Ways to Give


Gift Donations & Toy Drives

Our Celebration of Giving Toy Drive is a chance for us to show a child that someone cares for them. A gift can mean the world to a child and nurture their hope so that they can continue to dream of a brighter future.

Each year, many local organizations conduct toy drives for our Celebration of Giving. Businesses, schools, clubs, churches, etc. are encouraged to arrange a toy drive. Below, you can find a variety of printable collateral for organizations to begin their toy drive in our Celebration of Giving Toolkit, including flyers, posters, tags, and more.

If you are interested in starting a toy drive in support of our Celebration of Giving, please contact Beth Spalding at for any assistance.

Monday-Thursday from 9am-2pm

Shop our Amazon Wishlists

Make shopping for toys for the children easy by purchasing from Amazon and shipping directly to us.  It's a safe alternative to shopping in person during the COVID-19 pandemic. 


Be sure to select "This is a Gift" when purchasing and in the "gift tag" please provide us with your name and address.  Otherwise, we have no way of knowing who shipped us the gifts and we won't know who to thank. 


Please ship to Children's Fund, 348 W. Hospitality Lane, #110, San Bernardino, CA 92408.


Make a Monetary Donation

Sometimes, providing cash is just the easiest option.  With the partnerships Children's Fund has with many retail outlets, we are able to stretch your monetary donations.  No gift is too small. 


Inspire a child with a cash gift as little as $10—a gift of $500 will provide gift cards for 20 teens — the sky is the limit!


Make a donation using the form below, or send a check to our office.  


Children's Fund provides a gift card to every foster youth in San Bernardino County ages 13-19.  This amounts to an expense of over $40,000 each year.   You could help us put a smile on a teen's face by providing $25 gift cards to Target or Walmart. 


Please ship gift cards or checks to Children's Fund, 348 W. Hospitality Lane, #110, San Bernardino, CA 92408.

​On behalf of the children we serve – THANK YOU for your generous act of kindness this holiday season!

Children's Fund has been collecting holiday gifts for vulnerable children for over 35 years!  Because of your generous donations, we gave over 44,480 gifts to children in our local communities last year, showing them that we care and they were not forgotten.
