Why Should I Donate? The Back-to-School Fair is an annual event presented by Foster Kids Charity, with key support from businesses, community organizations and individuals. This year, as families continue to face economic challenges, we want every child who visits the fair to go home with a backpack. Your contributions are essential in helping us meet this goal. Funds are also greatly needed to support our charity mission. Donations will go towards purchasing clothing and items in need for children in Foster care. In addition to funding, donors may wish to contribute door prizes or offer children’s activities. A range of sponsorship levels is available. In gratitude for your support of our students and the Back-to-School Fair, donors will be recognized in a variety of ways.
