Bonneville Sacramento, home of MIX 96, NOW 100.5, New Country 105.1 KNCI, and Sports 1140 KHTK has partnered year-round with the Ticket to Dream Foundation to reduce homelessness, boost graduation rates and increase employment rates to better prepare foster youth for success upon aging out of care.

Our Focus This Summer:

Back to School: Throughout the summer we are rallying listeners to help raise impactful funds that will provide school supplies to thousands of local foster youth. These essentials help ensure foster youth keep up in the classroom and builds self-esteem as they no longer need to borrow from others throughout the year. Your donations will help foster youth focus on learning and work towards graduation.

Laptops for Success: Research shows that foster children face a growing digital divide with more than 80% of foster youth not having consistent access to a computer. To help Ticket to Dream is partnering with iFoster to distribute hundreds of new laptops bundled with lifetime software, and tech support to ensure foster teens have the tools and skills they need to succeed. Foster teens who are given these resources experience improved grades, school and work attendance, the pursuit of college and employment improves, depression and suicide rates are reduced, and self-esteem increases.

Why Graduation is Key:

The odds facing foster youth are staggering and every bit of support that helps boost graduation rates and in turn future employment can change the future. These youth, like all kids need our support to thrive.


About Ticket to Dream:
Ticket to Dream Foundation, a registered 501(c)3 non-profit organization, is dedicated to creating hope and opportunity for foster children across the nation, so they can just be kids.

Getting to experience the joy of a gift under the tree, a trip to the zoo or joining a sports team. It's ensuring they have vital services and support that allow them to heal and grow to reach their full potential even as they age out of care. We want foster kids across the country to thrive, but we can't do it alone – we need your help.
