*Sponsor registration is now closed for for the 2014 Program*

   So far we have matched 2,700 individuals with generous sponsors like you, but can still use your help!

While we are no longer matching sponsors with specific families, you can still help by participating in our Emergency Gift program by donating gift cards or making a cash donation to the program.

Sponsor A Family MN is a 501c3 organization.


Sponsor A Family MN is a non-denominational nonprofit organization that matches families in need with Sponsors who anonymously shop for them for the holidays.

All "in need" families are pre-approved by qualified pre-selected case managers, and truly need your help.  Sponsors can be Individuals, Businesses, Community organizations, Churches, Religious Organizations or anyone who wants to help.

 So how does it work?

Each year selected case managers review their clients and pre-approve participation in the program.  The clients fill out a "wish list" of 2-3 needed items, and are matched with kind-hearted Sponsors who shop for them for their needs.  The second week of December Sponsors drop their gifts at our warehouse location where they are picked up by grateful families the following weekend.  The entire program is anonymous, providing the receiving families with the dignity they deserve.

Interested in helping? There are several ways to participate in the 2014 program.

*Sponsor A Specific family (The Core of the Program)

Complete the form on our Registration page and we will contact you mid November with the wishlist of the family you have been matched with. We will also provide you with Giving Guidelines along with the dates and directions for dropping off your gifts.

*Provide help for late registering families and emergencies (Critical to the program)

Purchase generic gifts, provide gift cards, or make a financial donation to the program which will be used for last minute families that do not get matched with  specific sponsors. Sponsor A Family MN is a 501c3 and all donations are fully tax deductible. If you are interested in helping by making a donation, it can be sent to: Sponsor A Family MN, PO Box 582793, Mpls MN 55458

* Volunteer (The fun and fellowship of the program)

Sponsor A Family MN is run entirely by volunteers and your suport is welcome. We have opportunities in our office Oct- Nov and at the warehouse during gift distribution In December. For further information please visit the Volunteer page on our website. (Volunteer registration is now closed for 2014)
