Children living in institutions across Eastern Europe. 4 out of 5 of them, equating to 1.2 million children, were placed there intentionally because they were born with Down Syndrome or another non-correctable medical diagnosis.
In Eastern Europe, less than 50% of the institutionalized children will live to see their 21st birthdays
Cost is the #1 prohibiting factor for American families when considering International adoption. Fees can range from $30,000 to well over $50,000 depending on the country.
Our mission is to empty Eastern European institutions one child at a time, by eliminating the financial barriers for American families pursing the International adoption of an institutionalized child with non-correctible medical needs.
For This Child Foundation for Adoption is a 501(c)(3) non-profit corporation that advocates for children living in Eastern European institutions while providing financial assistance in the form of adoption grants to families that have committed to the international adoption of a child with non– correctable special needs. We award multiple grants of up to $5,000 twice per year to qualified families without regard to race, income, religion, sexual orientation, gender, or marital status.
Why We’re Different
No Income Maximum
We realize that earned income is not the only factor when determining a family’s financial need for adoption grants. Our Board of Directors have immense experience in the world of international adoptions, special needs parenting and finance and are ready to hear your story!
Family First Approach
No Application Expiration
Once you have applied for an adoption grant through For This Child, your application will stay on file for consideration until you bring your child home. We only ask that you complete a recertification process every few months by responding to our email survey to ensure that you are still in process and grant funds are still needed.
