FMCA offers a full line of member benefits to enhance the motorhome lifestyle. But perhaps the greatest benefits are the opportunities that FMCA and motorhoming create to help others.
Throughout the year, many FMCA motorhome owners contribute to the association’s Round Up campaign. Motorhomers 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
Motorhomers can fill out the form that appeares monthly in each issue of Family Motor Coaching magazine. This makes it easy for motorhome owners 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.
Many of FMCA's more than 500 motorhoming chapters organize and participate in special charitable projects year-round. These motorhomers have 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 motorhome enthusiasts 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.
FMCA's motorhome owners are also fondly remembered for their charitable efforts in towns where its international conventions are held. Motorhomers have participated in blood drives, made quilt donations, donated eyeglasses, and supported local charities. These are just some of the ways motorhome convention attendees have helped others before, during or after the motorhome showcase.
FMCA is one big motorhoming family and have chosen to help other families in need, whenever possible. It’s no accident that “family” is the first word in Family Motor Coach Association.
