"Thank you" notes

The Ashland Emergency Fund is dedicated to sending out personalized thank you's to every person who makes a charitable donation, big or small. If you are interesting in writing short, handwritten notes to our donors as an expression of our gratitude, please contact John.

Beanie Babies

The AEF loves to bring raffles to local businesses in town as a mode of fundraising and we are constantly seeking out beanie babies as a part of our beanie baby raffles. We are constantly accepting beanie baby donations so if you have any you'd like to donate or you are interested in finding places to collect them for us please contact Bill

AEF fund drives

Each year the AEF holds year-end drives to insure that we can continue to meet the needs of our friends and neighbors. The drive is timed for the holiday season, when the impact of economic hardship can be particularly difficult. This year-end drive must grow in scope. In addition, the AEF Board has realized that we must extend fund-raising over a greater part of the year than only the holiday season. The AEF always needs more volunteers to make these fund drives successful.

Please contact us for more information.

Grant writing

We are looking for any individuals who are interested in assisting our current Grant Writer to ensure more opportunities for the people of Ashland. This may include filling out paperwork, some brief technical writing and possibly researching further grant opportunities for The Ashland Emergency Fund. Please contact John if you are interested.
