Do I have to register my third-party event with The Family Resource Network?

Yes. To protect the hard-earned reputation of The Family Resource Network the organization associates exclusively with quality third-party events. Third-party fundraising event organizers must also agree to comply with The Family Resource Network policies.

How can I register my third-party event?

Please read and complete the third-party registration form, which describes the conditions under which third-party fundraising can be held. Please include the date and location of the event, a description of the event and the event organizer’s name and contact information. You may also contact Resource Development at (609) 392-4900 or events@familyresourcenetwork.org. Your third-party event is not authorized until you receive express approval from The Family Resource Network. We reserve the right to decline any offer to hold a third-party event.

Can I conduct a third-party fundraising event if I am under 18 years old?

Yes, but your parent or guardian must sign the third-party registration form on your behalf.

Can friends or family members make a donation to The Family Resource Network in lieu of gifts for my anniversary, wedding or birthday?

Yes. These donations can be made directly to The Family Resource Network by calling (609) 392-4900, by mailing a check to The Family Resource Network’s administrative office at 1 AAA Drive, Suite 203, Trenton, NJ 08691 or by donating online through our donation site. Please ask friends and family members to indicate that their donation is in honor of your wedding/anniversary/birthday.

Will The Family Resource Network staff be able to help me organize my third-party fundraising event?

Unfortunately, we don’t have the resources to assist all third-party fundraising events, as The Family Resource Network staff work year-round in support of our community-wide events such as the annual EFNJ North Golf Classic, AFSNJ Seaside Soiree and Walk for a Brighter Tomorrow.

Can The Family Resource Network assist in covering any costs associated with my event?

Unfortunately, The Family Resource Network does not have the funds to pay any costs associated with third-party events.
