Matching Challenge

The first $1,500 will be matched.

Help Change Local Foster Children’s Lives Forever

What can you do for a child who has no one? If you are interested in adopting or mentoring a young person in need or simply supporting the program financially, visit Kidsave.org.

Over the next three years, Kidsave will expand in Los Angeles and throughout California, where the need for families for older kids is critical.

To train another county on the program next year and serve 100 kids through Weekend Miracles in L.A., Kidsave needs $150,000 to hire a full-time staff person and execute communications and family recruitment campaigns. The goal is to recruit at least 100 qualified families in Los Angeles to meet the demand for local older kids and teens looking for a family, a support system, someone in their corner.

Thanks to The Giving List’s novel matching program, all donations up to $1,500 will be matched. 


Kidsave helps find forever families for older kids in foster care and orphanages so they can thrive in a home filled with love, support and encouragement.

The work done by Kidsave to find families for older foster youth is humbling and awe-inspiring. Starting with the most basic human interaction – connection – they are building opportunities that will change the course of lives, as mine was. I was adopted when very young and raised by loving parents. They not only rescued me from an unknown future, they gave me two sisters in whose eyes I have always felt seen, understood, and safe. I can tell you, to adopt a child, at any age, is nothing short of saving a life. I salute Kidsave for its work to literally save kids.
