Below, you can find details about giving, as well as various materials to print out, including our gift tags, flyers, and more.

Together, we can provide gifts to foster and other vulnerable youth in our community.

ways to give

1.

Gift Donations

Children's Fund will provide you with downloadable gift tags with age-appropriate gift ideas.  Email the tags at work, to friends, or even display them on your holiday tree.  Ask your family, co-workers, organization, or teams you have joined to get into the spirit of giving.  Or, have a Virtual Holiday Party and ask for gift donations, giving hope for brighter tomorrows. To learn more or request printed posters, contact Shari at shari@childrensfund.org. Please note below the reduced days and hours for toy donation drop-off this year.

2.

shop our amazon wish lists​

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 yellow donate button above (be sure to note in the comment box that your donation is for the Celebration of Giving Toy Drive 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!
