Founded in 1993 by NFL Hall of Famer Steve Young, Forever Young Foundation is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization focused on passing on hope and resources for the development, strength, and education of children. The Foundation serves children facing significant physical, emotional, and financial challenges by providing them with academic, athletic, and therapeutic opportunities currently unavailable to them. Forever Young Foundation primarily focuses our efforts in Northern California, Arizona, Utah, and Ghana, Africa.
Our development projects include Forever Young Zones and 8 to 80 Zones, which provide technology and multimedia labs for those living in underserved communities as well as state-of-the-art interactive play areas in children’s hospitals. Our newest initiative, Sophie’s Place, provide dedicated music therapy facilities in children’s hospitals. These special spaces care for young people suffering from pain, chronic illness, and serious injury. Our international initiatives include the building and expansion of schools in Ghana, Africa, as well as enhancing health, educational, and athletic opportunities for Ghanaian youth. We also devote significant time and resources supporting other remarkable nonprofits through our Nonprofit Institute, GIVE Conferences, and grant making.
Arizona Charitable Giving is a labor of love created to make it easier for the residents of our great state to search and find local charities that touch their hearts. We share selected charities and events to a large distribution list of Arizona residents via email and social media on a regular basis. Any qualified charitable organizations are welcome to submit their profile to be included in our on-going outreach efforts.
