Recognition for our Family of Donors

Thank you for believing and investing in the Dave Thomas Foundation for Adoption-Canada. Your gift each year* helps us to provide free educational resources, promote awareness, assist policymakers, educate employers and support adoption professionals and agencies throughout the United States and Canada to ensure that every child is adopted.

The 30,000 children waiting in foster care for loving, permanent families deserve our best efforts and we can’t thank you enough for the successes you have allowed us to achieve. In appreciation of your generosity, we welcome you into our Family of Donors and we recognize your distinct level of support.

Circle of Support

The Foundation is grateful for our donors who are so passionate about foster care adoption that they contribute on a regular basis. In recognition of such dedication, our Circle of Support recognizes all donors who contribute more than once a year, including monthly gifts. These consistent contributions mean that the work of our adoption recruiters continues, and more waiting children will be adopted from foster care.

*Dave Thomas Foundation for Adoption-Canada financial year is January 1 – December 30.

Thank you, for supporting our belief that foster care adoption is worth it.

Your support of the Foundation can change everything for a child waiting to be adopted. A supportive family means opportunities like graduating from high school and attending college. For the Marris children, it also meant having grandparents for their children and a line of support to carry them into adulthood.
