In-Kind Donations: An Effective Way To Provide New Opportunities to Foster Children

You can support a foster child as an individual, corporate,  or professional sports team. Many foster children in our care are currently unable to afford sports. Sports can play such a significant role in the lives of kids in foster families, so it is essential to find a solution to make it more affordable for them. Do you enjoy a particular skill or hobby? Think about donating your hobby in kind to a foster child in need. In general, in-kind donations involve giving things like tools, experiences, or equipment to foster kids who wouldn’t otherwise have them. In-kind donations are an effective way to provide new opportunities to foster children!

In-Kind Donations: An Effective Way To Provide New Opportunities to Foster Children

Types of In-Kind Donations

The donations in kind could be a tangible good or a memorable experience. It may occasionally include both.

Imagine you are passionate about art and want to make a career. Foster children can experience art while developing healthy coping techniques. You can decide to give a year’s worth of painting courses at your preferred location or tickets to a show at your preferred gallery. To help them get started, you might also contribute your old easel stand and some paint, canvas, and brushes.

Perhaps your child adored the baseball game, but they have outgrown it in favor of other activities. You could give a foster child some gently used, high-quality equipment. It could be unused old bats, baseballs, mitts, cleats, and helmets. Consider funding a local child’s baseball expenses for an entire season if you want to take your in-kind giving to the next level and help them afford to play. Another choice is to give baseball tickets to a nearby game.

Are you a fan of music instead? Think about giving away any gently used equipment and manuals you no longer need. You might also consider purchasing a year’s worth of lessons for your preferred instrument or offer tickets to local symphony performances.
