Be a "ROCstar" by donating to the Institute on 12.11.13!



On Wednesday, December 11, 2013, you have the opportunity to be part of the third annual "ROCtheDay," organized by the United Way of Greater Rochester and co-sponsored by the City of Rochester, the County of Monroe, the Rochester Area Community Foundation and other groups. ROCtheDay is a 24 hour period of community members (you don't have to live in Rochester or the surrounding areas)  making a tax-deductible donation  to one or more of the 600 plus nonprofits participating this year. First Community Interfaith Institute Inc. is one of the few Afrocentric nonprofits who is seeking donors (or 'ROCstars") to be as generous as possible. The direct link to the Institute donation page is here. You get an immediate email confirmation after your donation is accepted; the email can be used as your income tax documentation for charitable contributions. First Community Interfaith Institute Inc. is hosting an open house on Dec. 11 from 3-7 pm to encourage donors to visit the primary benefactor of Institute donations, the Charles Riley Tutorial Program students. Visitors can also bring their laptops, tablets or smartphones to make a donation to the Institute during the open house. For those donors who don't have Internet access, there is a toll-free phone number 1.800.242.0238 that will be available for the 24 hour period of Dec. 11.

Below is a picture from our Kwanzaa Appreciation Program on Sunday, Dec. 1.
