New Ways to Donate

Picture of both logos

Before you shop...Before you toss...Think of FEF First!


FEF has joined forces with iDonate - a company through which you can make cash and non-cash donations to FEF. Previously, FEF had no process in place to accept donations other than cash, stocks, and life insurance policies. iDonate will allow us to accept many other types of contributions. Click on the DONATE button at the top of the page (or click on the image above) to make your contribution.

The other new way to "donate" to FEF is while you are shoppiong online. AmazonSmile will donate 0.5% of all of your qualified purchases (10's of millions of items to choose from) when you choose FEF as your charity of choice. You can start this process by clicking on the DONATE button at the top of the page (or click on the image above) or by going to http://smile.amazon.com/ch/34-0714666.
