Children’s Forum CARES

(Crisis Assistance, Relief, and Emergency Support)

Forum CARES is a new program of the Children’s Forum. Please check back often for new Questions and Answers.

Where does my donation go?

The Children’s Forum is a tax-exempt 501(c)(3) organization and receives 100% of each contribution to our agency. In turn, we pledge to direct 100% of your donation to Forum CARES to our mission to “lend a helping hand” to child care centers in crisis. Distribution of funds will be made through an application process.

Will Forum CARES fund the daily operating costs of a child care program that is experiencing financial difficulty?

No, Forum CARES is solely a disaster relief program. We are unable to provide assistance to programs experiencing financial distress that is unrelated to physical damage to property and/or possessions.
