Trusts and Foundations


Very Special Kids partners with many generous trusts, foundations and private ancillary funds.

Our philanthropic partners are dedicated to helping children with life-threatening conditions and their families and are fundamental in our ability to provide the many programs and services we offer.

Setting up a trust, foundation or a private ancillary fund (PAF) is the important first step of planned giving. At Very Special Kids we are committed to helping you make informed funding decisions based around your values, interests and passions and will work with you to select programs that meet your philanthropic objectives and desired level of involvement.
