THE MISSION OF THE TIMOTHY TUITION PROGRAM
Assisting Foster Children is Our Sole Focus
The Timothy Tuition Program, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, was created in 2008 in memory of our son, Timothy Leighton Tanner, a Program Service Counselor for foster students in Northern California.
The purpose of this organization is to fulfill everyday personal and educational needs for foster children of every age in Northern California. Through generous donations and grants from around the country we have been able to meet the needs of hundreds of foster children.
The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services estimates there are 20,000
unadopted adolescents each year leaving (emancipated from) the foster care system at the young age of 18, without plans or provisions to transfer legal custody to a relative or alternate caregiver. These students often have no alternative but to reside on the streets without guidance or direction.
The Timothy Tuition Program helps foster students of every age, including emancipated students too! There is absolutely zero discrimination permitted. They can apply for help enrolling in a college or trade school through our application process. The amount we offer is determined by the request and donations available at that particular time. We can also guide them to other funding possibilities.
