We are asking community members and businesses to rally their friends, family, and networks to help raise funds that will help foster youth enter the new school year with all the supplies they need to start the school year ready to learn. By becoming a fundraiser for Ticket to Dream Foundation, you will help more foster kids just be kids , and you'll help your friends feel good about doing good.
Starting a fundraiser is easy to do, and it's fun. We'll even give you all the tools you'll need to make a difference.
Did you know? The average youth in foster care experiences 3 home changes and loses up to 6 months of academic progress with each move. They are already facing an uphill academic battle; the last thing they should be worried about is making sure they have the correct school supplies. Helping ensure foster youth have what they need to succeed in school allows them to enter the classroom with confidence knowing they won't need to borrow items or negatively stand out from their peers. Every pencil and dollar helps foster kids start the school year right!
