Donor “Bill of Rights”

By January 10, 2014July 18th, 2017Donor-focused, General

A short 2 ½ years ago, I joined the team at Utah Foster Care and it’s been quite a learning experience. Foster families are amazing. The children in foster care, who have been through the most difficult experiences you can imagine, are lovable and sweet.

Our team continues to build on the success of previous years, and is trying to become more well-known in the community so that the dire need for new foster families is recognized. At the same time, every day we are trying to clear up misperceptions about foster parenting and the reasons why Utahns choose to become foster parents.

We have a GREAT group of supporters who are involved as donors, advocates, and volunteers and that is why we take the Donor Bill of Rights very seriously. It’s a promise to donors that when you invest in Utah Foster Care’s programs, families, and children, you and your gift will be treated with the utmost respect and care possible.

The Bill of Rights ideas relate to being informative, trustworthy, transparent, honest, confidential, truthful, and with integrity. Do an Internet search for “Donor Bill of Rights” for the details, or email me at and I will be happy to send you a copy.

Thanks to everyone who has trusted us and invested to help children in foster care. I promise you the full set of rights listed in the Donor Bill of Rights.
