About

With your help, Gift of Adoption is ready to grow its energetic Washington State Chapter Board to increase its impact this year!

Gift of Adoption is a national nonprofit that helps vulnerable children by providing funding to complete their adoptions by highly qualified families. Wherever possible, Gift of Adoption supports adoptions of the most at-risk children, including those with special needs, siblings who might otherwise be separated, kids who would age out of the system, and those at risk of entering foster care.

To fundraise, we organize fun social events, online campaigns and more. The board currently consists of professionals who volunteer their time and connections to further the cause. You can live anywhere in WA by participating in monthly calls and quarterly in-person meetings in Seattle. 100% of the money we raise goes directly to completing WA families' adoptions.


We are seeking new Board members who:
- Are passionate about volunteering to help children

- Have creative fundraising ideas and the motivation to make them happen!

- Are connected to and/or interested in outreach to the local business community

- Enjoy connecting people and finding partnership opportunities

- Are comfortable reaching out to their network of family and friends about a good cause

- Have strong communication skills

- Want a volunteer opportunity that makes a permanent difference

Expectations:

- Help plan and attend fundraising events

- Make small personal gift [per national Board guidelines]

- Work with the board to collectively raise at least 10k annually to fund WA adoption grants

- Participate in one board call a month

- Attend a quarterly in-person meeting

We are a team of smart, dedicated (and, we like to think, fun!) people who believe that a loving family is a basic human right. If this sounds like you, we’d love to talk! www.giftofadoption.org
