Why Partner with Gift of Adoption?
A partnership with Gift of Adoption can engage your employees and blend your company’s goals with the mission of Gift of Adoption—to unite vulnerable children with permanent families. 81 million Americans have considered adoption, creating a large and untapped audience to engage with the joint goals of increasing product sales and bringing children home. Uniquely, 100% of your contribution can be directed to adoption assistance grants, creating true value to share with your stakeholders.
Create a Fund
Engage employees through direct impact in areas where they live and work. Creating a fund focused on your company’s mission or geographical footprint helps local families who can then share their stories within your organization.

Adoptive families are a large, and largely untapped audience for a marketing campaign. Companies have a unique opportunity to be a leader in promoting and supporting adoption assistance as a philanthropic priority. Funds raised will unite children with the hardworking families Gift of Adoption grants support, including small business owners, nurses, teachers, military, and so many others representing the backbone of the U.S. economy. November is National Adoption Month, providing a focused time period to celebrate and support this wonderful way to create a family.

How to become a cause marketing partner
Creative promotions get consumers excited to purchase products that give back and help to create and enhance brand loyalty. Every $4,000 raised unites a child with his or her permanent family in the U.S. with 0% going to overhead expenses.
Consider a marketing initiative which includes:
- A percent of a product’s sales or the opportunity to “round up”.
- Creating a specific product to support Gift of Adoption.
Color Street Nails offered a product in June 2020 to support adoption and foster care related nonprofits which sold out in just 3 days.
- Adding Gift of Adoption to a choice of charities to support through your website.
Gift of Adoption shares the stories of the children brought home through funding from the cause marketing initiative and promotes the partnership and its impact on our website and social media.
Gift of Adoption has 24 volunteer-led chapters around the country which hold events to raise funds and create awareness of adoption assistance as a philanthropic priority for all those who care about children.

When organizations donate goods or services, those donations are considered gifts-in-kind. Gift of Adoption has a unique and critical need for in-kind donations of travel-related services, but donations of other products will also contribute to our program’s success.
Travel expenses can be 10 to 30% of the final costs an adopting family must cover. Families adopting domestically often travel across the country to be by their baby’s side during an extended stay in a hospital. Internationally, some countries require multiple trips and long stays in the country before an adoption can be completed.
- Donating empty hotel rooms for an adoptive family’s stay.
- Providing a free airplane seat for the return trip of a newly adopted child from overseas.
- Providing coupons for a free meal at a restaurant chain so adopting families can stay nourished while traveling to meet their child.
- Providing gift cards for gas to fuel the car for the trip.
Other In-Kind gifts
- Auction items for local events.
- Welcome home packages or gift cards for the 500 plus newly adopted children Gift of Adoption helps each year.
