Susan White's Story
Help me change foster care!
I support Fostering Great Ideas because I believe in their work on behalf of children in foster care (I also happen to be married to the founder & CEO, and my best friend!). Over the past 10 years, Fostering Great Ideas has brought stability to over 1500 children through mentoring, sibling visits, tutoring, foster parent support, and family reunification.
Help me fund an organization I’m proud to support. It's so easy to give - you buy $10 raffle ticket(s) and all proceeds go to Fostering Great Ideas. Raffle drawings begin on October 10 and you could be a winner!

David White, CEO & Founder of Fostering Great Ideas
“I knew all the stats, and they were abysmal... I knew our community could do significantly more for these particular children. In everything we do, we keep the child front and center.”
Marie, Moms Matter Participant
“It’s a safe place, it’s home… It doesn’t matter if it’s your first visit or your 50th visit - you’re going to leave feeling empowered.”
Lonnie Alverson, Mentor
“Everyone needs someone right there to let them know they’re loved, they’re cared for… [We are] the hands and feet to these children and teenagers… I hope this piece encourages you to extend a hand for these children to grab hold.”
Tori Shuler and Casandra Misner
“The hardest part of foster care is being separated from each other. [My sister] is my biggest protector, my greatest comfort…. Siblings are forever, and Sib-Link makes sure that siblings get to see each other.”
Sierra Burns, College Fellows Participant
“College Fellows gives us resources and support systems, and we desperately need that. The support we are granted and the opportunities given to us is amazing… They have helped me navigate college.”
WINNER UPDATE: The Barretts have decided to re-gift this win, in order to raise more for the cause... More details to follow!!!!!
Paul Gaeto, Mentor & Donor
“What I want most for kids in foster care is... normalcy, relationships, loving family, a role model, and educational support... I support Fostering Great Ideas because they provide all these things.”
Jessica Barley, Mentor & Adoptive Mom
“It all started with the small step of signing up for mentor training. Pretty quickly, our relationship became one of the most special parts of my life… My encouragement to you [is]… move, just take a small step, because you never know if that one step can change the life of someone else, or even your very own.”
Lesley Fonokalafi, Tutor
“I began tutoring as a way to give back… I want [these kids] to know there’s good in the world. It’s worth it when you see the light bulb go off. When you see a kid start to want to learn, that’s worth it.”
Aloysius Tank, Mentor
“These kids, they are not in their home with their families, and they need people who are just there for them. [My mentee] knows that I’ve got his back... When the crap hits the fan, I’m still going to be there for him.”
Sara Barr, Foster Parent & Care2Foster Community Member
“The hope that I have for children in my care is that I can love and care for them well enough to alter their trajectory for the rest of their lives.”
