Ways to Give

There are thousands of reasons to support the Dave Thomas Foundation for Adoption. In fact, there are more than 8,000 of them with names like Maci, Haylee, Latrell and Dalton. All of these children now have loving homes and permanent families thanks to the generosity of donors and the Foundation’s Wendy’s Wonderful Kids program.

But there is more work to be done to find forever families for the 123,000 children across the United States still waiting to be adopted from foster care.

As a donor, you can feel good knowing that your gift is helping to make significant progress possible. The Foundation earned a 4-star rating from Charity Navigator, recognizing our commitment to good governance, financial transparency and other best practices and is proud to be a GuideStar Platinum participant.

With your financial support, we can change lives and build stronger families and communities for generations to come.

We are humbled by the growing number of organizations and individuals who share Dave Thomas’ belief that,

“These children are not someone else’s responsibility. They are our responsibility.”

Thank you for sharing this great responsibility with us.
