Financial Resources FCU Foundation 2020 Charity Gala Event


In an effort to limit the spreading of the COVID-19 virus, we are rescheduling our Annual Foundation Gala Event to a later date this year. We appreciate your understanding during this time, and if any questions arise please reach out to Ann at We will keep you informed on details as they are decided upon and wish you all good health and to stay safe.

Proceeds from this year’s event will benefit two charities:

POAC Autism Services

  • POAC is dedicated to helping children and adults with autism achieve their fullest potential by providing quality training, support and recreation.
  • POAC provides training for parents and educators; recreational and support services to children and adults with autism and their families; and training for police and first responders which, we are proud to say, has saved the lives of children with autism all over New Jersey.
  • Additionally, POAC supports ongoing quality research and promotes legislative issues that impact those with autism and their families. POAC is meeting the needs of those with autism in a very real way every day

CASA of Somerset, Hunterdon, and Warren

  • CASA SHaW’s mission is to provide well-trained volunteer advocates for children living in foster care in our community. Our advocates identify needs and make best interest recommendations to the court with the goal of moving these children to safe, loving, and permanent homes. CASA SHaW is committed to advocating for these children both individually and through community outreach and education on the issues of child abuse and neglect, giving children the best opportunity to thrive.

If interested in purchasing tickets, or giving a donation, please contact Ann by email or phone (908) 253-6446.
