Illinois Chapter

About Us

Welcome to the Home Page of the Gift of Adoption Illinois Chapter.


Since its inception in 2003, The Illinois Chapter of Gift of Adoption has awarded more than $955,000 to complete adoptions for more than 285 children. These grants have given parentless children from around the world and the United States permanent homes and the chance to thrive.

Please get involved and help the Illinois chapter continue to grow and reach more families in throughout its service area. Discover our volunteer opportunities.

Board members are responsible for building awareness and raising funds for this rapidly growing, energetic, national, nonprofit dedicated to putting adoption in reach for the millions of children world-wide without a family.  Gift of Adoption inspires adoption by providing grants to qualified parents – giving children without families permanent homes and the chance to thrive.

Board members can be located anywhere in the state, but must be willing to participate in monthly calls and quarterly in-person meetings to support the development of a strong state presence – as we create awareness of this new philanthropic category and resource our vision.

If you would like to work with smart, dedicated people who believe that a loving family is a basic right for children everywhere, contact Pam Devereux, CEO.
