The Gulf Coast For Kids foundation is a volunteer based, non-profit organization that was established in 1992 by Johnny and Kim Beck.

The mission of the 501C3 organization is to help the needy children throughout the Counties of the Mississippi Gulf Coast. This help may be in any form, but to date the focus has been to provide Christmas gifts, food, and clothing along with other essential health and comfort items.

Generally, the foundation seeks assistance in the form of requests for funds to support its mission since most assistance is provided from Contributions and Sponsorships made by gulf coast businesses, citizens, and time donated by local Dentists and Optometrists.

Gulf Coast for Kids has an annual fund raiser in the Fall. Since 1992, Gulf Coast for Kids has provided more than 40,000 children with Christmas.

Feature1 Gulf Coast For Kids views the family as the primary institution in which normal growth and development of children occurs. We believe it is necessary to empower families and communities to work in partnership with formal and informal service organizations to strengthen the child welfare system.

Every year our priority is improving the quality of life for children in need on the Mississippi Gulf Coast and that mission remains the same throughout our growth. Through donations, sponsorships, fundraising events, and help from other Charitable Organizations we reach out to as many children as possible.
