Adoption Fundraising Organizations & Resources

Exploring different ways to finance your adoption? We’ve gathered a list of popular adoption fundraising organizations here!

Grants and low-interest loans are a great way to fund your adoption, but often, you can’t rely on them alone. Thankfully, countless resources exist to help families offset the cost of adoption through creative and community-based projects. In fact, many families are able to cover a significant portion of their adoption fees and expenses by raising money independently.
