Employer and Workplace Giving

Many employers sponsor matching gift programs and will match any charitable contributions made by their employees. Check with your HR department or Corporate Relations to see if your donations are able to be matched and the process.

If the employer is eligible, request a matching gift form from the employer either online or send it completed and signed to:

Erin Johnson, Director of Development
538 Clinton Avenue #1
Brooklyn, NY 11238

For more information concerning the Matching Gifts Program, contact us at


Foundation Partnerships

Many foundations are guided by similar principles as FAN4Kids and wish to support an organization that helps to empower kids and families learn about the importance of fitness and nutrition, while transitioning schools in impoverished neighborhoods with food insecurity to become beacons of health in the communities we serve. For more information on how to support please call (201) 349-7955 or email erinj@fan4kids.org.

Corporate Giving

Many corporations are choosing to give back to charities as part of their corporate policy, be it with sponsorship donations and/or corporate volunteering programs. FAN4Kids has created a corporate sponsorship program which will allow your company to support a worthy cause while also receiving marketing benefits to promote the goodwill of your organization.

Gifts of Stock

Donating appreciated securities is a wonderful way to help support FAN4Kids. It is FAN4Kid’s policy to sell the stock or security and put the proceeds right to work for our kids + families. Per the IRS, FAN4Kids establishes the value of the stock by calculating the mean average price on the date ownership is transferred.

Before making such a gift, please make sure to discuss your particular situation,including tax benefits, with your financial advisor. Please contact us at (201) 349-7955 or roliver@fan4kids.org for instructions on securities transfers. It is important that you notify FAN4Kids in advance of any transfer using this form so that you will be properly credited for your gift.

Donor Advised Funds

A donor-advised fund, or DAF, is a giving vehicle established at a public charity and allows charitable contributions. With a DAF, you will receive an immediate tax deduction and then recommend grants from the fund over time. You can support our non-profit by directing gifts to FAN4Kids through your donor-advised fund. If you have questions, please email erinj@fan4kids.org

FAN4Kids All Stars Corporate Sponsorship Program

FAN4Kids is dedicated to fighting the twin challenges of childhood obesity and food insecurity through its’ holistic, multi-pronged, and metrics driven school-based fitness and nutrition program. Our consistent, strong impact in the communities with the greatest need has been supported by data tracked since 2009. The support of our partners has been paramount and integral to FAN4Kids’ success in improving the health and well-being of our students and their families.

FAN4Kids created the FAN4Kids All Stars Corporate Sponsorship Program so we can work with our partners to continue to grow the FAN4Kids program and reach even more children and families in underserved NYC and NJ communities. FAN4Kids has reached almost 27,000 students and families as of 2021, yet there are many more that would benefit from the improved nutrition and fitness habits and improved health–especially decreases in childhood obesity and its related diseases. The covid-19 pandemic has laid bare the inequities in health outcomes that exist in marginalized communities. FAN4Kids has been working to reduce these inequities since 2004.

FAN4Kids seeks to collaborate with corporate and foundation partners who are committed to our vision and mission, and ready to support our meaningful and impactful work to improve the health and wellness of children and families in the communities most in need.

FAN4Kids is proud of and grateful for the partnerships we have formed throughout the years, and the mutually supportive relationships we developed. FAN4Kids supports its partners: through marketing and communication across our social media channels, increasing brand awareness and showcasing our partner’s commitment to children’s health, wellness and equity; through customized volunteer opportunities that will increase employee satisfaction and retention; and by participation in community events and activities that will meet partner’s business objectives
