Every Little Bit Makes a Difference

Utah Foster Care operates the Wishing Well with the generous support of private donors, in order to help state-licensed foster parents pay for common childhood activities or to purchase needed items not covered under state funding for the children placed in their care. If special needs funds through DCFS have been used or are not available, you, your RFC, or the child’s caseworker may request up to $500 per child annually using the form below.


What funds are used for...

Among other things, Wishing Well funds may be used by state-licensed foster parents to provide the following to the children they foster:

  • music, dance, or karate lessons
  • vacation expenses*
  • team fees or sporting equipment
  • eye contacts, school rings, yearbooks, or formal wear for prom

* Vacation requests are subject to limitations.

Fill out a separate application per child.
