CFC Supporters | Other Partnerships and Organizations
Children for Children is sustained by its friends - individuals, families, funds, foundations and corporations who support its mission to endow the next generation with a sense of responsibility for others and encourage them to participate in the greater community.
Many of CFC’s friends have children who participate in CFC Programs and want to contribute something more. Some are relatives or friends who wish to commemorate a child's milestone event or accomplishment; some want to support NYC schools, but would not know where to begin on their own. Others are eager to support the CFC mission.
