"Out Of The Box" Fundraising For Your Adoption

Many organizations exist to financially assist adoptive families. Below you will find a list of such organizations that you can follow up with directly. IFS does not represent any of these organizations and does not speak for their procedures, the accuracy of this information or their claims and/or business practices. This is not an exhaustive list. 

OneLess Ministries – ONEless believes that one less orphan in the world means one less child who is vulnerable to human trafficking. When a child is adopted, they have the opportunity to grow and thrive in a loving environment. Oneless helps to cover some adoption expense by providing a onetime grant to approved families who are adopting.

Katelyn’s Fund Orphan Ministry – Through the donations from various families, churches, and communities, Katelyn’s Fund has been given the opportunity to provide grants to several Christian families.

Hebrew Free Loan Association – HFLA provides loans of up to $10,000 for Jewish families who wish to adopt.

Ordinary Hero – Ordinary Hero will help establish a fund for adoptive families so people can donate to their adoption. You can now set up your own fundraising web page, giving donors the opportunity to give online to your adoption on the spot. You will have the opportunity to customize the page with your personal story, pictures, and even video.

Oxford Adoption Foundation – Provides low-interest loans for families who have exhausted other financial options.

A Child Waits – Loans are available for up to $10,000 for one child. They assist families who can financially support a child and repay the loan, but who do not have the current funds to adopt.

Military Adoption Reimbursement Program – The military non-recurring program is a one-time subsidy program for full-time military personnel. Adopting couples can receive up to $2,000 reimbursement on adoption expenses for one child or $5,000 for siblings. Eligible personnel should complete DD Form 2673 (Reimbursement For Adoption Expense). See Defense Finances and Accounting Service Instruction 1341.
