Fireside Collective


A community of people committed to blessing friends and strangers in need.

We love because He first loved us.
1 John 4:19

Fireside Collective is a non-profit vehicle for anonymous giving in Rochester, NY, combining the resources of many to bless others.  The organization was formed and is managed by 5 friends.

We often become aware of people in need, either of financial or physical assistance. Fireside Collective provides a focused approach to meeting these needs locally, to be a tunnel through which the love, joy, and generosity of Jesus Christ can flow into the greater Rochester area.
