Ways To Donate


Giving should be entered into in just the same way as investing. Giving is investing.

There are a variety of ways to support foster youth aging out of the foster care system through Stepping Forward LA. We appreciate your generosity!

Stepping Forward LA does not receive government funding - none of this would be possible without your support.

Your recurring donation will help support our education programs directed at current foster youth still in foster care. Your donation allows us to continue to expand and offer these programs throughout the year.

 Every December, Stepping Forward LA gives each young adult a gift card that they can spend on anything they need.  Some treat a friend to dinner and a movie while others will buy groceries or pay off their phone bill.  Your generous donation would sponsor one of these gifts.

Every month our volunteer chef, LeMar cooks, teaches 8 - 10 current and former foster youth how to cook.  They learn kitchen safety, knife skills, all about how to cook vegetables, preparing meat, working as a team and time management.  Your generous contribution will sponsor one month of cooking lessons for a cohort of foster youth.  

On the first Saturday of every month, Stepping Forward LA hosts an event for our current and former foster youth.  We share a meal, provide workshops with speakers, organize activities, and celebrate birthdays.  Your donation will allow us to continue providing these events.

In order to achieve independence, it is important that foster youth receive job training. Stepping Forward LA offers a short-term paid internship to provide them with hands-on job experience. Throughout their internship, they learn the skills they need to successfully get a permanent job and know how to keep it. Your generous contribution sponsors one of these internships and is paid directly to the young adult.
