Our Mission

Grant a Wish!

Your generous donations have helped the Family Giving Tree provide nearly 600,000 underprivileged children with holiday gifts over the past 18 years. In this, our 19th year, we are asking our donors to step up to the plate again. By supporting the Family Giving Tree programs, you will directly touch a child's life in a personal, fulfilling way because each gift is a specifically wished for item.

Thanks to a $15,000 challenge grant from Sobrato Foundation, a new or increased gift in 2008 will be matched. DOUBLE your impact for the kids this holiday season!

Our program has been recognized for its efficiency; Charity Navigator gave the Family Giving Tree a four-star rating, their highest! Please look us up at Charity Navigator.

So help an underprivileged child in your community by donating to the Family Giving Tree...and create wonderful childhood memories!
