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. Read about some of the wonderful folks who have made donations!
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.
Please note that the amounts suggested are suggestions only. Any donation, big or small, is a huge help.
The winter holidays can be a difficult time for youth in and from government care. Many young people feel a lack of the connection and belonging that are a big part of this season for other folks. Remind a young person that they are supported and cared for during the holiday season by donating to Holiday Care Kits! Holiday Care Kits include items for personal care, fun, entertainment, warmth, treats, culture and self care. Our goal is to send a Holiday Care Kits to 500 young people!
$50 will cover the cost of one kit, but any amount helps!
BC Child and Youth in Care Week celebrates and honours BC's incredible children and youth in and from care through Recognition Awards, celebrations and raising awareness!
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.
$200 would pay for art classes for one youth.
$35 would cover Serving it Right certification.
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. Explore our website to find out how we work to improve the lives of youth in and from government care in BC!
