Chapter Goal 

Each year, Gift of Adoption Arizona receives requests from approximately nine qualified families – representing a funding need of $36,000. The goal of the Arizona Chapter’s all-volunteer board is to raise enough funds to help complete each of these adoptions. 100% of the money raised by the chapter is directed to uniting children with forever families in the area.

The chapter is currently seeking leaders throughout Arizona to get involved as chapter leaders and help the chapter grow and reach more families.

The Arizona Chapter became the 20th Gift of Adoption Chapter in June 2017. The chapter is currently seeking leaders throughout Arizona to get involved as chapter leaders and help the chapter grow and reach more families.

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.

Gift of Adoption Fund - Arizona Chapter

Jordan and John adopted their daughter, Dawson, in July of 2018 thanks in part to a grant from Gift of Adoption -- Arizona Chapter.

"Dawson was definitely the missing piece our family needed. Everyone is absolutely in love with her -- my grandparents, who live out of state, are moving back because they can't stand to be away from her! We just all feel so blessed and still can't believe she's really ours. We're absolutely in love. From the bottom of my heart, I want to say thank you."

Gift of Adoption responds to COVID-19:

"Gift of Adoption continues to award grants to nearly 33 families each month. It has always been our practice (and it is especially critical now) to work closely with our grant recipients, alongside adoption agency/attorney partners, to ensure that, despite travel plan changes, delays, or unexpected costs their adoptions move forward and their waiting children come home for good."…
