About Us

How it All Began

Central New York is fortunate to have many charities doing wonderful work for children. However, in 2004, Nina Albino and Kathleen Miller-Murphy saw a need for something more. They founded Charity for Children as a way to provide financial and educational support to local children with diseases, disabilities, and disorders who may have otherwise gone without assistance.

The idea was to help not just the affected children, but entire families who must cope with daily challenges related to a diagnosis. With its localized focus, Charity for Children is able to simplify many of the strict administrative processes of national charities and make it as easy as possible for families to get help. The organization taps into the strong charitable spirit of Central New York businesses and individuals, inspires action, and makes a difference in many lives.
