How Can I Help?

Donate to help needy children

 

Lucress Watson was once asked why she was pursuing this dream, since she could not save every child. Her answer to this person was,
"But we can save some..."

-- Lucress Watson

Who We Are

The Watson Children’s Foundation was founded by Richard J. Watson and his wife, the late Lucress Watson. The Watson’s were moved by the plight of children who live outside of the reach of most assistance programs and decided to help the poorest and most helpless children in the world and focus on poor children and the things that most affect their survival and health.

Today, the foundation is still directed by the family that imagined it. Richard Watson continues to guide its course, and often visits the organizations where the foundation is at work. Cindy Bishop, the daughter of Richard and Lucress Watson, directs the foundation’s US office.

The founder’s commitment is to have all the funds directly benefit children, and this intent was written into the documents that created the Lucress Watson and Dick Watson Children’s Foundation.

The foundation is set up as a trust rather than as a corporation, so its goals can’t be changed in years to come. This legal structure offers assurance that funds won’t be diverted into high administrative costs.

The foundation deals only in very low-cost essential medications, basic supplies and vegetable seeds. The Foundation does not send any money.
