Florida Family Association is a national organization that is made up of thousands of supporters across America who share in the same goal of defending American values and improving America's moral environment. These supporters send more than one million emails every month to Corporate America officials associated with issues posted on this web site. Florida Family Association's accomplishments are a direct result of the dedicated people across the country who support the efforts of this organization.
Florida Family Association's mission statement in our IRS approved 501C3 application is to: Educate people on what they can do to defend, protect and promote traditional, biblical values.
Florida Family Association, Inc. is incorporated in the State of Florida as a non-profit corporation. Florida Family Association is a tax-exempt 501C3 corporation under the Internal Revenue Service Code. Contributions made to Florida Family Association are tax deductible and confidential.
Florida Family Association is not an affiliate or subsidiary of any other group. It is an independent organization with tens of thousands of supporters outside of Florida.
Operations and Finance
Florida Family Association chooses to pay independent contractors to perform several routine tasks that are technically demanding, ever changing and more costly to accomplish in house with employees. The relevant services include direct mail, mail processing, web design, internet software, web security, bulk email, email support, communications and custom television monitoring software. The cost for these services represent most of the financial statement line item titled Printing, Publications and Projects in Florida Family Association’s IRS Form 990. Using independent contractors provides cost saving expertise and minimizes the need for staff. This approach saves valuable resources and time that can be better spent toward important projects and increasing online participation.
Florida Family Association may reformalize some staff positions in the future. However, for now all energies are focused on developing and executing important projects and increasing the number of supporters who join our campaigns.
