Other Ways to Give

Host a Fundraiser

Community members can host fundraisers and designate Father Bill’s & MainSpring as the recipient of funds raised. If you are interested in organizing a fundraiser to benefit FBMS, please review our Guidelines for Hosting a Third Party Fundraiser and complete our Third Party Fundraiser Form.

Employer Matching Gift Programs

One of the best ways to encourage employee giving is through a matching gift program, which allows someone’s gift to double or even triple! Some companies even match gifts made by retirees and/or spouses, or will match volunteer hours served at FBMS. We encourage all of our corporate partners to notify employees when this option is available.

To find out if your company has a matching gift program, enter your employer’s name:
