Charity for Children
About Us

Our Mission

Every child deserves a chance at happiness. Many children are burdened with medical issues and face daily obstacles that may seem insurmountable. At Charity for Children, a local not-for-profit organization, our mission is to provide support to children living with diseases, disabilities, and/or disorders in Central New York. Charity for Children is a child-centered organization, rather than a disease-specific organization, allowing us to fill in where other organizations leave off to leave no family without assistance regardless of their diagnosis.

Our efforts focus on providing assistance directly to children and their families who often struggle to overcome the many associated challenges of health-related issues and expenses. These services are mostly financial, but also include advocacy, intervention, and referrals. Working in conjunction with other organizations, Charity for Children strives to fulfill most, if not all, of our children’s needs. First, last, and always, we are advocates for children.

Our Fundraising Efforts

Charity for Children is a registered 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization dedicated to assisting children with medical needs and their families during their most critical times. So many of these children are chronically ill and require long-term assistance for months or years.

All of our income comes from our fundraising efforts and private donations. We do not receive any federal or state funding, which means that we rely solely on the generosity of our community members and local businesses. For more information regarding our mission, please contact Executive Director Nina Albino-DeVoldre.

We take donations via Paypal or Venmo.
