Fostering Hope relies on in-kind donations to meet the immediate needs of our programs and families. Through in-kind donations, we are able to distribute over 600 journey bags, grant birthday and holiday wishes, and bring joy to kids. Please visit our latest wish list to see the current needs.
Party with a Purpose! Gather your social circle for a night in, a night out or even virtually for the benefit of Fostering Hope. Successful events have included wine tastings, luncheons, brunches, or dinner parties to share the impact of Fostering Hope’s work and raise support.
Organize a community 5K, yoga session or fitness class to benefit Fostering Hope or join the Parrot Head Run, a 5K in Cleveland held in July which ends at Margaritaville. Or, host a yoga mat drive to supply yoga mats to Hope in Balance, Fostering Hope’s trauma-informed yoga program.
Many companies contribute to employee donations up to a certain amount. Some local companies will even match your donation to double your impact. Ask your employer to help children in foster care with a matching donation.
Sponsor the important work that Fostering Hope does. Organizations benefit from philanthropic contributions through positive publicity, improved brand sentiment, and tax benefits. Raise awareness and introduce employees & clients to Fostering Hope’s mission.

A memorial donation is a gift made in memory of a deceased loved one, colleague, friend or neighbor. Many families choose to offer an option of a donation in lieu of flowers for a funeral service when writing obituaries or memorials.
