Madeleine's GIVING TUESDAY - FAMILY FELLOWSHIP

Giving love and support to aged-out foster youth to chase their dreams
$2,065

19 people have donated $2,065 towards this campaign's $5,000 Goal

Most of you are well aware that I'm passionate about foster care and adoption, specifically for the kids on the brink of aging out of foster care, so the Family Fellowship program is very special to me. If reunification doesn't happen and their path doesn't lead to them being adopted, we can at least give them the love and support that a family might have given them to chase their dreams.

This Giving Tuesday, I’m joining Together We Rise in their goal to raise $200,000 to support the Family Fellowship program, the largest college scholarship in the nation for youth in foster care. It is important to me that all foster youth have access and support to quality educational experiences, specifically those who were not adopted and have now aged out of foster care.

The vision of the Family Fellowship is to change the legacy of aged-out foster youth by transforming the way they are supported through their college journey. The Family Fellowship is built on a foundation of scholars from all across the country attending the nation’s leading colleges and universities. Currently, only 3% of all foster youth will complete a college degree. However, students of the Family Fellowship program have a 95% graduation rate.

By donating to my Giving Tuesday campaign, you are helping foster youth achieve their education goals and pave the way to a brighter future.
