Nourishing Communities

Marcia Wright-Soika,
Executive Director of FamilyWorks


Putting a Bold New Vision Within Reach

During the summer of 2020, I joined FamilyWorks at a time of tremendous change. We were transitioning from a founding executive director to only the second one we’ve ever had. We were just at the end of a strategic plan when the world around us changed overnight with a global pandemic, and we saw the sharpest increase we have ever experienced of families in need of our services, especially basic needs.

FamilyWorks needs our closest donor community alongside us from the beginning as we embark on this campaign together. Leadership gifts are critical to funding early work, inspiring gifts from others, and building momentum for fundraising.


An unrestricted gift to the Nourishing Communities campaign funds every element of the vision and empowers the leadership to prioritize your funds to the highest and best use.

Because these major facilities and program investments will take 2-3 years to complete, we invite you to consider the full amount you can commit to giving over this time period, which allows you flexibility while giving us confidence in our plan.

In addition to cash, it is often a good financial strategy to give gifts of appreciated stock, direct an IRA charitable distribution, or leverage a donor advised fund or corporate match. Our professional staff is able to explore these options with you to maximize your impact.


With early support from public funds and lead donors, we have already commenced construction and building. Right now, funds are critically needed to ensure our vision is completed.

If you are our neighbor and supporter, share in our vision for this community and invest in establishing these facilities and programs that will transform lives for decades to come. 


“I love volunteering at the food bank. It is my happy place. I look forward to my volunteer days every week. It grounds me in this chaotic time. I’ve just been so proud to serve on the board and as a volunteer in a place that is totally focused on helping people.”
