Fosterful recently received a $295,000 grant, the largest in its history, from the Cowlitz Tribal Foundation Clark County Fund.
“Our children are our future, and the Tribe is committed to giving back in ways that build upon that future for all Clark County residents and their families,” said Luke J. Bridges, Cowlitz Tribal Foundation Clark County Fund Chairman, in the release.
The three-year grant will go toward funding paid permanent staff, continuing volunteer recruitment and building relationships through communities across Clark County, according to the release.
“We are so grateful to have such generous and thoughtful partners in the Cowlitz Tribal Foundation. These funds will allow us to increase our staff capacity and sustain our work in Clark County, serving children in foster care as they navigate some really dark days,” said Sarah Desjarlais, Fosterful executive director, in the release.
