Make A Donation to FCS

​​​For Children’s Sake of Virginia welcomes donations throughout the year. We are always in need of both monetary donations and items for our beloved foster families and children.




For Children’s Sake (FCS) is a private non-profit corporation founded in 1997 and incorporated in Virginia in 2002.  FCS provides an array of services to adults, families and children in our community.  Services include: adult mental health support, therapeutic and emergency foster care, pre and post adoption support, community based services, supervised visitation, mentoring and outpatient therapy.  We have two locations to serve our clients in Chantilly and Woodbridge VA.  FCS has a culturally diverse staff that is professional and well trained in a multitude of human services fields.  FCS believes in giving back to our profession and community and has always provided training to area colleges for students in need of practicum experience.

FCS trains and supports a culturally diverse and professional group of therapeutic foster parents who are all dedicated to the well being of children and families.  They have been the backbone of our agency and are a resource we greatly value.

Don’t use Amazon, or want to donate something from somewhere else? Here are the other things we’re looking for!

Gift Cards

The monthly stipend for Foster Parents is generally not sufficient to cover basic living costs for the foster children.  The Foster Parents usually pay out-of-pocket for these items.  FCSVA welcomes gift cards for gas, clothing and grocery stores to help these generous and loving people.

Items for Little Ones

When children are removed from their homes, they leave with minimal belongings, often in two plastic trash bags.  FCSVA tries to give the foster parents and the children basic goods immediately.  However, we are in desperate need of these items on an ongoing basis.  Please help our children by donating the following new items:

  • Diapers of all sizes

  • Personal wipes

  • Pacifiers and teething toys

  • Clothing

  • Board games

  • Personal hygiene products

  • Toys

Please note: we cannot accept used items at this time.

Items for Older Children (up to 21)

As with the smaller children, these kids also leave with their belongings in two plastic bags.  Please help us bring comfort to the children in our care by giving the following new items:

  • New clothing

  • Backpacks

  • Personal hygiene items

  • School supplies

  • Arts and crafts supplies

  • Board games

  • Toys

Please note: we cannot accept used items at this time.
