According to AARP, “poll conducted by Edge Research on behalf of the Blackbaud Institute for Philanthropic Impact, revealed that boomer contributors gave $58.6 billion to nonprofits last year, with the average boomer benefactor giving $1,061. Boomer donors on average contribute to four charities.
Boomer giving has fallen slightly in recent years, from an average $1,212 in 2013, when the generation accounted for 43% of charitable donations. But 60% of boomer donors said their level of giving will stay the same next year, while another 12% said it will increase.
The Institute’s report notes that the average American charitable donor is age 64, which suggests that boomers will remain the biggest source of charitable dollars for the next few years.
Thirty-five percent of boomers make contributions through charity websites. Some 27% give by mail, while 11% use social media websites to make contributions. Three percent give via text messaging.
Fifty-two percent of boomers think they make their biggest positive impact on worthy causes by giving money, while others see volunteering (19%) and raising visibility through word of mouth (8%) as the way to make the biggest difference.”

Making a difference in a child's life...
Making a difference in the lives of those who are in-need is rewarding work, however, sometimes it can take decades before that impact is fully realized. One such example came from a young man, who was honorably discharged from the military--and now a college student completing a service learning project required through his studies, selected FFP because he remembered receiving holiday meals and Christmas presents as a child through our programs. Not knowing at the time that his mother also received groceries from the pantry while he was a child, which helped keep them fed--giving him the energy to study in school, he now could volunteer to serve others through the same organization that assisted his family in their time of need many years before. This not only satisfied his course requirements but it also sparked his desire to give back and show his gratitude by
helping other families get back on their feet, too.
GET INVOLVED...Do something BIGGER than YOURSELF...
Little Emily is one of our kiddos whose family depends on receiving nutritious food from our pantry. Not only do we take pride in our services but especially the food we provide our families in-need with. A good healthy diet is imperative for everyone...starting the day off right with a nutrient dense meal keeps our brain and vital organs functioning properly...and we all know that this is essential for
the growth of children. Here's to "food for thought"...
Our New Look...The pantry has spent the last few months going through a transformation! We are devoted to our community...and to all who embrace our mission and vision. The Fallbrook Food Pantry deserves the same kind of love and attention as our clients do...so, we decided to pamper
ourselves and ring in the New Year with a fresh new look...a brand that can
be spotted and recognized from miles away.
If you are looking to get involved in a BIG way--with a non-profit that cares deeply about its clients, donors, volunteers and sponsors--then you may want to consider partnering up with FFP. We
offer Corporate Sponsorships that provide your organization with the opportunity to
really make a difference in the lives of those who need it most!
Together, we can positively impact our community--
one hungry family at a time.
