Foster Forward + 401 Gives

Categories: Blog, News, Uncategorized

THANK YOU for your support!

Yesterday, 401 Gives brought the state together to raise nearly 1.2 million dollars in just 24 hours. What an incredible success! THANK YOU for being a part of 401 Gives and supporting hundreds of foster youth and young adults. We raised $21,825 yesterday with your support! 

Your gifts are buying basic necessities for foster youth, especially those who might be experiencing further challenges from this public health crisis. Thank you for ensuring youth have groceries, gas, toiletries, warm bedding. Thank you for helping them pay for child care when it’s time to return to work. Thank you for helping us provide “barrier assistance” to youth in a health, employment, or housing crisis.

We recognize that this is a very uncertain time for many. We also want to acknowledge that connection and kindness is still ever-present, which we felt throughout your participation in 401 Gives. Through emails, videos, and social media, we have been able to stay connected with you and hundreds more in the Foster Forward family.

We were never in this mission alone, and we believe that our work is always better when we join together as a part of a greater community. Thank you for your time and for your gifts. Thank you for believing in our work and your commitment to make sure every life touched by foster care is changed for good.
