Your tax-deductible donation to our nonprofit foster children charity supports New Jersey foster, adoptive and kinship families and helps make a difference in the life of a child.
Foster and Adoptive Family Services (FAFS) depends on the generosity of individuals, companies and organizations to assist in providing programs that support foster, adoptive and kinship families and the children in their care. For over 35 years, FAFS, one of New Jersey’s most established charity organizations that help children and families, has been bridging the gaps between what the government can provide and what children in foster care need to heal and thrive. When you help foster kids by contributing to FAFS, you give much more than money; you give them the chance to lead self-sufficient, productive and happy adult lives.
Here is a list of our programs for foster children and how your donation makes a difference:
FAFS Private Scholarships and Opportunity Grants — Your donation provides young adults aging out of foster care, or who have been adopted from DYFS, with the opportunity to pursue their educational or independent living goals. Scholarships can be used for college tuition, books and housing; Opportunity Grants can be used for educational purposes, or to purchase household necessities, such as bedding, dishes or a microwave. Help bridge the gap between hope and a future for youths aging out of, or adopted from, foster care.
Camp Scholarships — Your donation provides children in foster care with an enriching sleep away camp experience that boosts their self-esteem and promotes positive social interaction. Help bridge the gap between old and new experiences and give NJ children in foster care positive memories that will last a lifetime.
Fostering Wishes For Children — Your donation provides children in foster care with the chance to take advantage of opportunities that boost their self-esteem, promote feelings of belonging and enrich their lives. Wishes have been granted for art and music lessons, sports registration fees, prom bids, class pictures and more. Help bridge the gap between dreams and possibilities by granting a wish for a NJ child in foster care.
A Holiday Celebration For Every Child — Your donation provides children in foster care the change to enjoy holiday-themed food and activities in the company of others who share their experiences living apart from their biological parents, and in some cases, allows siblings placed in separate foster homes the chance to reunite for the holidays. Help bridge the gap between loneliness and holiday cheer for NJ children in foster care.
