Foster Youth Education Fund

empowering foster youth to achieve their HIGHER education dreams



What is the Big Day of Giving?  It’s a chance for 600 local nonprofits to raise money online, in one day. Last year, Big Day of Giving raised $7.2 million region-wide for area programs.   Share the message, spread the word – this is 24 little hours to make a big difference. For our youth, for the arts, for the environment, for the community – whatever you care about, there is an organization working to make it better in the Sacramento region. Let’s join together and give back.  You can help!  Make your donation on May 3rd at  OR pre-schedule your gift.

Thank you for the computer I was given. It has been so helpful being able to study at home. Before, I had to complete all of my homework and studying in the library at my school. I really appreciate all that this organization has done for me. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.

I don’t really know how to express how much I appreciate the support Foster Youth Education Fund has given me. It is beyond words. I will say this though, it is so good to know there are people in my corner that really care about me and my well-being.

...I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for all of the support you have given me throughout my education. I am so fortunate to have found this scholarship that serves former foster youth from my area. There are so many former foster youth who are forgotten after they leave the system. This organization gives us the chance to make something of ourselves rather than fall into a negative statistic. I am graduating in May this year and I couldn’t have done it without your support...thank you for helping me achieve my goals.
