A Campaign to Support Stories About YOU, our Readers.

This spring, rather than gearing up for our annual mountaineering trip with former foster youth, Fostering Media Connections is launching our For the Community campaign to inspire a movement among our readers.

Instead of just elevating the voices of youth, this year we will lift up the voices of parents, kinship caregivers, judges, lawyers, siblings, clerks, social workers, probation officers, nonprofit case managers and more, to paint a more complete picture of the child welfare system at large.

This campaign will support our core work of bringing the community together and telling stories that would otherwise go untold – and we have already raised $10,000 in matching funds, so your donation can go twice as far!

This means telling stories for the voices of our community:

We are asking you to support FMC’s sustained focus on covering the vibrant and dedicated community that supports vulnerable children, youth and families. Your donation will help us unearth the stories of our readers and community, the stories YOU want to make sure are told.
