Arizona Friends of Foster Children Foundation to present ‘Save Their Summer’

| April 30, 2021

In recognition that many of your child’s summer activities may still be postponed or cancelled, AFFCF is re-opening last year’s Save Their Summer award category from May 1 – July 31, 2021 ONLY. Requests made after July 31 will not be considered.

A ONE-TIME ONLY AWARD of up to $100 may be made for each eligible child in your home so that you can purchase items that will SAVE THEIR SUMMER! Slip and slide? Board games? Water table? Science experiment? Arts and crafts? You name it…we’ll consider funding it!

Here’s how it works:

  1. APPLY at, if you are a licensed or unlicensed foster parent or CASA. Caseworkers are not invited to apply at this time for a Save Their Summer award.
  2. COMPLETE one application for each child you’re requesting. Let us know what specific item(s) you’re requesting in the description box
    on the application.
  3. GET approved for the award by AFFCF. (You’ll be notified via e-mail.) This is a VERY

    important step. If you make a purchase before your request is approved, we CANNOT reimburse you.

  4. PURCHASE the item(s) totaling up to $100 per approved award.
  5. SUBMIT your original receipts to AFFCF.
  6. LOOK for your reimbursement check

    in the mail.

    Apply Online!
