Amanda DeBow is an adoptee who had the “priceless” opportunity to travel to her birth country because of a Gift of Identity Fund grant. Now, she has put out a video message asking you to help raise funds so that more adoptees can have the same opportunity she had. A true pay-it-forward spirit.
In 2012, we established the Gift of Identity Fund so that all international adoptees could have the financial support to explore their origins. We are only organization of our kind, and in just three years, we have been able to provide travel grants to 10 adoptees who have traveled to six different countries. Thanks to the generosity of recent donors, we have been able to award four additional grants. But the need for more travel grants is growing.
A new grant cycle is opening in January, and more adoptees will have the opportunity to apply. Your donations will ensure that we can fund even more birth country travel for adoptees looking to build connections with their beginnings. Help us meet our fundraising goal and GIVE THE GIFT OF IDENTITY today!
