While school may look different this year, First Place for Youth is providing the same caring support as always to help our young people achieve in their classes and beyond. Your gift ensures young people in foster care have access to vital education supports as they identify their goals, build academic success and career readiness, and rise to reach their full potential.

When you donate to the First Place Education Fund, you can direct your gift to support one of three identified areas of need:

  • Postsecondary coaching services and supplies
    Support First Place staff in providing youth with education coaching and ensure they have the materials for targeted workshops and trainings.
  • Learning technology for youth
    Help us provide young people with high quality computers and reliable high-speed internet hotspots so they can access online classes and complete assignments at home.
  • School supplies for youth
    Ensure our young people have all the basics for studying, including desks and chairs, lamps, desk organizers, planners, pens, notebooks, and other general supplies.

Or you can choose “greatest need” to let us apply your gift where it will do the most good.
