Donors may make a tax-deductible donation toward the adoption of a specific child through Holt International. Funds will be used to advocate for the child and recruit a family equipped and prepared to care for the child’s specific needs. The donation will be converted into a Special Blessings grant, which may offset some of the fees associated with adoption in the event that the child’s potential family cannot afford the full cost of an adoption.
Donations cannot be accepted on behalf of particular families.
Donations cannot be refunded, regardless of which family the child is matched with, whether in their country of birth or internationally.
If the donation cannot be used toward the adoption fees for the child originally specified for the donation, the funds will be pooled with other donations in the Special Needs Adoption Fund and used to help another child with special needs come home to a family with financial need. Holt International chooses the recipients of SNAF and Special Blessings grants.
