Foster Care Adoption Programs Supported, Dave Thomas Foundation for Adoption

Foster Care Adoption Programs Supported, Dave Thomas Foundation for Adoption – The mission of the Dave Thomas Foundation for Adoption is to dramatically increase the number of adoptions of children waiting in the U.S. foster care system. The Foundation offers the following two grant programs for organizations in the United States: General Adoption Grants support new ideas and proven programs that focus on foster care adoption in the United States. Funded programs must have national impact or include a plan for national replication. Wendy’s Wonderful Kids Grants help public and private adoption agencies hire adoption professionals to implement proactive, child-focused recruitment programs targeted on moving America’s longest-waiting children from foster care into adoptive families. Requests for both programs may be submitted throughout the year. Visit the Foundation’s website to learn more about each grant program. (Posted: June 10, 2014)
