Trust Authority, Alyeska Pipeline, and Golden Heart Rotary the challenge grant of $10,000 has been established.

Every dollar you donate to the Winter 2017 Pass-The-Hat campaign will be matched by a dollar from the challenge grant.

We are the water keepers — the Friends of Fox Spring. We are actively working together to protect a precious community water resource: our Fox Spring.
    
The state has operated Fox Spring for more than 50 years and thousands of local citizens depend on this supply of good water. Interior Alaskans understand the state budget constraints and the need for financial contributions, and Friends of Fox Spring gladly accept that responsibility.

Help us keep Fox Spring Flowing.

The Fairbanks Housing and Homeless Coalition (FHHC) is an association of community members and organizations joining forces to eliminate homelessness in the Fairbanks North Star Borough. The 1994 Task Force on Homelessness has grown into a coalition of over 30 agencies providing lifesaving services to Fairbanks’ homeless and at-risk populations that endure the harshest of conditions and a struggling economy. The coalition’s January 2017 Point In Time (PIT) count assessed well over 200 currently homeless individuals in Fairbanks.

Bring Joy to the less fortunate this holiday season.

It is time to support Santa's Helpers, who keep the long-time Fairbanks tradition of Santa's Clearing House going strong.

In addition to providing a financial accounting umbrella, NSCF is providing online donation collection for contribution to the Santa's Helpers project.

With community support, families will receive a week’s worth of staples, a holiday meal and gifts for each child under age 18.

Online donations can be made via credit card, PayPal account or by sending a check. The campaign to cover expenses will remain open until the end of the year.
