"Caring and Commitment in Action"

AL Fresno Chapter Financials

Where does Assistance League® get its funding and how is that money spent? The largest source of income is the Assistance League Thrift Boutique, our resale store located at 4771 N. Blackstone Ave., between Shaw and Gettysburg and it is totally staffed and operated by volunteers.  Grants and donations from the community enable us to fulfill our commitment to the programs funded. Assistance League members very generously contribute with dues and by supporting various member events.

In spending the funds raised, the first commitment is to Assistance League® programsOperation School Bell continues to be our signature program. Operation Bear Hug and our auxiliary Assisteens® have been important programs since the very beginning of Assistance League®

Another program established in 2006 benefits the elderly and shut-ins known as Operation Gift Box.  Supplies to fill hundreds of gift boxes are purchased with funds.  Funds must also be spent to keep the AL Thrift Boutique running and there are always some administrative expenses.  The goal is to keep these costs to a minimum so that the majority of the money provides services to those in our community that are most in need.  The annual budget is in excess of $100,000.  Therefore, fundraising is a constant challenge.  Over $100,000 is needed for Operation School Bell alone.  With AL Thrift Boutique, grant writing and our Community SponsorsAssistance League® will continue to offer programs that benefit Fresno County families in need.

Assistance League® of Fresno is a 501(c)(3) organization, and as such, all donations are tax-deductible. Our Federal tax ID number is
