Orphan Foundation of America

America’s College Fund for Foster Youth

aka Foster Care to Success   |   Cleveland, OH   |  www.fc2success.org

Mission

We are the oldest and largest national nonprofit organization working solely with college bound foster youth. Since 1981, over 50,000 foster youth have received information, advice, support or funding from Foster Care to Success, helping them to transition from care to adulthood through education. We help by providing tuition grants as well as book money, living stipends and emergency funding for the unexpected expenses that could derail the most dedicated student on a tight budget. Our work has been acknowledged by Congress, the Department of Health and Human Services, and every White House Administration since that of George Bush, Sr. in 1989, including recognition at a National Mentoring Month reception hosted by President Obama.

What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

The Orphan Foundation's programs include the National Scholarship Fund, which grants scholarships up to $8,000 annually to orphans and former foster youth as they pursue college degrees or vocational training. OFA also offers Sponsored Scholarships, whereby a sponsor directly underwrites the college or vocational school training for a particular student, and the CharityWorks Scholars program for youth in the Washington DC metropolitan area. All scholarship recipients are matched with an "e-mentor", who is an adult already established in the student's field of interest, with whom the student will engage in an on-line relationship. All scholarship students also receive semi-anonymous care packages four times a year.

Population(s) Served

ETV is a federally-funded, state-administered initiative to provide funding and support for post-secondary education. Eligible students may receive grants of up to $5,000 per year for up to five years or until their 23rd birthday. ETV funds can be combined with other grants or scholarships to minimize or eliminate the need for student loans.
