WSAZ Children's Charities

Children today have to endure the hardship and obstacles of dysfunctional families, substandard education, poor health care, crime and other violence. WSAZ Children's Charities is a non-profit foundation created in 1997 to benefit at-risk children. The charity offers assistance to many social and charitable organizations throughout our 33 county viewing area. We have contributed hundreds of thousands of dollars to hundreds of non-profits organizations ranging from academics and the arts, to shelters for troubled teens, supplemental food and medical aid. WSAZ believes providing monetary assistance where it is needed most makes a positive and meaningful impact on local organizations who work with children in our communities.
