Circle of Friends
How you can help
Make a commitment to help foster youth in Los Angeles by joining UFC’s Circle of Friends.
Your generosity and dedication will change lives by providing housing, tutoring, career training, internships, counseling, college funds, dorm kits, and much more. Your commitment to join UFC’s Circle of Friends will impact thousands of current and former foster youth — for generations to come.
All donations are tax-deductible. One-time gifts, multi-year commitments and monthly pledges are all accepted. Through a monthly pledge to UFC, you can give more to help foster youth than you might have thought possible - a simple $25 monthly gift adds up to a $300 annual donation. Consider honoring a special occasion or a family member or friend and UFC will send the honoree an acknowledgement card.
