Your Giving Matters

While Anchorage Children's Home does obtain federal and state funding through grants and contracts to serve at-risk and abused, neglected and abandoned children; these funding sources frequently require private matching funds and do not provide enough support to pay for the total cost of essential services. The generous financial support by our community partners and private individuals is critical to our ability to continue to be an Anchor for today's children and strengthen tomorrow's families. We need your help through financial support to the Anchorage Children’s Home Foundation which provides the private funds necessary to effectively run the programs of Anchorage Children’s Home.
