Supporting Children and Families

Children's Home Foundation is a separate 501(c)(3) charitable organization that was established in 1982 for the purpose of supporting the programs of Children's Home Society in perpetuity. The Foundation raises financial and gift-in-kind resources for operating support, facility needs, and long-term sustainability. This is done through a variety of fundraising events and activities, including building endowment funds through immediate gifts and estate gifts. It also promotes community awareness of the work of Children's Home Society through publications, special events, media resources, campus tours, and speaking opportunities. 

Without the fundraising efforts of the Foundation, the critical services provided by Children's Home Society for women, children, and families would not be possible.
