Our journey began in 2005 when a fund was established to honor retiring Pierce County Juvenile Court Administrator, Dan Erker. Dan dedicated 30 years of his life to the children of Pierce County, and while honored a fund had been created in his name, he requested it simply be called, The Children's Fund. With an initial gift of $50, a cigar box (our bank at the time!) and the belief that we could do someting incredible for our kids, The Children's Fund was born.
We have since said goodbye to the cigar box, but our strong desire to see children positively impacted has remained the same. At heart, we are advocates for the most vulnerable; a voice for those who would otherwise not be heard.
