Project Renovate

You can partner with TFI through Project Renovate!!

Project Renovate is a ONE day mission trip in your community that reaches out to foster or vulnerable families with projects like deep cleaning a home, landscaping or giving a room a makeover!

Project Renovate is also a fundraiser to support the ministry of The Forgotten Initiative.

Volunteers raise sponsorship for their day of work by sending out fundraising letters (contact us for your fundraising packet.)

100% of the money raised will help The Forgotten Initiative bring joy and purpose to the foster care community all across the nation through service, mentoring, and support initiatives!

How it works:  Volunteer or Make a Donation


  1. Sign Up to get involved or Contact us with questions!
  2. Once you have signed up, we will send you your fundraising packet (includes 30 letters). Send out letters to the people in your sphere of influence who may be interested in sponsoring you.  We encourage you to send those out prior to the project date.
  3. Come on project day ready to serve and show the love of Jesus to those who feel forgotten!
