First Chance Foundation is an extraordinary organization! They collect toiletries and school supplies to provide to kids in need. These basic items are so important but often overlooked because they aren't "fun" to donate, but that doesn't stop First Chance! My favorite thing that First Chance Foundation does is throwing birthday parties for kids who otherwise would do without. They even tailor it to the child's (or teen's) taste in food, colors, and cake theme! First Chance Foundation also supports other child-focused nonprofits. They really have a far reach! Anyone who supports First Chance Foundation can be confident that his/her donation will really make a difference!

I am the director of a non-profit that houses 38 children in fostercare. For years, First Chance Foundation has come along beside our organization to provide unmet needs to our children. This year they have decided to provide a birthday party and gifts for each child on our campus. This is simply something that our children have NEVER experienced. And as if that wasn't enough, FCF has decided to completely renovate our recreation room so that the children have a place to go and relax and take a break from their daily routine. We are blessed beyond words to have FCF as our community partner!!

The First Chance Foundation is a wonderful organization doing great work to support children in need and serve the community. For the past few years, the leaders of FCF have kindly reached out to our organization in meaningful ways, including care packages to mothers and babies in need, as well as monetary support of our cause. Especially as a small non-profit organization with limited resources, we have been honored by the generosity and good example of the First Chance Foundation.

The First Chance Foundation is a phenomenal organization doing great work to better the community. They are compassionate and generous in their support of children in need. Year after year the Foundation has stepped up to help the abused, abandoned and homeless kids we serve. We could not do what we do without their ongoing, dedicated support.

The time you give to the children far outweighs our efforts, but what we do is to help you make their lives and your job a little easier. :) The cohesiveness we have with organizations such as yours makes the time we put into giving and assisting all worth it! Thank you for being on the front-line.

First Chance Foundation is a crucial resource for children in need in our community. As a leader in a non-profit that First Chance Foundation helps, I can honestly say they go above and beyond to serve. If we need something for our kids (abused, abandoned and neglected youth), they find a way to get it for us. First Chance Foundation is a top notch, well run foundation that follows their Mission with integrity.

We go above and beyond to help those that are on the frontline! Our job is easy, we just want to do our best to help make your job easier...though for you and the others on the frontline, it will truly never be easy. Thank you for the kind words and may we continue to have supporters that allow us to go above and beyond.
