AFFCF Announces New Education Support Initiative

AFFCF Announces New Education Support Initiative

As the fall school year rapidly approaches, The Arizona Friends of Foster Children Foundation (AFFCF), located at 360 East Coronado Road, is pleased to announce its new Recharge… Reconnect… Reward program that serves to support foster youth returning to school.

The AFFCF asked teachers, professionals, and parents what students are in need of most to ensure a great school year — and the non-profit organization is funding these important items through their new Recharge… Reconnect… Reward program. Beginning Monday, August 10, applications for the education support initiative will be available. Individuals that oversee the academic progress of a student in foster care may apply and the following items are available:

• Backpack, $50 limit
• Graphing calculator, $100 limit
• Online learning programs for caregivers and students, $100 limit
• Sensory learning items, $50
• Traditional school supplies (paper, pencils, ruler, etc.), $100
• Workspace (small desk or lap desk), $100
• Technology such as:
Earbuds with microphone, $10
Internet service, $40/month (three-month maximum)
Hotspot, $40 maximum
Laptop/tablet - $175 maximum
Printer, $100

Rewards are reimbursable only, and individuals are asked not to purchase items prior to application approval from the AFFCF. Those with questions regarding this new program may call 602-252-9445. Additional information required to submit an education support award can be found at
