Like most non-profits, monetary gifts make the deepest impact, empowering ARJFON to allocate funds where they are needed as they are needed. As opposed to grants, which often make demands for new services to justify granting funds, monthly gifts give us the most security for planning ahead and continuing the vital services we already provide.
We also maintain a wishlist of items we are seeking, and we appreciate gifts of time as volunteers, too!
Checks can be made out to Austin Region JFON and mailed to PO Box 17516, Austin, TX 78760
Become a monthly sustainer of Justice For Our Neighbors! The stability of monthly gifts helps us to plan ahead and puts us in better positioning with certain grant groups.
