TFI Advocate FAQs
Are TFI Advocates paid?
TFI Advocates are volunteer representatives of The Forgotten Initiative.
Will I have to fundraise as a TFI Advocate?
TFI offers its coaching, resources, and community to TFI Advocates at no cost! TFI Advocates do however raise funds for local ministry work.
As an example, a TFI Advocate might find that there is a high need for foster parents who are willing to support teenagers. At no cost to the TFI Advocate, they would receive coaching to brainstorm how to host an effective event to generate interest, custom social media graphics to promote the event, and connection to another TFI Advocate who has hosted a similar event. The TFI Advocate might raise funds for food for the event and a goodie bag for each attendee.
