2022 End of Year Appeal

As a part of our end of year appeal campaign, FPCCT is participating in the global giving movement of Giving Tuesday on November 29, 2022!

As you know, Family Promise of Central Connecticut provides vital services to families experiencing housing instability and homelessness in Connecticut. According to state data, over 32,000 households sought housing instability/homelessness services from our state’s social service hotline this year.

We are dreaming of a future where every child has a place to call home. You too can join our efforts to end homelessness one family at a time!

The social media company, Meta, has pledged to match the first $7 million dollars in donations made on Giving Tuesday on Facebook. FPCCT is eligible for those matching funds! If you donate first thing on Tuesday November 29th on Facebook using our campaign link below, your generosity has the chance to be matched dollar for dollar!

This Giving Tuesday, please make a donation and hopefully it can be doubled by Meta’s pledge! Proceeds from this fundraiser will benefit our Homelessness Prevention program which is currently serving 23 families. 

There will be other ways and opportunities to give during our end of the year appeal campaign! More details will be announced soon!
