Thank you for considering donating towards The children of TCDF!
Thanks to donations TCDF has made a difference in the lives of hundreds of children in need for more then a decade!
We have been blessed by the support of sponsors most of whom have been here and seen with their own eyes what a big difference a donation, even a small one can make. Ofcourse most visitors want to donate something practical, visible, such as the wheelchairs, physio material or milk and medicine…And over the years we were able to gather most of the materials we need to run efficiently and most importantly in a safe manner. We are now blessed to have our own school bus , physio material and occupational training work stations!
But we might soon not have the means to use all of this donated materials as right now the foundation does not have enough funds to keep the special school for special need children open from next term starting in november!
So we hope you will become a FRIEND of TCDF with a small, but steady monthly donation we can count on. Or “adopt “one of the children, or simply donate one time towards keeping the TCDF school open for the upcoming year.
At TCDF all individual donations will be used 100% for the projects and the children within these projects.
And never used for overhead costs such as a downtown office, big P.R. events or salaries of an international fundraising team. Our financial books are completely open to the public and detailed to the cents! Scroll down to read more about our financial systems and download our yearly plans, budgets and reports.
Our children all have different needs and there are just as many ways to make a difference! Please scroll down to read about differnece ways to make a difference and the benefits and gifts that come with this.

Please do consider becoming a Friend of TCDF!
In a world where war and natural disasters ruins the lives of so many it is difficult for a small foundation as TCDF to do fundraising for kids who might have a disability and be in need, but they are not dying from hunger and they are not being forced out of their homes. There are other children who need donations way more than ours…And yet, how can we tell our children that they cannot go to school anymore because there is no sponsor, or that their medicines are being taken away because of lack of funding? We cannot, and that is why we are asking people to become Friends of TCDF.
Friends support TCDF on a long term, monthly base with a financial contribution. Our kids and our Thai team can surely count on in the planning and dividing of the medical and educational support of the children in need.
For people with a Dutch bankaccount you can make and automatic monthly tranfer for an amount you choose. You can also download the direct debit form here. or for questions send an email to the secretary in the Netherlands, Maria Tieges (firstname.lastname@example.org).
For our non Dutch friends, the costs for international bank transfer can be high and not worth it for smaller donations. We ask you to donate your Friend contribution yearly or use PayPal for monthly payments!
Thank you so much.
