Promises2Kids was thankful to have been selected as the beneficiary of the 2022 Loan Signing System Conference last month. Over 1,000 attended the conference put on by Loan Signing System owner, Promises2Kids Board of Directors member, and major donor, Mark Wills.

Former foster youth, Caleb, shared how the Guardian Scholars program has impacted his life. Promises2Kids CEO, Tonya Torosian was also present to gratefully receive the generous donation.

Thanks to Loan Signing System and their attendees, over $20,000 was raised for San Diego’s foster youth.

Foster Youth, Ivy, Explores the Museum with the Support of Foster Funds

Ivy (3) has been in foster care nearly her whole life. She entered care at 3 weeks old due to a dangerous environment caused by her mother’s substance abuse. She lives with a caregiver and several foster siblings.

Like many kids her age, Ivy is a curious and inquisitive girl who is interested in learning and playing. Museums are the perfect places for her to explore, learn and grow. That’s why her caregiver approached us when Ivy expressed interest in the San Diego Air & Space Museum. Through Foster Funds, we were able to provide annual passes.  

Together with her foster siblings, Ivy savored a memorable day enjoying all the museum has to offer. Ivy especially enjoyed taking in the sights that allowed her imagination to roam to the moon and back.

Supporters like you allow us to continue making a difference in the lives of San Diego’s foster youth!
