OR / Columbia River Chapter

About Us

Welcome to the Home Page of the Gift of Adoption OR / Columbia River Chapter.

GOA-OR-ColumbiaRiver

As of June, 2018, Gift of Adoption OR/Columbia River has awarded $426,500 in adoption assistance grants across the Pacific Northwest to complete the adoptions of 141 children.

Chapter Goal

Each year, Gift of Adoption OR/Columbia River receives requests from approximately six qualified families – representing a funding need of $18,500. The goal of the OR/Columbia River 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 the OR/Columbia River region 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.
