If you have any questions about the application process, or are having trouble applying, please contact us at the e-mail address below:
1.) Free Consultation with an adoption funding specialist.
If approved, you will have a phone consultation with an adoption funding specialist who will assess your needs. Based on this conversation, the adoption funding specialist will create a personalized adoption funding plan for you. This will include setting up a crowdfunding page for your family (See #2), and recommending grants and fundraisers that will benefit your family. When available, matching grants will also be awarded.
2.) We offer every family their own custom peer to peer fundraiser.
This multi-tiered approach, not only allows supporters to donate to your adoption, but also allows them to create their own fundraising page for your adoption and spread the campaign to their social network.
By tapping into these secondary communities, your family can increase awareness of your story, recruit new donors, and raise more money for your adoption!
On your peer to peer fundraising page you can share your adoption story, a family photo, your fundraising goals and more.
(Please note that the platform that we use charges a 5% credit card processing fee per donation. However, donors are given the option to cover the transaction fees associated with their donation. Given the option, the majority of donors choose to cover the cost associated with these fees.)
3.) We will spread the word about your adoption through social media.
Connected Hearts Ministry will share your adoption story on our social media platforms and make the ask for you. All you need to do is share the postings with your social network and watch as the funds come in.
4.) We offer Matching GrantS to encourage donations to your account
Matching grants are a great way to encourage people to donate towards your adoption. Connected Hearts will match any donation dollar-for-dollar up to the specified grant amount. We offer matching grants that range from $250 to $1,000.
Matching grants are limited and not always available.
