FOU volunteers work on projects at their own expenses so that 100% donations will completely and directly benefit the underprivileged. There are several ways to support FOU projects:
1) Checks: Please address a bank or personal check to “FOU” and mail it to: Friends of the Underprivileged P.O. Box 1234 Bryan, TX 77806-1234 USA Friends of the Underprivileged is registered as a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization. Contributions to FOU are tax-deductible to the extent permitted by law.
2) Corporate matching: Many organizations encourage their employees (even retired employees) to donate to a charity group of their choice, and provide matching fund. Please contact your companies for details. FOU will be happy to provide necessary documentations for the process.
3) Shop with Amazon Smile:
