Fostering Hope Programs


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.

Fostering Fitness

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.

Matching Donations

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.

Corporate Sponsorships

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.

In-Kind Donations

Host a drive at your school, workplace or place of worship to collect items in need for our holiday events or Summer Camp. Visit our Amazon Wish List and help us fulfill simple wishes for our awesome kids. 

Amazon Smile
