Legacy Gifts

Change a Child's Life

At Children First, we believe that every child deserves the opportunity to dream big and achieve his or her full potential. With a planned gift to our Legacy Society, you can help to make this happen. Together, we can make a difference in the lives of the children and families we serve, for years to come.


One of the greatest dignities of humankind is that each successive generation is invested in the welfare of each new generation.
