Utah Foster Care
Utah Foster Care’s Wishing Well Fund provides financial support so that the “wishes” of children in foster care can come true. Here is a true story about the Utah Foster Care Wishing Well Fund.
Jordan was 16, new into foster care, in a new school in the middle of the semester. Working hard to get good grades, he pursued his interest in music; his motivation soared when he found his natural talent. He secured a spot on his high school’s chorus team with an exciting trip to Washington planned later in the year.
Jordan had missed all of the fundraising opportunities for the $650 per student trip because of the school transfer. His foster mom wished she could have paid for him to go, but it was impossible to afford it. What a huge relief it was for her to hear about Utah Foster Care’s Wishing Well Fund. The ‘wish’ funds (in this case, $300 toward the trip) were sent directly to the school so Jordan could go on the trip.
Build their confidence, give them a skill, help them make a friend, and feel normal. Normal. That’s the goal. For 7 years, your gifts have made wishes come true but there are always more requests than dollars available. The average wish costs $190. Your gift will make the seemingly impossible happen.
