Founder's message

Welcome to Fund a Future, and thank you for taking the time to read this message. My name is James Pierce, and I started Fund a Future, Inc in 2007 in an effort to make a difference in children’s lives around the world. My wife and I have traveled to six continents and have seen firsthand the challenges so many children face — challenges that are unfathomable for most people who have enjoyed good health, education, and opportunities in their lives.

The unfortunate reality is that many millions of children face adversity and exploitation in every country in the world. This is even more troublesome given that they did not choose their parents, ethnicity, or place of birth. Many never know their parents at all but rather know the harsh reality of trying to stay alive in an unforgiving and often outright hostile environment.
 

The good news is that you can personally make a difference in their lives. Whether you choose to align your efforts with Fund a Future, another worthwhile charitable organization, or make the effort to do something individually of your own design, rest assured individuals can and do make a difference every day. I’ve seen the difference a little personal motivation, perseverance, and generosity can make in a child’s life firsthand.

My uncle founded Email Foster Parents International upon returning from Cambodia after meeting an extraordinary lady, Nuon Phaly. Ms. Phaly made it her life’s work to help orphans in Phnom Phen. I immediately signed on as a foster parent and later visited the orphanage with my wife during a trip through Southeast Asia. It was during our trip, after I saw the positive impact this “grassroots” effort had in these children’s lives, that I decided we could duplicate this model many times over. Fund a Future was born.
 

Fund a Future is unique in a number of ways. First, we strive to make personal connections between donors and children, connections we hope will last a lifetime. Second, being a small organization, we are dependent on individual efforts to achieve our goals. We welcome ideas and donations of time in addition to monetary donations. Lastly, our success is measured not by how much money we raise, but rather by the impact we have on a child’s life

There are certainly many excellent charitable organizations that are much larger, better organized, and have proven track records. I encourage everyone to donate their time and money to these organizations as your personal situation allows. However, I also invite you to participate in Fund a Future’s programs and help build our organization to assure long-term sustainability and success. 
 

In closing, I would like to personally thank our donors and directors. Without their continued motivation, persistence, and generosity, Fund a Future would not be possible. I encourage anyone interested in helping underprivileged children to call me directly at the number below, and I’ll be happy to discuss our programs.
