HOW IS FIA FUNDED?

FUNDING SOURCES

Individual Donors

Individual donations make up an important part of FIA’s budget. Please consider making a tax-deductible donation so that Faith in Action can continue to serve seniors and people facing difficult life situations. Many of our donors like to give through givemn.org.

Grants

Partial funding is provided under contract with the Central Minnesota Council on Aging through the Older Americans Act and through the Live Well at Home Grant with the Department of Human Services.

Cost Sharing

People receiving services are asked to share in the costs related to that service. Cost-sharing dollars are used to cover volunteer recruitment, training costs, insurance, and the administrative time of staff members. These costs are explained during the participant registration. Nobody will be denied services based on their willingness or ability to pay.
