There are many ways to get involved with FPWA, including volunteer opportunities, membership, and financial support.
FPWA relies on generous donors to support our work in the community. Every contribution is important. You can make an online donation, or you may contact us to find out how to make a bequest or a gift of assets.
FPWA coordinates volunteer service projects between our member agencies and corporations looking for community outreach projects. The diversity of issues and geography of our membership means that we can tailor a service project to meet the needs of both the company and the member agency. For more information, please contact Gilda Flores, Member Support Coordinator, or download our Corporate Volunteer Guide.
FPWA operates one of the largest toy drives in NYC. On average, we receive more than 50,000 requests from our member agencies for toys, educational supplies and clothing for children and youth, but we’re only able to fulfill approximately 10% of that need. You can help give the gift of holiday cheer this year by giving to our toy drive. For more information, please contact Gilda Flores, Member Support Coordinator.

FPWA welcomes in-kind donations that can be distributed to our member agencies. You can donate tickets to sporting events, the theater and circus, new clothing (particularly career-wear clothing), and new school supplies. If you would like more information on how to make in-kind donations, please contact Gilda Flores, Member Support Coordinator.
Social service agencies and faith-based institutions within the New York City metro area that have 501(c)(3) status and support economic equity for their constituents are invited to apply for membership with FPWA. FPWA welcomes non-sectarian and sectarian nonprofit agencies that serve people regardless of age, religious affiliation, ethnicity, race, gender, or sexual orientation.
