Be a Dream Maker!

At age 15, Basir had been in foster care his whole life and dreamt that one day he would have a loving family and a stable home. 

Someone in Basir’s community saw a bright light in the teen and, for Basir, an ordinary connection at school became the path to his dream of a family coming true. 

In Philadelphia alone there are hundreds of children and teens like Basir. Teens need someone to believe in them and their dreams.

With your support, we can make more dreams come true!

Impact Story

Project LifeSet

When Trevor aged out of foster care, he had little to no support and was unsure of where he was going to live. He wanted to become a pilot, but didn’t know how to. With the help of LifeSet, Trevor was able to gain the skills needed to become independent and enroll in aviation school. He is currently training to be a pilot, something he had only dreamed about before.

When you donate to Turning Points, you help programs like LifeSet provide essential services to youth in the most vulnerable places.

Planned Gift or Bequests

Bequests cost you nothing during your life. If there is a mission close to your heart, such as Turning Points for Children, you can honor it in your will.

Giving through your Donor Advised Fund is quick, simple, and can help transform lives.

What is a Donor Advised Fund (DAF)? A DAF is a philanthropic giving vehicle that provides an immediate tax benefit to you and allows you to recommend grants or gifts to non-profits like Turning Points for Children.
