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 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.

My country is in need of help in many ways, but most of all it is the children that should be cared for, in order to have and be able to create a better future. Child Foundation is the only valid and active foundation I know. In the recent earth quake, we were desperately looking for a way to send a small help to Iran, and it was only through this foundation that we could easily do it. I sincerely thank all its philanthropists and benefactors.

Education for underprivileged kids is the BEST thing anyone can give them. So, when I heard about what Child Foundation was doing to allow these young minds to open up and flourish, That was the moment I knew I wanted to be a supporter of it. One of the most fulfilling achievements in my life is to help these young people. Keep it up.

How can we make a better country to live? or make a better world to live?
We've been blessed to be supported by our family to grow up, being educated and make a comfortable life! What if we didn't have any support? What if we weren't born in a good environment?!
I can't thank enough to this professional and wonderful organization, for helping those beautiful blossoms turn into flowers.
I've supported a lovely boy since 5 years ago and see how he is getting a better person. I want him to feel proud of what he is becoming. One day, those small kids will make a significant impact in future, but without our support - it's all about suffering!
Child Foundation is one of the most trustable organization. Support it!!

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.
