I'm thinking of fostering but ... I would REALLY love to introduce a raw diet to them, however realistically I know that once they get to new home or even back to the shelter, they'd be fed dry. Should I even bother to try? And if I do, how can I introduce that kind of consistency with new parents? Should I make a brochure on raw feeding? And does shelters even like that I would be raw feeding?

I'd probably do a raw/canned mix for the foster kittens. Raw can boost immunities, help growing bodies and keep everyone tiptop shape for adoption days. Keeping the canned in there will allow new adopters to keep the diet similar (you can always claim the kittens get terrible stool on dry - and in my experience once a cannedfed only cat gets a snack of kibble the litter box could KILL you so this would help your case). However, this means that the kittens may be slightly less adoptable - but if they're young, I don't think it would make too much of a difference.
