Nonprofit Overview

Causes: Children & Youth, Children & Youth Services, Gift Distribution, Human Services

Mission: To help children in need, who have been identified as high achievers, remain in school.

Results: Child Foundation has helped over 15,000 children to change their life. Presently, Child Foundation supports 9,000 children to be able to continue their education through its unique sponsorship program. This year, 2750 of our students got accepted into universities in Iran and 11 of our Afghan students were accepted by Afghanistan universities.

Programs: Iran: child foundation supports disadvantaged children in iran who need assistance in order to stay in school. The children and their families are identified by a social service agency in iran, refah koodak, and then referred to child foundation. Because of the us sanctions against iran, most support was provided in the form of bulk food, which is distributed to the children's families. As sanctions are lifted or licenses are granted by us ofac (us office of foreign asset control), cash assistance is provided as well. In the fiscal year ended may 31, 2014, child foundation received permission to provide $500,000 in cash; prior to the end of the fiscal year, $410,000 had reached iran and the remaining $90,000 was in process. The number of children currently receiving support is about 3,000.

afghanistan: child foundation matches supporters in the usa and other countries with disadvantaged children in afghanistan who need assistance in order to stay in school. Cf also supports the programs of future for afghan children, which runs a computer school and theater camp, as well as a program for thalassemia awareness and support.

indonesia: support is provided to needy children and enables them to continue their eduction. About half of the children are in elementary and middle school, and the other half are in high school.

usa: us staff matches sponsors and donors from the us and many other countries with children needing assistance and supports these relationships by facilitating communication between sponsors and children. They also ensure that pledges made are collected and forwarded overseas, and that sponsors are informed twice a year of their sponsorees' progress in school.

I have been supporting a child since 2012 and this organization is doing great. I love the child six-month reports that they send to me. :)

My husband and I have been donating to Child Foundation for 3 years now. We were given a girl in Afghanistan to support. We were given details about her family, herself, their living conditions and her school achievements along with pictures. When I have asked for information about the extra money I have sent for her to see a doctor and coal for the family for the winter, I have received prompt answers as to the results of the extra donations. I like for our money to go directly to whom we are supporting and that is the situation with Child Foundation. I think this is an excellent way for us to help educate those who cannot do it on their own. To me education is the fastest way to peace and understanding and this organization works towards that goal.

I've been with them for about 8 years now and regardless of all the limitation and challenges they faced due to the sanctions they did a great job on relieving the pain of many families in many countries. I and my wife sponsored 6 children from the childhood time and by now one of them is married and the other on is in university and the rest have a chance to continue their studies.

Education is such an important eliminator of poverty. Child Foundation far exceeded our expectations in helping us give back to those children who want to go to school but due to lack of funds, can't. We believe Child Foundation is changing the world one child at a time!

I encourage everyone to get involved with this organization and help a child in need. It's been one of the best decisions I made years ago and I hope that more and more people start sponsoring kids to give them the life and opportunities that our parents were able to give us.

My wife and I have been sponsoring a few different children through Child Foundation over the past couple of decades. They have always been professional and courteous to us. I can measure their good work through the reports we receive from the case workers and the letters we get from the child through them. We recommend Child Foundation.
