Children In Need Foundation


Children In Need Foundation

The Children In Need Foundation (CINF) is a non-profit 501(c)(3) charitable organization created and maintained by current and past members of the Active 20-30 Club of Phoenix. All proceeds from the Club's fundraising activities are funneled directly to CINF, with 30% of the funds going into an endowment fund, and the remainder going into a general fund for disbursement to our beneficiaries.

Our foundation needs your support in order to grow and reach our full potential. CINF asks that you share your resources, time, talent and knowledge by becoming a member of Active 20-30 Club of Phoenix, and learning what it means to live by the maxim "One never stands so tall as when kneeling to help a child". Alternatively, you can pledge your support by making a donation.
