Funding & Support
Faith in Action is a grassroots organization that relies on the community for financial support. Cash contributions allow Faith in Action to cover operating costs — the costs of training, coordinating, managing, and motivating volunteers; as well as insurance; supplies; continuing education; and other administrative costs. In-kind contributions also help Faith in Action defer expenses.
Because there are no fees charged for any service, support from the community is crucial. All contributions to Faith in Action directly benefit the persons receiving assistance.
Faith in Action of the River Cities, Inc. is a 501(c)(3) organization. Donations are tax deductible as allowed by the IRS.
There are several ways you can provide the much needed support our organization requires, many of which are quite fun.
- NIP Tax Credits: Every Fall, Faith in Action looks to be able to provide Neighborhood Investment Program tax credits, and the good news is, they’re here! In the past, many of you have received NIP Tax Credit vouchers which “give back” half your donation on your taxes. We’re happy to say that this fiscal year FIA received $11,250 in tax credits, $7,250 still available as of October 22, 2018. For donations over $500, you receive a voucher which is a credit against your WV personal or business income taxes. The donation still is fully deductible on your federal tax forms. If this opportunity is of interest to you, please call the office at (304) 697-1274 for more details. Hurry – they are going fast!!
- Huntington Area Landmarks Jigsaw Puzzles: There are two puzzles available -- local landmarks including Veterans' Memorial Field House, Marshall Old Main and Marshall Memorial Fountain AND churches/Congregations of the Huntington area. Enjoy a look at the variety of architecture on display in Huntington. Puzzles cost $15 each and are available at The Red Caboose in Heritage Station; at the Huntington Museum of Art; and through the Faith in Action Office.
