The Family Care Foundation was established by The Family in 1997. In recent years, it has come to light that they have had child molesters serve on their board of directors and that they funded and supported charitable projects run by child molesters and abusers. Moreover, the projects run by child molesters which they funded involved contact with children.
Here is a list of Family Care Foundation funders who gave the Family Care Foundation a grant of more than $5,000. It does not yet include grants from 2004. Please note that there is no evidence that any of these foundations were aware of the connection between the Family Care Foundation and The Family. Nor is there any evidence that the foundations which gave FCF grants were aware of the Family Care Foundation's history of providing funding for child molesters to "help" children." Indeed, "Waitt Family Foundation chief administrator Al Panico told LOCAL 8 that he was "shocked and surprised" when he found out about the connection between the Family Care Foundation and a sex cult called The Family that once advocated sex with children."1
