Make a Donation

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

As 2014 comes to a close, would you consider a gift of $30 or more per month or a generous one time donation?  100% of you donation will help us:

  • Mobilize and engage local churches to serve, mentor and support their foster care communities.
  • Support, resource, and equip our TFI Advocates and National Church Partners and recruit more.
  • Create more awareness for the 102,000 waiting children in the US foster care system needing forever families.
  • Work with churches to implement support networks for families who are caring for kids from the foster care system.

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.
