The 34th Annual Celebration of Giving is here
Children's Fund's 34th Annual Celebration of Giving is here, running from November 28 - December 16, 2022. This is your opportunity to show a child that they are cared for during this holiday season. 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.
Wishing you all very happy holidays.

Ways to Give
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 Children's Fund at 909.379.0000.

Gift Drop-off Location
1140 E. Cooley Ave. | San Bernardino, CA
From Cooley Ave., enter the 4th driveway on the right. We are behind the building to the right. Look for the loading dock and Children's Fund banner.
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.
Also, be sure to shop with Amazon Smile and the AmazonSmile Foundation will donate 0.5% of the purchase price from your eligible smile.amazon.com purchases to us when you select "Children's Fund Incorporated" as your charity of choice.
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.
