About Us What Others Are Saying / Our Sponsors

Furthermore, Charity Navigator, one of the nation’s leading charity evaluators, has consistently given us their highest possible rating. This is due in large part to our outstanding fundraising efficiency; More than 91 cents of every dollar donated goes directly to support FC2S programs and youth.

Our long list of established sponsors, from FedEx to Oracle can attest to the incredible partnerships we’ve created in supporting thousands of foster youth. From Alliant Credit Union’s generous support through scholarships, internships, and gift cards to the thousands of cookies donated by Otis Spunkmeyer to our college care packages, together with our partners we provide foster youth with consistent and tangible support.

Here’s what our partners have to say:

“Alliant Credit Union and the Alliant Credit Union Foundation have been proud to support Foster Care to Success (FCS), and their important work on behalf of former foster children. FC2S has a long and impressive record of helping to transition youth from foster care to productive, fulfilling adulthood, consistent with Alliant’s commitment to promoting economic empowerment and self-sufficiency.” - David Mooney, President/CEO, Alliant Credit Union

“Southwest Airlines understands the value education and mentoring has on youth.  Serving as the Official Airline of Foster Care to Success by providing airline tickets for student internship travel and airline snacks for college care packages is a natural fit to continue to impact our communities.” -  Karen Price-Ward, Community Affairs & Grassroots Manager, Southwest Airlines Co.

“Partnering with Foster Care to Success to host a care-package-filling event turned out to be an incredibly meaningful team building exercise for our staff. Everyone left having learned something about the challenges foster youth face. And at the end of the day, everyone felt good knowing a student – perhaps one who had never received a care package before in his or her life – would soon be receiving one of their care packages in the mail.” – Dave Horton,  Global Head, Hilton Hotels & Resorts

“We enjoyed being able to offer guidance and contacts to those [FC2S students] who are looking to start here. It is wonderful to give these young people the opportunity to network, engage on Capitol Hill, etc.” - Kim Phillips, Federal Affairs Coordinator, Salt River Project
