The Love Fund for Children bridges the gap in youth services by partnering with advocates to fulfill unique, unmet needs of children across Kansas City


Our Story

The FOX4 Love Fund for Children was founded by FOX4 in 1981 following the groundswell of viewer support the station received after airing the news series “Thursdays Child.” We created a 501(c)(3), and began serving children in the FOX4 viewing area, and have since met critical needs for over 100,000 children in ways no other organization is addressing.



Years Serving Our community

Begun in 1981, The FOX4 Love Fund for Children, a 501(c)(3) organization, has been serving our community.


Total Children served

Over 100,000 children have received critical need assistance. Beds, coats, medical services are just a few of the critical needs we provided in 2018.


Children served in 2018

Our goal for 2019 is to more than triple that number. Currently, we know of 20,000 children in the KC Metro living in poverty. Can you help?
