We’ve rounded up a list of the best foster families freebies and discounts! Free stuff for a foster family, children in foster care, and foster youth!
Foster Families Freebies and Discounts
Stores that offer deals and freebies that could be beneficial to you.
First off, you are amazing! Thank you for the good you are doing for this world.
You are making a difference in other people’s lives and we need more people like you! Now the community wants to say thanks too!
The first freebie you’ll want to grab!
Wondering what places retail, shopping, travel, and more offer freebies or discounts?
If you are foster parents or adoptive foster parents these discounts should work for you!
However, please check with your local business to be sure. Restrictions may apply!
Also, to be taken to any of the free offers or discounts below just click on the underlined hyperlink preceding the offer.
Amazon Prime (HOT!)
Did you know that Amazon will give a discount to foster families?
In fact, it’s true (you don’t have to be on government assistance). If you have an adoptive child or long-term foster children who have a Medicaid card then you may apply!
As a result, Amazon Prime will be $5.99 a month.
Equally important the discount has a 48-month limit! But that’s still a nice discount!
Free Stuff for Foster Parents
If you want to save money on food check out Ibotta it is a FREE app for your cell phone that gives you money back after you shop (even through Amazon.)
If you go to my link here you will get $10 just for signing up! Just be sure to submit your first receipt within 30 days! Great to cash in for the holiday season!
Don’t forget referral code: toqlbsu

Deals and Discounts
Check your local Once Upon a Child Store to see if they offer a discount for foster families.
It could range from 10% to 20% discount depending on the location. It’s a fantastic place to build a wardrobe for kids at a great price!
Now, I have not been able to use this offer myself yet.
However, I have heard that other people have received a discount at the Good Will store.
It’s certainly worth looking into. Every little bit helps. 🙂
Check with your local YMCA for a Free Membership or free lessons for foster families. When you speak with the customer representative just ask for ymca discounts for foster parents or if they offer a ymca foster family discount.
Again, it depends on the location but it’s worth looking into.
Zoos and Museum Discount for Foster Family
As well, local Zoos and Museums offer discounts to foster families!
If you’re headed out to see the animals or look at the beautiful art?
It’s a great way to find savings and enjoy the day out with the kiddos!
Royal Family Kids Camp is a Christian camp centered around Foster Children!
“The primary purpose of Royal Family KIDS camps is to give foster children ages 6-12 a week of positive memories and royal treatment in a Christian camp environment.” – Royal Family Kids Website
Student Loan Forgiveness Available for Foster Parents
Also, have you heard of the Public Service Forgiveness Program?
It’s a student loan forgiveness program for foster parents.
I believe it consists of after 10 years of consistent payments you’ll be eligible for loan forgiveness.
However, you can find more information about that here!

Disney Foster Parent Discount
Unfortunately, at this time, Walt Disney World or Disney Land doesn’t offer a discount for theme park tickets for a foster family!
However, tickets are priced lower for children 3-10.
As well, the Not so Scary Halloween Party and Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party have slightly lower-priced tickets versus regular admission if that helps.
Tip: Disney Springs is free to get into for anyone and free parking! Get access to lots of stores, restaurants, and entertainment there!
We love visiting Disney Springs (use to be Downtown Disney); each year, we travel to Orlando!
The above picture is my kiddos playing in the water that Stich spits out of his mouth like a fountain in front of the World of Disney store at Disney Springs!
Check out the T-Rex restaurant if you get a chance too. The kids will love it!
Before I get off here, I want to say, “Thank you!” one more time! Thank you for saying, I want to be a foster parent. You are an inspiration. Every day you change the world and have the utmost gratitude for you. Thank you!
I hope you can use these deals to save money, or perhaps you know this could be of financial assistance for foster parents in your area. Please feel free to share it and include the foster care number. Sometimes your agency will know of discounts or free stuff for your local area. Best of luck in all you do!
