Support Foster Progress
We depend on donors like you to provide high quality programming for Illinois youth in foster care. Your donation makes a real difference in the lives of our youth and their families.
When you buy our exclusive gear, at least 50% of your purchase will fund scholarships for foster youth.
If you’d like 100% of your donation to go toward scholarships, set up your gift here:
Faithful monthly givers are the bread and butter of our funding, freeing us from thinking about fundraising so that we can focus on programming. New monthly supporters will receive a thank you gift as a tangible reminder of our gratitude!
