Children First Foundation

Make a One-Time Donation

Please consider making a one-time donation and help The Children First Foundation continue to tear down the barriers to a quality education for homeless and underprivileged children in Arizona.


Monthly giving is an easy, efficient and tax-deductible way to make a difference in helping underserved and impoverished children reach their personal best through education.


The Ambassador Circle are generous supporters who make a monetary gift of $1,000 or more annually.

The Ambassador Circle Benefits:

  • Listing on childrensfirstfoundation.org
  • Invitation to attend exclusive events
  • Ambassador Circle newsletters


Honor those individuals who currently touch your life. Memorialize those that have passed, or give a meaningful birthday gift that touches the life of a child. Choose to send a donation in Memorial, Honor, or as a gift and help drive underprivileged children to success.


The Children First Foundation supports children that live at or below the poverty line and are often homeless. We are always accepting in-kind donations for our students and their families to help them succeed both in and outside of the classroom. Our families are always in need of hygiene products, clothing for our students, food and beverages, household cleaning items, healthcare products and school supplies.

  • Matching Gift

Did you know many companies offer a matching gift program to encourage philanthropy among their employees? Some companies will even match to spouses and retirees. If your company participates in a matching gift program, you may be able to double, or even triple, the impact of your gift! Contributions of any amount will enable us to help children at or below the poverty line receive the same education that other children receive. Please check with your employer to see if they participate in a matching gift program. If your company does participate in a matching gift program and you’re interested in enhancing your contribution, please contact admin@childrensfirstfoundation.org for more information.

  • Workplace Giving

Did you know that you can donate to the Children First Foundation seamlessly through payroll deductions? And since companies often match employee contributions, workplace giving provides you with the opportunity to directly influence your company's philanthropic endeavors. For more information, please contact admin@childrensfirstfoundation.org.
