The Fairfield Community Foundation intends that the funds that people contribute and the causes they establish last to the next millennium and far beyond, but we need help in another, simpler way.
In the past 11 years, distributing more than $1,000,000 in scholarships and grants to Fairfield and Fairfield Township students and important charitable efforts, the cost of watching over and distributing those funds and the requirements of federal reporting and compliance have increased dramatically.
We need the help of Fairfield and Fairfield Township “Angels” to help with uncommonly generous contributions -- contributions that will not last forever. We need people with enough character to pledge support to the simple cause of doing good in the community and receiving precious little in return other than a nod of thanks and a bit of public recognition.
That said, Fairfield Angels are destined to be a special organization. There will be no doubt as to the nobility of this organization and it will not be political. The Fairfield Angels organization will be powerful in its results, yet built on an airy foundation of goodwill and selflessness.
We know. We are a test to your depth of generosity, but we hope you will join us in making a pledge of support over the next year.
We are most grateful for your consideration.
Angel pins are awarded to generous contributors who have donated at least $1000 to the Administrative Fund of the Fairfield Community Foundation.
