FCIF Raised Almost $80,000 with One Day to Give Drive
Dalton, GA, June 20, 2022-The Floor Covering Industry Foundation (FCIF) hosted its inaugural “One Day to Give,” a 24-hour online fundraising drive, on June 2. During the campaign, the non-profit received nearly $80,000 in donations which exceeded their goal for this event.
Andrea Blackbourn, the foundation’s executive director was elated, “Over 25% of these donations came from ‘first-time’ donors. Among donors who renewed past contributions, 25% accepted the +10% challenge. These results are very exciting, and we are looking forward to repeating this event in the future.”
One Day to Give united the floor covering industry to make a lasting impact on families faced with unexpected medical battles who need help getting back on their feet. FCIF is a 501(c)3 charitable non-profit that has been assisting floor covering workers and their families since 1981. The organization provides a way for the industry to “take care of its own” by providing financial assistance grants to those who are struggling with severe illnesses, injuries, and disabilities.
