Each country is established with an individual mission based, nonprofit organization and is recognized among reputable Christian charities.
Children of the Nations is a worldwide movement of people—over 400 US and international staff, tens of thousands of volunteers, an annual budget of over $7M, and a family that has grown to provide daily for more than 23,000 children in Africa, the Dominican Republic, and Haiti.
Each year, Thom Allison travels to the Dominican Republic to assist in a home building program.

The mission of Rotary International is to provide service to others, promote integrity, and advance world understanding, goodwill, and peace through its fellowship of business, professional, and community leaders. The Club and its affiliated Poulsbo North Kitsap Rotary Foundation raise about $100,000 each year through various fundraising activities which is then used for a wide variety of charitable, community service, and international humanitarian projects.
Brad Allen has been an active member of the Poulsbo North Kitsap Rotary Club for over 10 years. Brad has served as the Club’s treasurer for many years and is a past president and treasurer of the Foundation. In addition, he has volunteered innumerable hours on work parties for a variety of projects in his community.
Brad has volunteered a considerable amount of his free time each of the last three federal income tax “seasons” preparing tax returns for people through the AARP Tax-Aide program. Along with a number of other volunteers, the program prepares tax returns for thousands of people in Brad’s community at no charge.
Brad and Thom are both past presidents of the FPA of Puget Sound, one of about 100 chapters of the Financial Planning Association. The association was formed to further the advancement of financial planning as a profession and to raise the bar for that profession to the highest ethical standards. Under Brad and Thom’s leadership, the local chapter of over 400 financial planners embarked on and maintains a vibrant pro-bono program providing free financial planning advice to hundreds of individuals and families in the Seattle area. Brad and Thom have volunteered many hours of their time providing this valuable assistance to families in the community.
