Why Support the Foundation?

There are thousands of reasons to support the Foundation. In fact, there are nearly 8,000 of them with names like Grace, Sarah, DeAndre, Tyler. All of these children have been placed with loving adoptive families because of the support from donors and the Wendy’s Wonderful Kids program. But so much is left to be done as more than 150,000 children are waiting to be adopted from foster care in the U.S. and Canada. Your Partnership and financial support allow Wendy’s Wonderful Kids adoption recruiters to continue searching for families for these children who desperately need and want them.

Your support of the Foundation can change everything for a child waiting to be adopted. A supportive family means opportunities like graduating from high school and attending college. For the Marris children, it also meant having grandparents for their children and a line of support to carry them into adulthood.

Give Now

Giving to the Foundation allows our adoption recruiters to find forever homes for children waiting in foster care and continues our vital awareness programs.

Our Beliefs

As we work together to raise awareness and support for foster care adoption,
the Foundation remains dedicated to our critical core beliefs:


Every child deserves a safe, loving and permanent family.


No child should linger in foster care or leave the system without a permanent family.


Every child is adoptable.


We hope you will continue to join us with your support.
