Join our month-long crowdfunding campaign during September to raise funds in support of our charitable care commitment and to make up for donations lost as a result of the cancellation of this year’s Polo Match due to COVID-19. All funds raised as part of the Families Helping Families campaign throughout the month will benefit Family House’s charitable care commitment, which ensures that all guests who stay at Family House pay a room rate that is 25% or more below the cost to operate it. In addition to providing affordable and safe accommodations, Family House offers numerous other amenities, including fully stocked kitchen pantries, discounted hospital parking vouchers, free transportation, meals prepared and served by Family House volunteers, visits from therapy dogs, complimentary tickets/passes to regional sports and entertainment venues, and much more.
Make a donation at the levels listed below for your chance to win a select prize package. All donors will be entered to win the Grand Prize Package. One random winner selected for each prize package will take place once the campaign ends on September 30 and will be announced in October. *see fine print for more details below.
