Donations can be made easily online using the form below. Remember that credit card and PayPal fees will be deducted from the amount that actually ends up coming to Family Fest. You will be given the full donation receipt. To make sure that 100% of your donation goes to Family Fest Ministries, we suggest that you use a check. You can easily set up an automatic monthly donation or make a one time gift.
It is our goal that 100% of your donation go to doing the good work at Family Fest. The best way to do this is to make your donation by check. We have found that online donations sites such GiveMN Give to the Max and Razoo will take up to 4.9% of your donation before it gets to Family Fest. To donate by check, please mail to Family Fest, Inc., 140 West 98th Street, STE 206, Bloomington, MN 55420.

You can make a pledge to donate monthly, quarterly, yearly, or whatever works best for you. This is a wonderful way for you to contribute on a planned basis. It also is very helpful in our budgeting process.
Donating appreciated stocks and securities to Family Fest, instead of writing a check, can offer you a tax-efficient alternative way to support Family Fest Ministry. By donating your appreciated stock, you will escape any capital gains taxes you would have paid if you had sold the asset. In addition, you can deduct the current market value of the gift for income tax purposes, just as if you had made a cash donation. For more info, check out this article on giving stocks.
It is simple to make a donation of stocks or securities to Family Fest. Contact Family Fest and we will send you the account number and the DTC number needed for the transfer.
Let us know when you have made the donation and Family Fest will send you a donation acknowledgment letter, stating the fair market value of the gift at the moment it is transferred to our account. This letter can be used for tax-deduction purposes.
