The Salvation Army in Fairfield County can only meet human needs in His name in Fairfield County because of gracious support from our community members – we can’t do it alone! Our volunteers and donors truly are the “army behind the Army.”
Each year, our donors and volunteers help ensure the longevity of our programming and services for youth, seniors and emergency/food assistance for those here in Fairfield County. In 2019 alone, our volunteers and donors contributed:
Every service we provide to those in need in our community costs money, and we protect every penny to ensure we’re responsible stewards of the dollars entrusted to us. We operate as efficiently as possible to ensure as many dollars as possible are put back into service. Ninety-one percent of dollars are used to directly provide programs and services for our community – only 7% is used for administration, with 2% going to fundraising.
Many people don’t realize this, but we aren’t funded through the national Salvation Army – our funds are raised locally, and that guides what services we can provide for our community. In fact, 74% of our funds in 2019 were contributions from our generous donors.
