Help Us Adopt is a national non-profit 501(c)(3) financial assistance grant program providing qualified couples and individuals – regardless of race, ethnicity, marital status, gender, religion, sexual orientation, or disability- with grants of up to $15,000 toward their domestic, international, foster, or special needs adoption expenses.

Help Us Adopt is on a mission to overcome the financial obstacles of adoption to build forever families. Help Us Adopt reduces the financial burden of adoption for families by awarding large, life-changing, problem-solving grants. Families must include a valid home study and a copy of their most recent tax return with their completed application and personal statement. If a grant is awarded, funds are released to adoption professionals (adoption lawyers and adoption agencies) when an invoice is due.
