About Toys For Tots:
The Marine Toys for Tots Foundation (http://toysfortots.org) enjoys one of the very best “programs to support” ratios within the nonprofit world at 98:2. This means that over 98% of donations go to the mission of providing toys, books and other gifts to less fortunate children. While the remaining 2% spent on support principally covers fundraising expenses - not one donated dollar goes to pay for salaries or any other manpower costs.
Toys for Tots objectives are to help less fortunate children throughout the United States experience the joy of Christmas; to play an active role in the development of one of our nation’s most valuable resources – our children; to unite all members of local communities in a common cause for three months each year during the annual toy collection and distribution campaign; and to contribute to better communities in the future to donate gifts for children who might not receive anything on Christmas day.
