What is The Gift of Adoption’s Mission?
- Gift of Adoption Fund is a national 501(c)3 charitable organization that inspires adoption by providing grants to qualified parents – giving children who need families a permanent home and a chance to thrive.
When was the first grant awarded?
- Gift of Adoption awarded its first grant in 1997.
What is the history behind The Gift of Adoption Fund?
- Gift of Adoption was co-founded in 1996 by adoptive parents Gene and Lucy Wyka.
Realizing how grateful they were to be able to afford the time and cost involved in adopting and understanding the importance of giving their children a family, they began to wonder what they could do to help bring more children home to a loving family.
As a result, they began a foundation in 1996 with a single focus – to help others adopt. Due to the overwhelming demand for grants, Gene and Lucy converted their foundation from a private family foundation to a public charity in 2001.
