preferred partners

They make fun happen.

Preferred Partners

For more than 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.

When searching for activities for your child, please consider one of our preferred partners. 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.

AFFCF deems a vendor a preferred partner primarily on the basis that the vendor provides a discount for children in foster care. However, every child’s needs are different, and AFFCF does not — and cannot — determine if the goods and/or services offered by a particular vendor are suitable for a particular child. It is solely the applicant’s responsibility to determine if the goods and/or services offered by a vendor, whether an AFFCF preferred partner or not, are right for the child in question.

Want to become a preferred partner? Apply to become an AFFCF preferred partner or contact our outreach coordinator, Kim Searles, at ksearles@affcf.org to learn more.
