Funds are provided via private donations and fundraisers for the sole use of serving youth within the foster care system. 100% of all donations received by the Children's Trust Fund goes to goods and services that benefit foster youth and their families. The Children’s Trust Fund also benefits from in-kind donations (see below).
Youth residing in Los Angeles County under the supervision of DCFS qualify for assistance from the Children's Trust Fund.
