  • Your donation provides our TFI Advocates with the resources and support they need to equip local churches to come alongside the foster care community, impacting them with the love and joy of Jesus.
  • Your gift also expands our reach into new communities – serving more churches, recruiting more advocates, and finding families for the 100,000 kids nationwide who have yet to find one.

Donate Online by Credit Card

Our online donations are done through our parent site, Lifesong for Orphans.  By clicking the link below, you’ll be redirected to Lifesong’s secure site, where you can donate directly to The Forgotten Initiative using a credit or debit card.
