Adoption Fundraising Grants, Loans & Crowdfunding
While many Christian families have the desire to adopt and resources to care for a child, initial costs keep families from following God’s call to adoption. Lifesong for Orphans helps bridge the financial gap in adoption fundraising to help bring children home.
Please note — In order to comply with IRS guidelines and ECFA best practice, we must receive the completed application before the placement of a child in your home.
Adoption Matching Grants
Lifesong offers matching grants (range from $1,000-$4,000), which encourages the adopting couple’s church family to financially and prayerfully support the adoption.
Dollar-for dollar matching grants act as catalysts in raising funds. As donations come in for adoptive families, matching grant money becomes available.
Involving the local church creates a lifelong bond between the church family and the adopted child.
Key Strategy — a Catalytic tool that mobilizes & engages the Body of Christ, leveraging funds to help bridge the financial gap.
The Lifesong Legacy Fund offers Interest-Free Loans to help families overcome the high cost of adoption. For donors, the Legacy Fund is a gift that keeps on giving. As the loans are repaid, new family needs are met…creating a self-perpetuating fund.
- Families enter into a covenant agreement to repay the loan through manageable monthly or annual payments.
- Families may utilize the Federal Adoption Tax Credit (2015: $13,400, 2016: $13,460) to support their loan payments.
Key Strategy — Funds become ‘self-perpetuating’, where loan repayments each month are recirculated to help meet current needs of new adopting families.
