Dedicated Dads - Father's Day Fundraiser

Promotes committed fatherhood by educating dads in child development and challenging dads to become positive forces within their family and community.

Community-Baton Rouge, Louisiana, United States


This campaign is raising funds on behalf of Family Road Of Greater Baton Rouge Inc, a verified nonprofit. The campaign does not necessarily reflect the views of the nonprofit or have any formal association with it. All contributions are considered unrestricted gifts and can't be specified for any particular purpose.
Family Road of Greater Baton Rouge, a 501c3 non-profit organization, is seeking your help to continue a critical program in our community.

For the last 6 years, the Dedicated Dads fatherhood program has promoted responsible, committed fatherhood by educating dads in child development and promoting strong relationships, and by training dads to better their socio-economic status, and challenging them to become positive forces within their family and community.

Last year, the Dedicated Dads program directly helped 472 dads in the greater Baton Rouge community.

Unfortunately, because of grant and budget shortfalls, the funding for this program runs out at the end of June 2013, and without your help, the program will end.

The program costs approximately $200 per dad that participates. Please consider adopting a dad for that amount or any amount that helps make a difference.

Help make it happen for the team! Contribute to Dedicated Dads - Father's Day Fundraiser. CONTRIBUTE NOW!
