Thank you for a great evening!

Oh!  What a Night!!!

IS Leading the Way!

 from the bottom of our hearts for making our largest annual fundraiser a success!

With your help, the 2017 ISF Gala set a new fund-raising record and ISF will be able to reach even more students in 2018!

Each year 25,000 young people in the US age out of foster care.  The vast majority of them lead very different lives than the majority of youth that turn 18.  Instead of going off to college and starting to train for a successful future, these youth often end up homeless, jobless, on drugs, and pregnant. And so the cycle begins all over again for the next generation.

ISF seeks to break this cycle by catching youth as they age of the system and giving them the resources and the support to go to college and become future leaders in society, capable of giving back to their community.  The youth we serve work very hard, maintaining good grades, working with a mentor, doing required reading, often while holding down a job as well as going to school.

This gala is the financial life blood of our organization, and without the support of all of you we could not do what we do!
