Mission and Work

Mission

MAKING CHANGE, formally known as ficah, was incorporated on july 23, 1985, for the purpose of soliciting contributions from corporate and private sources within the retail industry to fund self-help community development projects throughout the united states.

Description

MAKING CHANGE is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that promotes hunger relief, human dignity, wellness, and self-sufficient communities. We do this by enabling our retail partners to solicit donations from their shoppers to provide support of non-profit agencies (fully vetted by MAKING CHANGE as a legitimate 501(c)(3) prior to disbursement of funding) whose missions are to promote self-sufficiency within the communities our retail partners serve. We facilitate the collection of these donations via the development of in-store point-of-purchase materials (located at the check stand) that allows shoppers (the donors) to contribute funds as they complete their in-store purchases.
