Ways to Help

There are all sorts of ways to support The Center for Family Justice.

Recurring donations

Instead of writing one lump-sum check, many donors prefer to set up a recurring gift each quarter or month, for $5, $10, $25, $100 – or any amount they can afford.
Donate Now to set up your recurring quarterly or monthly donation. At any time in the future, you can edit your donation.

For more information about donations, contact Marissa Donnelly at mdonnelly@CenterForFamilyJustice.org or call 203-334-6154, ext. 121.

Third-party events

Many supporters have given us a big financial boost by sponsoring their own events, staging everything from a dog walking party or tennis party to a cocktail party for 80 or a fancy sit-down dinner.

The idea is to do some entertaining you might have done anyway, such as a pool party, a movie party or an evening of bridge, and ask your friends to write a check to The Center. Our dog-loving supporter invited her friends to take a group walk with the pooches one morning, and then served everyone breakfast at her house. One man hosted a poker and cigar party for his friends.

Some hosts have a staff member from The Center attend to talk about the work we do.

For more information about third-party events, contact Marissa Donnelly at mdonnelly@CenterForFamilyJustice.org or call 203-334-6154, ext. 121.
