Fostering Great Ideas is powered by awesome volunteers. Join us!
□ Moms Matter – provide a celebration basket for moms who reunite with their children.
□ Thanksgiving Grace – provide food for a Thanksgiving holiday event for children in care and their birth families.
□ Our Story – as a seasoned or retired foster parent, guide a new foster parent through making of a Life Book with their child.
□ Life Support – mentor youth in foster care to become confident, successful young adults. All volunteers must:
- commit to contacting their youth twice per month for as long as the youth remains in foster care;
- pass an extensive national background check;
- submit monthly progress reports
□ Tutor – tutor children and youth in foster care to improve their grade level abilities. Volunteers commit to weekly contact (face-to-face or check-up call) and must pass an extensive national background check.
□ Guardian ad Litem or CASA – be a child’s advocate during court hearings. Opportunities with partner agencies vary according to the state you live in. Search on the web for your local organization.

□ Ambassador – become an FGI Ambassador and speak to your community about changing the lives of children in foster care.
□ Care2Foster – learn more about becoming a foster parent.
□ Carry On – host a corporate luggage drive for children who move around with garbage bags.
□ Donate – FGI runs on the generosity of our donors, from $20 to $10,000. Consider a monthly gift.
