In October 2012, HSBC generously donated $5,000 to Kids Up Front. In December 2012, Kids Up Front was thrilled to receive a global donation from the HSBC Group of £50,000 (British Pounds). This generous gift was a result of the HSBC Group’s innovative corporate social responsibility program – giving back to charities in the communities they serve in lieu of sending corporate Christmas cards.


Since its inception in 1986, the ZLC Foundation Charity Golf Tournament has distributed a total of $884,000 to various charities. Kids Up Front has been fortunate to be the beneficiary charity for the past three consecutive years. In 2012, this premiere golf event raised $40,000 in support of life-changing experiences for kids. In addition, ZLC Financial Group & associates have also donated several thousand dollars to Kids Up Front from proceeds raised at their breakfast seminars and in support of Kids Up Front’s 19th hOle gala.
