2019 Charity  


Dr. Anne C. Fox-Clarkson, an elementary school principal in Coeur d'Alene, ID., and two parents from her school, Carol Rankin and Kathy Curran, founded Children's Village in 1983. Dr. Fox-Clarkson made a promise to a brother and sister who had been victims of child abuse that she would build them a home.

Children's Village, Inc. was incorporated in 1984 in the State of Idaho and is designated as a non-profit 501(c)3 charity by the IRS. The facility is governed by a volunteer Board of Directors and the daily operations are managed by a dedicated administrative team. The agency has a double check and balance financial system with an outside annual audit by a local CPA firm. To date, the corporation remains debt free owning fifteen acres and two large homes and a shop. The governing board is committed to following "best practices" and adheres to industry standards. They take pride in being prudent stewards of the community's trust and financial support.
