Enhancing the lives of children.

Our mission is to enhance the lives of children by supporting children, their families, and organizations that benefit children in the communities we serve.

The employees of Banks, Insure, Invest, and Tax Forward are the driving force in achieving our mission by giving their time and talent to the Forward Foundation.

Making an impact locally.

What do we do?

We help kids in lots of ways. We have provided thousands of meals to low-income children and their families, supported initiatives to prevent child abuse, reduced the financial burden of medical bills incurred by a sick child, and contributed to youth programs providing after school art and tutoring programs to name a few of our donations. In short, we help kids and we do it locally!

Your donation stays local.

One hundred percent of contributions to the Forward Foundation go to the children and organizations we serve. That’s right, 100%! Please consider donating today to help enhance the lives of children living in the communities we serve.
