November 28th is #GivingTuesday, a national movement founded in 2012 to redefine the giving spirit during the holiday season, and to help non-profits like ours raise greatly needed funds.  This year The Fairbanks Family in America is launching our first #GivingTuesday campaign, and we hope you will help us by making a donation.

Are you looking for a special gift that will help preserve your family homestead AND honor a loved one?   You can make an honorary gift to the FFA and we will send the recipient a Fairbanks House Season’s Greetings card with notification of your gift in his/her honor,  and a Fairbanks House tasseled book mark to you both as our gift.

To give, please visit our donation page.
