If making life better for Florida’s abused, abandoned and neglected children is not already on your charitable priority list, consider Florida’s Children First. Thanks to the unwavering support of child advocates and supporters statewide, we’ve been able to help some of the 20,000 children in foster care who depend Florida’s Children First to make improvements in the system of care that make their lives better.
You can read here about our most recent accomplishments. But we need your help to continue our good work. Your donation to Florida’s Children First helps children who have been abused or neglected or abandoned, and your money is used wisely. Instead of asking you for a donation today, we are asking that you plan for the future and put Florida’s Children First in your 2015 Charitable Giving Budget.
There are three things that set us apart from the rest:
1. Our work is informed by the voice of the youth – listening to and promoting our youth advocacy organization, Florida Youth SHINE (current and former foster youth).
2. We are INDEPENDENT – take no federal or state funding so that we remain objective and credible.
3. With our partnership with Florida Youth SHINE and professionals across Florida, we get RESULTS. We’ve helped get laws enacted, raised at-risk kids’ voices in professional publications, provided statewide training in child welfare, and served as a resource for TV/Radio/Newspapers in child welfare issues.
It is that time of year that many corporations or organizations decide what charities are worthy of contributions in the coming year. Instead of asking you for a donation today, we are asking that you plan for the future and put Florida’s Children First in your 2015 Charitable Giving Budget.
If you would like to help children in care today, we sincerely appreciate your contribution and pledge to help as many children as possible with your gift.
