Reaching out: FMCA's charitable tradition

FMCA offers a full line of member benefits to enhance the motorhoming lifestyle. But perhaps the greatest benefits are the opportunities that FMCA and motorhoming create to help others.

Ongoing support

Throughout the year, many FMCA members contribute to the association’s Round Up campaign. Members are invited to "round up" their membership dues and/or make a donation to one or more of these organizations.

  • Habitat for Humanity International
  • The National Center on Family Homelessness
  • ProLiteracy Worldwide
  • Good Will-Hinckley Homes for Boys and Girls

A form appears monthly in each issue of Family Motor Coaching magazine, making it easy to contribute to these programs, in FMCA’s name. To find the form, look for “Round-Up Contributors” on the contents page in the magazine, or “FMCA Round Up Program” in the Advertising Index.

Chapters’ outpouring

FMCA has more than 500 chapters, or subgroups, throughout North America. In innumerable ways, many of them organize and participate in special charitable projects year-round. They’ve coordinated fund-raisers for burns victims, dressed as clowns to cheer hospital patients, held auctions to benefit the American Diabetes Association, collected beverage can tabs so kids with special needs can attend camp.

In addition, several hundred FMCA members have sponsored a brick or a granite stone to help fund construction of a new middle school at the Good Will-Hinckley Homes for Boys and Girls (site of FMCA’s founding in 1963) in Hinckley, Maine.

Convention legacy

FMCA members are fondly remembered for their charitable efforts in towns where its international conventions are held. Blood drives, quilt donations, eyeglass collection, and donations to local charities are some of the ways convention attendees have helped others before, during or after the confab.

FMCA members place great value on family and have chosen to help families in need whenever possible. It’s no accident that “family” is the first word in Family Motor Coach Association.
