Never have we had the opportunity to work with an organization that is filled with such good will and integrity. We know that our donations get to where they need to go and that kids are helped.
We couldn't imagine a better cause or better people leading it.

Without our wonderful donors (like you) we would not be able to make a difference in children's lives. We try our best to make sure donations are put towards things that benefit the children and their future. Which is why we work with reputable organizations when assisting those in need. Thanks for the very kind words!

My donations to First Chance Foundation have been direct or through the Birdies For Charity program in conjunction with the PGA. It has been heartwarming and reassuring to know and to see donations are making such a positive impact in the community. The work of First Chance Foundation is enhanced by the thoughtfulness, planning skill and commitment demonstrated in every project. The results can be seen in the smiles on children's faces and the joy shining forth from their eyes. What a great reward for a job well done.

It's often daunting when donating to non profits where you hope to see improvement in the world. This is a program I'm confident in, and feel they're completely honest within the scope of all operations. I was made aware of their hard work and dedication, and the children they helped, as a result of my donation and that's important in order to feel like you've made a sound choice. I have no doubt my donation was used wisely and that 100% of it benefited the children they serve. I'm honored to be able to give to this organization.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Honesty is the most important thing to me when I consider donating. For that reason, I don't see any need for improvement. I believe this is a very honest organization.
