Reviews for Forever Young Foundation

Rating: 5 stars  

I have to say of all of the charities with which I have been involved over the years (dozens), the Forever Young Foundation ranks #1. I deeply appreciate their initiative in the creation of Forever Young Zones in Hospitals around the country. They have blessed the lives of many, many children. Recently, they have gotten involved in Music therapy with Sophie's place . . . which is magical in its impact on the sick and the needy. They have even reached out globally to places like Ghana to provide support and encouragement there.

In addition, to their numerous charitable activities, the Forever Young foundation is EXTREMELY WELL RUN. Sterling Tanner is an outstanding leader. His team includes Michelle Knox and Stephanie Nath- two of the most responsive, caring and capable people I know.

I would not hesitate to recommend this outstanding organization.

The Forever Young Foundation is a fantastic organization! Steve Young as the Founder, and his beautiful wife Barb, are personally involved and highly motivated to change and improve the lives of thousands. Sterling Tanner and team who run the Forever Young Foundation on a day to day basis are people of highest integrity and dedication. I cannot give a higher recommendation to any charitable entity than I would give to the Forever Young Foundation.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Forever Young zones, the Snowbird diabled skiers program, the Anasazi Foundation, the Forever Young golf tourney fund-raisers . . .

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

I just need to do more to help this fine group . . .

I am beyond impressed with Forever Young Foundation. They continue to significantly impact lives on a daily basis both domestically and internationally. Their events are beyond first class. I have had the great fortune of participating in a number of their events and can say with confidence that very single guest in attendance is treated like a Hall of Famer. However, of all the foundation's great attributes, the most impressive aspect is how efficient and lean the foundation is run. The money that's donated goes directly to the end users. In addition, they continue to innovate and be on the cutting edge of therapy and rehabilitation through their efforts with Sophie's Place. They are among the best "celebrity" charities I have ever worked with.

Forever Young is a professionally run philanthropic organization that strives to make a difference in children's lives and the communities they serve. Steve and Barb Young are actively involved in the work being done through Forever Young Foundation (FYF) and continue to make certain they operate in an efficient manner ensuring the maximum amount of funds raised are directed toward those in need. I continue to be impressed with their passion and enthusiasm.
