Since 1984 Arizona Friends of Foster Children serve kids through scholarship
Staff Reports | Digital Free Press

The Arizona Friends of Foster Children Foundation has been serving children in need since 1984 here in the Grand Canyon State and this past month the Scottsdale Charros — through its philanthropic arm The Charro Foundation — provided a $9,500 grant to the Phoenix-based outreach effort.

The Arizona Friends of Foster Children Foundation through charitable donations provides for children in foster care by funding activities and scholarships.

Formed in 1961, the Scottsdale Charros are an all-volunteer, nonprofit group of business and civic leaders committed to supporting education, youth sports and other charitable causes in addition to promoting Scottsdale as the “The West’s Most Western Town.”

The Charro Foundation is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that supports Scottsdale Schools and the community in a variety of ways, including promoting education through scholarships and other educational programming, as well as youth activities, sports and cultural enrichment in our community.

Sarah Frey of the Scottsdale Charros offers that the Arizona Friends of Foster Children Foundation began in 1984 with a single award of $29.61 for a child in Prescott to take flute lessons and since then AFFCF has funded more than $14 million in grant requests.

Those dollars have translated into providing for 77,000 requests since the effort’s inception in 1984. Representatives of AFFCF contend the 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization has never said “no” to a request that falls within its guidelines.

“What we do is made possible through caring individuals and organizations like Scottsdale Charros,” said AFFCF Executive Director Luis De La Cruz said in a prepared statement.
