Beneficiaries

Apply for AidWhen it comes to selecting our beneficiaries, we leave no stone unturned. We make a point to involve ourselves in our partner’s activities, experiencing firsthand how our funds are used to make a difference in children’s lives. Seeing this difference is our greatest reward.

We focus most of our fundraising efforts on programs that educate and empower underprivileged children—both physically and mentally. All the money we raise is distributed directly to child development organizations in the communities in which we reside. We serve as fundraisers – we leverage our networks of friends/coworkers/families to help buttress our goal of improving the lives of children in need.

The Linus Foundation is always looking for new opportunities to reach children in need. If you are interested in becoming a Beneficiary please contact us at partner@linusfoundation.org.
