Make a Donation

Every dollar that comes into the Dave Thomas Foundation for Adoption makes a lifetime of impact for children waiting in foster care. Every year, nearly 20,000 youth age out of foster care in the United States without a forever family.

Your donation to the Foundation will help sustain our work to raise awareness about the urgent need for foster care adoption, advocate for adoption benefits in the workplace and support the expansion of our Wendy’s Wonderful Kids program.

Donate to make a lifetime of impact today.
