2019 Foster Festival Sponsorship Opportunities


For the past 9 years, Arizonans for Children has been conducting a free festival for kids in foster care in partnership with Enchanted Island Amusement Park. In Arizona alone, there are over 15,000 children in the foster care system with approximately 600 being removed from their homes each month. Of the homeless population, 27% have spent time in foster care. By the time foster youths age out of the system, 25% of them will be incarcerated before they reach 20 years of age. Only 54% of foster children will earn a high school diploma and less than 3% will earn a college degree. The stats are alarming and we are requesting your support.

Arizonans for Children, Inc., a 501(c)(3) non-profit corporation, [Tax ID # 02-0651198] raises money to support the most vulnerable, disadvantaged and needy group of children in our society – foster children who have been abused, maltreated or neglected and removed from their homes by Department of Child Safety.

In partnership with Enchanted Island Amusement Park in February 2019 -

Free and Fabulous Foster Festival

Enchanted Island Amusement Park
1202 W. Encanto Blvd
Phoenix, AZ.

Last year 3,211 people attended this free event.  We expect this event to be even bigger than last year. Hundreds of volunteers and vendors will participate.
The smiles on the children’s faces were something to behold. I overheard one child say,” Dad, this was the best day ever.” Children in foster care so rarely get to experience a day like Fabulous Foster Festival. It is a day that they will never forget.

We are hoping that you will help us by sponsoring an invoice for the event or by helping us feed the children at the festival. Your donation will make this event possible and it will bring joy to the abused, neglected and abandoned children who are in the foster care system in Maricopa.
