Our Goal

To provide a responsive and direct resource to children in need so that they have the opportunity to achieve their greatest potential. As responsible stewards, CTCF has raised close to $2 million as a result of the generosity of so many.

Make a Donation

To make a gift in memory of a loved one or to HONOR SOMEONE SPECIAL, please include the name of the person you wish to honor, your own name, address and the name and address of the person we should notify of your gesture.

Each year we sponsor multiple events with all proceeds going to our beneficiaries.

We are Unique

Unlike many non-profit organizations, CTCF is 100% volunteer. That means no salaries, no rent for offices. We are wholly managed by dedicated volunteers who enthusiastically donate their time to help children.

How YOU can help:

Please let us know your interest or talent that you are willing to share with us. Any amount of time, in-kind donation or corporate support that you can give is of great value to the success of Cherish the Children. To name a few: Social media/Communications; Data Entry/Administration; Corporate Sponsorship; Raffle/Auction Donor Solicitation. Email us: info@ctchildren.org
