Fore The Kids (FTK) is a 501(c)(3) Arizona nonprofit organization dedicated to helping youth in the greater Phoenix area. Our focus will always be enhancing communal values and furthering child development to those who lack the resources to do so. By lending a helping hand to those in need, we do our best to ensure that our youth reach their full potential. Our goal is to provide grants to programs and nonprofit organizations focused on helping youth in Arizona overcome adversity and reach their full potential as productive, caring, responsible citizens.
Founded by Michael Diamond, after a vision of wanting to give back to the charities he grew up serving, FTK was incorporated in June of 2019. Shortly after, a team of young professionals was assembled with the same vision in mind. FTK started as a group of young professionals dedicated to helping our community’s youth through a series of fundraising events and initiatives. Through financial and volunteering contributions the FTK Team has been able to provide essential needs and interactive opportunities to children here in the valley.
The FTK team consists of 15 Active Members under the age of 30 working to set an example for generations to come that it is never too early to start giving back. Through many committed sponsors and supported FTK has been able to create a sustainable fundraising foundation to support children in need. The number of volunteers, supporters, and team members has continuously grown year after year and we are always looking for individuals that want to help be part of the cause. MEET our TEAM below.
In the past three years, FTK has seen exponential growth. Funds are raised through signature events like FTK Annual Golf Tournament, Holiday Fundraiser and Super Kids Golf Tournament. Fore The Kids has supported multiple child development organization including The Boys & Girls Clubs of Valley: Warner & Shirley Gabel Branch, Young Life and Kif1A.org. To date FTK has helped donated over $300,000 since being founded in 2019 to all these organization.
