We’re dedicated to helping anybody who walks through our doors in need of help. Unrestricted monetary donations to Father Bill’s & MainSpring allow us the greatest flexibility in responding immediately when a friend or neighbor is in need and to bridge the gap in funding we experience persistently at our emergency shelters.
Donations can be made by credit card, check, or cash. These donations are fully tax-deductible and can be directed to specific areas of need at the donor’s request.
For your reference, Father Bill’s & MainSpring’s federal tax ID number is 22-2538039.
“Helping FBMS help our community is a blessing that I am privileged to be a part of."
