Cultural Care Au Pair
Kids First "Fund Their Future" Award Application
Kids First "Fund Their Future" grants allow members of the Cultural Care community to request funds for children in need around the world. By providing grants to recommended organizations, Cultural Care Kids First Foundation hopes to reach more children, more Cultural Care community members, and more corners of the world in fulfilling our mission of making a difference in the lives of children.
Applications for "Fund Their Future" grants are accepted year-round and reviewed on a quarterly basis. To be eligible for a Kids First “Fund Their Future” Award:
The organization should:
• Benefit a group of economically disadvantaged children (under-served, low income/poverty level)
• Be a human services charity (as opposed to a health charity or other charity category as defined by GuideStar) providing direct services to children in need
• Operate in a country where Cultural Care Au Pair/EF has an office
The donation grant should:
• Be used for a specific project, as opposed to funding for ongoing expenses
• Make a long-term, lasting difference in the lives of the children
Fund Their Future grants are available for items and programs that go beyond the daily or health needs of the children and provide opportunities for education, culture, and recreation.
The applicant should:
• Be a member of the Cultural Care Au Pair/EF community
• Complete a grant application
• Provide a plan for follow up with the organization to confirm how the funds were used (included in the grant application)
• Hold a Kids First fundraising event within the year to “pay it forward” for other grants to be awarded in the future
