Support Lasting Solutions to Prevent and Heal Child Abuse

Give to the Max Day is November 17

FEC is on a mission to connect underserved families with the tools and resources they need to thrive. Your gift not only helps to sustain our programming and COVID-response efforts among those disproportionately impacted by abuse, but it’s an investment in programming that addresses underlying and systemic barriers to health, social, and economic equity.

Here’s what one of our clients this year said about our therapy services:

“You showed me that I can express my opinion in healthy ways while still staying strong with what I believe in. I will be forever grateful for that, I really am. In every step of my process you really took the time to listen to me, even when I was high on the scale of anger, still managed to listen to me and then show me there’s a better way to get my point across.” 

Give to the Max Day 2022 is coming up on November 17, and early giving began November 1! Any donation made between now and GTMD on November 17 will go toward our goal of raising $8,000!

Your gift helps our agency build stronger families and create safer homes for children impacted by trauma and abuse. Access to therapy, mentorship, and parent education has the power to break the cycle of abuse – to make a bright future possible for families on their path to healing. From Families Moving Forward to the Nest Program to new services like Youth Intervention Program, your financial gift directly supports our mission to create lasting solutions to prevent and heal child abuse.

Give to the Max Day is Minnesota’s single most impactful day of individual giving. This “annual celebration of generosity” provides supporters like YOU with the opportunity to contribute in meaningful ways and maximize the impact of your gift.
