ahfas fundraising letterATLANTIC HIGHLANDS, NJ – The Atlantic Highlands First Aid & Safety Squad’s annual fund drive is underway and for the first time ever residents have an option to donate online. Using a “donate” button on the Squad’s web site – www.ahfirstaid.org – residents can save themselves the cost of a stamp and quickly make a tax-deductible donation.

The all-volunteer emergency services organization relies on generous donations from residents and the borough to operate. Indeed, nearly half of the AHFAS annual operating budget is derived from the annual fund drive letter, which should have recently arrived in local mailboxes.

Now, however, residents wishing to use a credit or debit card to make their payment can visit the AHFAS website for a simple, instant transaction. Adding the secure, online donation system to the process stems from resident requests to use credit cards to show their support of the squad.

Every dollar raised during this direct outreach goes to purchasing medical supplies, to maintain our response equipment and to provide training so that our members are trained to the highest standards. Through the first three months of the year, the Squad had responded to 150 calls and is on track to hit 600 before year’s end.

The AHFAS is a 501c3 non-profit organization so there are a variety of ways in which residents can demonstrate their support, including the annual fund drive, or by considering planned gifts, family trusts, corporate donations and work-place matching programs.
