Ways to Give

Parents in BC want to give their kids the best possible opportunities to achieve their goals and lead full, happy lives. As British Columbians, we are all parents for the young people in the care of our government, and our support can make a huge difference. With funds raised from generous donors like you, we can continue to do more to give these young people an equal opportunity to follow their dreams.

Where will your donation go?

It’s up to you! You can donate any amount to any of our Program Funds or to our General Fund. Donations to the General Fund will be put toward the program or service with the highest need, or could help us start a program or service that addresses a new need.

Program Funds

Please note that the amounts suggested are suggestions only. Any donation, big or small, is a huge help.

Dream Fund

The Dream Fund (you guessed it) supports youth to achieve their dreams. Young people have used their Dream Fund awards for anything from tuition to a post-secondary school, job skills training like Foodsafe and Quickbooks to self-care and passion projects like yoga or photography classes. Any amount helps!

Youth Retreat Fund

Youth come together from all across the province to learn life skills, have fun, build lasting friendships, and influence the work of the organization.
$300 would cover the camp fees for one youth.
$50 would cover the travel costs for a youth who needs support to get to a retreat.

Holiday Dinner Grant Fund

Holiday Dinner Grants provide funds for youth to get together and celebrate with their community during the holiday season.
$500 will provide a full grant for a holiday dinner.
$25 would cover the cost of a turkey or gift stocking.

Power Pages Fund

Power Pages is a magazine where youth can publish their art, stories, articles, photography, opinions, poetry and anything else they want to share.
$20-$50 would provide an honorarium to a youth whose work was published in Power Pages.

Local Networks Fund

Fed Local Networks are groups in communities around BC where young people can have fun, learn skills and build supportive connections.
$250-$500 could cover the cost of a life skills workshop in one of our locals. If ten people donated $50, a local could run a workshop that supports youth to learn about cooking or budgeting.
