Adoption Fundraising Ideas

Adoption groups and agencies have an important job to do and they often need fundraisers to do it. Fundraising can be difficult to say the least, especially when you are busy striving to facilitate the adoption process, encouraging women to choose adoption and to make the whole process as easy as possible for all concerned parties, the birthparents, grand-parents and the adopting families and of course, the children themselves.

One of the biggest decisions is often deciding what type of fundraiser to do. In Hueytown, Alabama, The Journey Home is a 5K run, a one-mile fun run and a craft market fundraiser which supports efforts by Hueytown residents to adopt orphans. In Broome County, New York Brooks BBQ set up shop across from the Binghamton University main entrance. The goal of the fundraising event was to raise money for the Wendy’s Walk for Kids, which includes the Dave Thomas Foundation for Adoption. Fundraisers by other adoption groups include children’s ID cards, imprinted teddy bears, garage sales, bottle campaigns, and other, non-BBQ type dinners.

Do-It-Yourself Adoption Fundraiser

You can also choose from a wide variety of adoption group DIY fundraising ideas to supplement your programs. How about a Honey-do, Chinese auction, text donations, Super Bowl sub sale, or thons of every type? Perhaps you can adapt one of these creative DIY fundraiser events to suit your needs:

Make Believe Tea Party – No finger sandwiches, crumpets or fine china necessary! All you need are tea bags, invitations, envelopes and stamps. Send a classy invitation for a “Make-Believe Tea Party” and an inexpensive tea bag to your friends, neighbors co-workers, etc. explaining that they are invited to a “make-believe tea party” on a certain day (Mother’s Day, for example)  read more…

Favorite Photos – Use photos of babies, dogs, etc. — anything that relates to your organization. Entrants submit a photo (specify maximum size accepted), and may also submit a 3×5 card with a few sentences as a description to create more interest.  read more…

Gift Wrapping – Get in touch with a store or mall in your area and ask about setting up a gift-wrapping fundraising booth for their customers for Valentine’s Day, Mother’s Day, Father’s Day and/or Christmas. Just like regular gift wrapping stations, you can charge different amounts for different levels of wrapping.  read more…
