More about Fostering Wishes for Children – Wishes & Grants for Foster Children in NJ
Fostering Wishes for Children was started with a challenge grant by the Long Valley Presbyterian Church in Long Valley, New Jersey in 2000. The goal is to award up to $75 per child in foster care for special activities or items. Many foster families are unable to provide “extras” to their foster children due to financial constraints. These funds are used to pay for school yearbooks, senior class rings, prom tickets, art/music lessons, registration for camp, scouting expenses and much more.
Children in foster care are the community’s children with the same hopes and dreams as all children. We hope you can join us in making their dreams a reality by contributing to Fostering Wishes for Children. All donations are tax deductible to the fullest extent of the law.
Your contribution will make a real difference in the life of a NJ foster child. Since the program’s inception, caring people like you have helped FAFS grant 1,970 wishes for NJ foster children!
