We only ask you donations once a year; it’s just how we do things. But even though we only ask you for your support during the end-of-year period of giving, it doesn’t diminish the terrific importance of your financial support.
Quite simply, we exist because people like you make generous donations to our organization. No money, no mission. No money, no advocacy. No money, no blog, e-newsletter, or social media. No money, no new crosswalks or extra time to cross Route 355.
Can we count on you to make a contribution today to support Friends of White Flint and your community? You can easily and securely make a donation to Friends of White Flint by clicking here. Every gift, large or small, makes a tremendous difference.
