Welcome to Gift of Adoption Nebraska & Iowa
About Gift of Adoption Nebraska and Iowa
As of December 31 2022, Gift of Adoption Nebraska and Iowa has awarded $421,300 in adoption assistance grants across Nebraska and Iowa to complete the adoptions of 134 children.
Each year, Gift of Adoption Nebraska & Iowa receives requests from approximately 21 qualified families – representing a funding need of $98,000. The goal of the Nebraska & Iowa 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 Nebraska and Iowa 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.
