ORGANIZATION: Gift of Adoption Fund


Board Member, GA Chapter

Company Description

Gift of Adoption is a national charity that provides grants of up to $15,000 to complete the adoptions of vulnerable children from the U.S. and around the world. Priority is placed on helping children for whom reunification is not possible and are facing what is possibly their last or only chance at adoption, including those at-risk of separation from siblings, entering foster care, aging-out of an orphanage, or with critical special needs. Gift of Adoption is the largest provider of adoption assistance grants on a nondiscriminatory basis (without regard to age, race, ethnicity, religion, sexual orientation, or marital status). Since inception in 1996, Gift of Adoption has awarded $14. million to give 4,467 children permanent families and the chance to thrive. Gift of Adoption is recognized by Charity Navigator and the Better Business Bureau's Wise Giving Alliance.

Our all-volunteer chapter boards engage leaders who believe that having a loving, permanent family is a necessity for all children, everywhere. Chapter board members are responsible for raising money and generating awareness. 100% of the funds raised by chapter board members goes directly toward awarding grants to unite children with their forever families in your chapter market.

We are actively seeking passionate, diverse, and experienced fundraisers to join our Georgia Chapter board. As of January 2022, Gift of Adoption Georgia has awarded $589,916 in adoption assistance grants across Georgia to complete the adoptions of 181 children.

We are looking for business and community leaders to grow our presence and our donor base. We aim to have everyone in Georgia know our name and pride ourselves on the fact that we are the largest national charity that offers adoption grants to qualified parents in a nondiscriminatory manner. Come join a team that is not only inclusive, but also making a measurable difference in the entire state. 100% of the money raised by the chapter is directed to uniting children with their forever families in the area.

We are looking for Board Members who:
- Are passionate about children, family, and who have a strong connection to adoption.

This is a non-compensatory, volunteer chapter board role. Our chapter board members are impactful and game changers. Please visit our website for more information.

About Gift of Adoption Fund


1200 Shermer Road, Suite 111, Northbrook, IL 60062, US

Mission Statement

Gift of Adoption is a national charitable organization that inspires adoption by providing grants to help fund adoptions-- giving children permanent, loving families and the chance to thrive.


We believe a child without a family is one of life's great tragedies because a child without a permanent home suffers. Orphanages and foster homes do not offer permanent solutions for the millions of children who need families. All children deserve the dignity and love that comes from being a part of a family. Gift of Adoption is committed to creating those families. Gift of Adoption is a national charitable organization that inspires adoption by providing grants to help fund adoptions-- giving children permanent, loving families and the chance to thrive.

Through Gift of Adoption, you can give time and donations to support adoption.

Even if you can't open your home, you can open your heart and transform the life of a child.
