Make a Donation

Together, we can make a difference in the lives of those who feel forgotten!

The Forgotten Initiative of Lifesong for Orphans has been blessed with a partner that underwrites all US administrative and fund-raising costs (TMG Foundation and other partners). That means 100% of your donation will go directly to the need – helping the foster care community.
