Organize A Fundraising Event

A Third-Party Fundraising event is a fundraising activity (beyond sharing the NFSB donation link) being run or hosted by a group or individual, where the NFSB has no fiduciary responsibilities and little or no staff involvement.

Nutley Family Service Bureau, Inc. (NFSB) is extremely grateful to the people and organizations that wish to organize events to support our mission to strengthen the emotional and social well-being of individuals and families through affordable mental health counseling and social service programs.


To help ensure the success of your event, we have developed the following Third-Party Fundraising Event Guidelines. NOTE: that the more lead-time that is given for the event, the better we can support the effort. 6 weeks prior is optimal.

We encourage questions regarding fundraising events. Please contact our Executive Director, Katherine Carmichael at 973-542-8276 Ext. 200 or Thank you for your interest in making Nutley Family Service Bureau the beneficiary of your fundraising efforts!
