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!

The Forever Young Foundation is exemplary with their philanthropy efforts. They put a tremendous amount of thought and effort in finding the most impactful ways to touch the lives of children throughout the world. I've been impressed over and over throughout the years as I see and hear of the meaningful ways my personal donations are being utilized. They are all class act.

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.

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 . . .

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.
