The Ticket to Dream Foundation™, a recognized 501(c)3 non-profit, was created in 2005 to make a positive impact on the lives of thousands foster children in need. Through our program, we provide both in-kind and monetary contributions to non-profit organizations throughout the Northwest. Our purpose is to support worthy charitable causes and non-profits, with particular emphasis on charities related to foster children.

100 percent of your monetary donations, after credit card processing fees, go to carefully chosen foster care partners throughout the Northwest. These outstanding partners use 100 percent of funds received to provide foster youth with much needed essential items during each drive. Donors who would like to support a certain donation drive but may not have the time to shop can still participate and make an impact.

Throughout the year, we hold six in-kind donation drives in the community and at our more than 80 stores: Pajama Drive, Shoe Drive, Clothing Drive, School Drive, Coat Drive and Toy Drive. Each drive collects several thousand essential items for foster youth each year and raises thousands of dollars. After each drive, donations are distributed to foster care partners throughout the Northwest.

With your help, thousands of foster youth will have the school supplies they need to succeed in school, a special gift this holiday season and properly fitting shoes and clothing throughout the year. These simple gifts can introduce new found hope into the lives of children who have faced many challenges in their lifetimes.
