For every $1 FOCAF receives in Federal funds, we must generate $.25 in non-federal match (or in-kind). In-Kind can be generated in 3 ways: Time, Talents and Treasures.
Time: Volunteering your time in or out of the classroom, such as helping our teachers in preparing activities for the classroom.
Talent: If you have experience or talents in a certain area that you would like to share with our children at the Head Start Center you can volunteer to come in and demonstrate for our children.
Treasures: If you would like to donate a monetary amount to help support our children and provide them with materials and equipment to strengthen their learning experience, you are welcome to donate.
Donations can be in 2 forms -
· Non-cash contributions by individuals, organizations, and businesses consist of donated services and materials that directly benefit an HS/EHS program are counted as in-kind when the services are provided, or when the donated goods are received and used.
· Cash contributions by individuals, organizations, and businesses are counted as in-kind when the cash donated is spent on an allowable program cost (not when the cash is donated to or generated by FOCAF).
Please contact our program for information on how to donate.
