Fund Their Future: Grants for children in need

March 19, 2013

As Kids First celebrates its 10th anniversary, our non-profit foundation introduces a new program that will “fund the future” of children in need around the world. Kids First Fund Their Future Awards is a grant program that allows members of the Cultural Care community – host families, au pairs, local representatives both in the U.S. and in our sending countries, and staff in all Cultural Care offices – to request funds for underprivileged children. By providing grants to recommended organizations, Cultural Care Kids First Foundation hopes to reach more children, more Cultural Care community members, and more corners of the world in fulfilling our mission of making a difference in the lives of children.

Application deadline approaching

Grant applications for Fund Their Future Awards are accepted year-round and reviewed on a quarterly basis. The next deadline is April 15th. We already have some compelling grant applications, but are looking for more!

To be eligible for a Kids First “Fund Their Future” award, the organization should benefit a group of children, be a human services charity providing direct services to children in need, and operate in a country where Cultural Care Au Pair, or our parent company, EF, has an office. The donation grant should be used for a specific project and make a long-term difference in the lives of the children.

Is there a children’s organization that is special to you that would benefit from a Kids First Fund Their Future grant? We would love to hear from you!
