The Kids First Fund has been granted special consultative status with the Economic and Social Council of the United Nations.

This status allows Kids First Fund to designate official representatives to the United Nations Headquarters in New York, and to U.N. offices in Geneva and Vienna. Board members John DeGregorio, Rogers Grigulis, Irma Kalnina and Jay Sorensen were designated as Kids First Fund representatives. This designation will open the door for the Kids First Fund to help contribute to the creation of policy on issues related to children's rights worldwide. The United Nations may engage the Kids First Fund in supporting the action plans and declarations adopted by the United Nations.

The Kids First Fund, as an organization under the special category of consultative status, may circulate position statements at Economic and Social Council meetings. Organizations granted status also may attend General Assembly special sessions and international conferences called by the United Nations. Currently there are 2,719 NGOs worldwide in consultative status with the Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC).
