This Gift Policy provides guidance to sponsors as to how they can offer further support to your student. If you wish to send your student a gift, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please note: These gifts are not considered donations to the organization, and are not tax deductible. For this reason, to give a gift to your student, please mail a check to our PO box, and include your sponsored student’s name on the memo line.
Primary and Secondary Students
FoNR does not accept cash gifts from sponsors for primary or secondary students. If a sponsor wishes to offer extra financial assistance, a donation to FoNR’s general fund will facilitate the fulfillment of both basic and emergency needs that are provided for families and students in our program.
Secondary Student Graduates
A donation of up to $150 may be remitted to a student on the occasion of their high school graduation. Their Case Manager will help them select the gift.
A sponsor may gift their post-secondary student a particular item needed for them to continue their studies. This can be coordinated with our staff by contacting email@example.com.
Alternatively, sponsors can contribute to a laptop lending fund allowing for the purchase of laptops that are lent to post-secondary students for a period of time.
Students may be given a graduation gift of cash by their sponsor of up to $150.
Alumni are no longer financially supported by their sponsor or by NRCF. Alumni and sponsors can communicate via the portal or by WhatsApp or other means if they both so desire. Should a sponsor wish to offer a gift of cash to an alumni, they would do so without involving FoNR, such as via xoom.com.
