About 2021 Foster Success Friendsgiving

FriendsGiving (#fsFriendsGiving) is our holiday season fundraising and awareness campaign. Will you be celebrating the holidays with your friends and family? For the teens and young adults transitioning out of Indiana's foster care system, most of them do not have that same privilege. 

Together with our friends and supporters, community partners, and volunteers we're raising $30,000 this holiday season to provide 25 financial matches up to $3,500 for our young adults to purchase their first car, apartment, or house.

When we raise $30,000, we will unlock a $30,000 match that increases your direct impact!

  • Make an investment. Investing in Foster Success' work through your donation allows us to reach our fundraising goal and unlock a matching gift. Don't forget to share your WHY by letting others know you support a cause, because they are more likely to support it because of you.

  • Register below to create your personal fundraising page and challenge your friends, family, and colleagues to help Foster Success reach $30,000 to invest in our young people's success. Set your dollar goal and raise crucial funding for our financial empowerment support programs.

  • Share widely your WHY. Never underestimate the power of your WHY.  Why do you support Foster Success? Why did you support FriendsGiving? Why have you chosen to become a support system for our young people? Why is our work important?  Sharing your reasons of supporting Foster Success exposes others to our mission and impact on teens and young adults transitioning out of the foster care system.

Your participation allows for self-sufficiency

Foster Success is the only state-wide organization that offers a variety of programs to support the 24,000 Hoosiers who experienced foster care as a teen. None of this can happen without the investment of individual donors or corporate and community partners. 

Your donation provides goods and services directly to teens and young adults and assists in providing support in financial literacy, educational success, workforce readiness, and all the necessary tools towards self-sufficiency. 

How Your Support Makes a Difference

Your investment in Foster Success is an investment in teens and young adults transitioning out of foster care.  Foster Success works to support the whole person by providing training and connections through financial literacy, educational success, workforce readiness, and health and wellness.  

However, the young adults we support often cannot think about their long-term journey due to their basic needs.  Regularly, Foster Success receives the below basic needs requests:

  • Average utility request: $237
  • Average transportation request: $181
  • Average housing request: $481
