Individuals, foundations, and businesses can help SOAR achieve its goals through a variety of avenues. Whether you decide to participate in a specific activity or make a long-term commitment, when you get involved with SOAR you will be making a lifelong impact on foster youth.
We rely heavily on generous donations from individuals to provide our services at no cost to the participating foster youths and their families. We actively seek grants and contributions from trusts, foundations, and businesses with the hope that our innovative, cost-effective, and thoughtful program can be expanded to serve more youths. Your potentially tax-deductible contribution can help us make a difference in the lives of the foster youth we serve. To donate, please go to Donate Now.
In-kind donations of goods and services help us keep our costs down. These donations allow us to spend more dollars for services provided to our young people. If you can donate one or more items on our Wish List, please contact email@example.com. Because our needs can change as we receive donations, please contact us before making an in-kind donation.
