1. Are you members and serve in your local church?
Do you understand that the church is not a building but a community of people? In 1 Timothy 5, Paul describes the church as people dedicated to doing whatever it takes to reach out and help others.
2.Do you use social media platforms?
Social media is one of the best ways to communicate your needs to your family and friends. Without these platforms we are unable to connect and communicate with your potential donors.
If you can say yes to the questions above you are in the right place!
Our process is simple. We help you create a fundraising page to invite your family and friends to help fundraise on your behalf. As the adopting family, you will also be a part of hosting a fundraiser towards the end of your adoption fundraising goal. To be successful, it is critical that you not share that you are adopting on social media until your page is up and running. We also ask that you do not sign up with any other fundraising platforms. We know what it takes for a family to be successful. Allow us to help lead your family in this season.
• When can we apply?
You can apply as long as you are currently working with a 501(c)3 approved adoption agency. Yes, this means even if you are in the process of your home study, you can still apply.
• Is there a waitlist?
Yes, once you submit your application, one of our team members will reach out and let you know when you would start fundraising with us.
• How long does it take to be approved and start fundraising?
Once you reserve your spot, one of our team members will reach out to assist you in setting up your first meeting, where you will then get access to create your fundraising page. Typically it will take 2-3 weeks to complete your pre-launch checklist (all the things you need to do before launching).
• How long will it take to raise my funds?
If you follow your fundraising plan and do the things, we ask of you. Your family can raise 25-30k within 3 months of launching and 35k-50k within 6-7months.
• What should I do/not do while waiting to be approved?
Please be patient. We understand the adoption process and the cost of adoption. While you are waiting for your fundraising plan and page, please do not share on social media you are adopting, host any fundraisers or sign-up with any other fundraising platforms. What you can do is pray that God would open the hearts of people in your community, as well as research fundraising ideas.
