25th Anniversary Friend of the Chapter

To become part of the 25th Anniversary celebration, we invite you to join the:

FRIEND of the CHAPTER Program

Friends of the Chapter recognize that uniting vulnerable children with their permanent families is a constant and urgent need. Friends of the Chapter increase the capacity of a chapter to award the adoption assistance which brings more children home.  Friends commit to an annual gift of $1,000 or more for each of three years. Payments may be made monthly, quarterly, or annually at the preference of the Friend member.

Make your Friend of the GOA-Chapter pledge by clicking the “Become a Friend” button on this page, filling in your pledge and payment preference and selecting the Chapter you would like to Friend. You may also download a pledge form below.

Gift of Adoption provides quarterly communication to Friends on the impact of the gift along with recognition on our website, at events, and in the annual report.

Gift of Adoption provides adoption assistance grants to complete the adoption of vulnerable children – giving them permanent families and the chance to thrive.
