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.

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 started donating to childfoundation 5 years ago and am supporting one child currently. They are reliable, functional and honest. They allowed me to talk with the child I am supporting while a professional social worker was present. I have verified their works several times.

In the memory of my precious Iranian wife, Mariam, I sponsor children through the foundation. I cannot describe the joy it has given to me to see that her donations are directly benefiting the children in her home country. I can think of no better way to help the children that are the future of us all. Thank you.

I had the honor of serving as a volunteer for Child Foundation’s Nowruz celebration this year in March. The people who work together to run this organization are incredibly passionate, kind hearted, and trusting. They show endless dedication towards gaining funds to contribute towards providing a better quality of life and education that the youth in Iran deserve.

The passion within all members of Child Foundation is truly contagious. It was a pleasure volunteering for them and I look forward to participating in more volunteer work for this organization in the near future.

I have had the opportunity of sponsoring a child and volunteering for Child Foundation for the past year. Working as a volunteer, I have become closer to the leading team and had the chance to work with all the dedicated and sincere members. Child Foundation is making a true difference not only for the future of each and every child that has been helped, but for all the generations that follow them.

My husband and I have been a donor to two children in Iran. I really enjoy the reports that we receive about there classes and a little about there social issues. Being a nurse, I understand that the needs are very great for young people that don't have access to proper education due to family circumstances. Thank you for the work you do for these children.

Had the honor of serving Child Foundation as a volunteer (in Portland); even though briefly, but enough time to know some wonderful and devoted staff behind the scenes who are running this organization that serves an invaluable and well-needed cause...Child Foundation is the network of goodness.
