preferred partners

They make fun happen.

Preferred Partners

For nearly 35 years, the Arizona Friends of Foster Children Foundation has been funding social, athletic and educational activities for children in foster care. In our history, if the request is within our guidelines, we say yes.

Our preferred partners have played an important role in making fun happen for children in foster care, by providing fun activities that are funded by AFFCF awards. When searching for activities for your child, please consider one of our preferred partners. They  offer special discounts on a variety of items and services for children in foster care!

Want to become a preferred partner? Download our application packet or contact our outreach coordinator, Kim Searles, at ksearles@affcf.org to learn more.
