Did you know that most foster children are often denied many normal “rights of passage” such as attending a prom or purchasing yearbooks and class rings? These “normal” yet very special times in a young person’s life are just unattainable dreams for those living in foster care.

Financial donations to the Kathryn A. Basile Foster A Dream Foundation help to make these everyday, but very special experiences possible, helping to turn unfulfilled dreams into reality. Your donations provide these experiences and many more such as:

Participating in a team sport
Attending school field trips and special events
Taking swim or music lessons
Uniforms / Prom Gowns
Senior cap & gown
Graduation pictures
Class rings


Through the generosity of our donors, we have also been able to provide certain of our grant recipients with important “next step” education and college-related items such as laptop computers and software.

These kinds of opportunities should be part of every young person’s life, but often children and young adults in foster care do not have the resources required. Basic, positive experiences and opportunities like these help to build self-esteem, strength of character, and confidence.


Possessing these qualities will undoubtedly help to eliminate the “risk” factor and replace it with educated, productive and accomplished young adults.

All monetary contributions to the Foster A Dream Foundation are Tax-Deductible and 100% of every dollar goes to the needs of foster children.

Thank you for your support!

One of the most important wishes Kathryn A. Basile had was to establish a charitable foundation that would serve the needs of children in foster homes.

She did make that happen by providing the initial funding and the establishment of the Kathryn A. Basile Foster A Dream Foundation.

Together with the help of caring individuals, corporate donors and partner organizations, we can significantly improve the quality of life for these young people, creating the opportunity for brighter and more promising futures for them.
