I know first hand how awesome FYF is! In 2007 I was blessed with two beautiful twin boys born with a horrific disease known as EB. I was at the end of my rope and losing hope that I would be able to get my babies to the best physicians for their condition. Then along came FYF. They are my living angels. Some how, some way, they found out about my situation and got us out of NJ and to California to Stanford University. Although no miracle was found, I was able to get the piece of mind knowing that I did everything possible to save them. My two short months with Kyle and Zack are so precious to me. I cannot find the words, nor do I think there is any, to express my sincere gratitude to Steve Young and his amazing team and angels (Michele to this day keeps in touch with us which means so much to me)!!! During our visit to California, Steve Young let us stay in his home, supplied us with experienced help to educate us on how to care for my sons. Knowing how stressed we were, he even gave my husband and I a few hours to go out on a date, something we had not done in a very long time. I thank God everynight for bringing them to me!!!

Great partners and hosts with their golf and events, which were a blast. They came to the Museum of Natural Curiosity for a special private event and guests had a wonderful time. Very organized, friendly and on the lookout to appreciate and involve donors.

Over the years, Forever Young Foundation has become our go-to charity in terms of helping make a meaningful difference in the lives of children around the world. Steve, Barb, Sterling, Michelle and the rest of the FYF team do an absolutely superb job of helping children with physical and mental disabilities, as well as educational needs, through the FYF Family of Charities, which offers depth and breadth of service to families and children with unique needs. I cannot think of a charitable organization that is more deserving of our collective support, so I encourage you to support FYF by giving generously.

As an educator and my husband as mental health professional, we are thrilled about children having such a wonderful outlet at Sophie's Place with music! Not only creative and innovative but especially reaching the heart of children through music expression, soulful healing and pure JOY in the midst of difficult health issues. I highly recommend all that Forever Young Foundation stands for, creates and supports!

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 really cannot say enough for the Forever Young Foundation. They are the most professionally run foundation I work with and they do amazing things for the children in our community. Their commitment to the Taylor Family Foundation is amazing. Steve and Barbara should be proud of the team they have assembled and the change they spearhead in the community. I am excitied to help ANY I hear from them.

When I consider donating to a charitable organization, I first look for high fundraising efficiency and low administrative expenses. The Forever Young Foundation meets these key criteria, largely due to the generous underwriting by Steve and Barb Young.

Next, I look at the success of the underlying programs to ensure that they are effective at solving problems and improving lives. I have seen up close how the programs Forever Young supports improve children's lives.

Last, donating to Forever Young is like joining an exceptional family, where you associate with other donors and a dedicated staff that are like minded in helping others. The Foundation is so well run by such high integrity people - everyone should seriously consider Forever Young in their giving profile.

It is an honor to write a review for The Forever Young Foundation. My husband and I have been involved with the Foundation for almost 10 years now. We continue to be impressed with the communication and updates we recieve from the foundation regarding where all the money is being donated, and how many children are being served and blessed. It is fascinating to me to see how the foundation started out in the bay area, continued on to Arizona, and now have gone International. Can't say enough about the amazing lives they are touching over in Africa daily. The Forever Young Foundation is a solid and unique group of dedicated people working for a great cause that benefits many. They are truly a gift.
