Our little boy was worried about going home. I asked why he was feeling worried, and he told me he was excited to return to his parents but he didn't want to leave the clothes and especially the warm coat he had received while in care. I told him he would take all his clothes with him and he was so excited he cried.Laurie SumnerUtah Foster Parent
Team sports are expensive, as every parent knows. UFC’s Wishing Well Fund is entirely funded by donations from community individuals and businesses. Our son learned hard work, dedication, and consistency as he attended team practice and conditioning. Working with the other players formed bonds that have carried into adulthood, and have helped heal trauma he'd experienced.JennieUtah Foster and Adoptive Parent

Donor Advised Fund
An Effective Way to Give
A donor-advised fund (DAF) is a centralized charitable account. It allows charitably inclined individuals, families, and businesses to make tax-deductible charitable donations of cash, publicly-traded stock, and, in some cases, certain illiquid assets, to a public charity that sponsors a DAF program.
