Why donate to Angel Charity for Children?

Angel Charity for Children, Inc., is a non-profit organization comprised of approximately 250 devoted volunteers representing a cross-section of the Tucson community. Through innovative fundraising, these dedicated ‘Angels’ are committed to providing Pima County’s children with the vibrant future they so richly deserve.

Founded in 1983 by Tucsonans Louise Thomas and Jane Loews Sharples, Angel Charity for Children, Inc. retired the mortgage and expanded the remodeled Ronald McDonald House in its first year of working miracles. Every year since then, a thoroughly researched, tax-exempt children’s agency (or multiple agencies) benefits from the year-round fundraising programs.

  • We fund only non-profit agencies serving the needs of children in Pima County.
  • Our beneficiary selection process includes a detailed application, multiple presentations, a thorough and professional analysis of financial statements as well as an investigation of mortgages and leases, and a site visit to help ensure each beneficiary is a viable, sustainable entity.

Please join us and our community to support Angel Charity’s ongoing mission to help meet the needs of all the children in Pima County!
