Financial Assistance from Forever Family Ministries

How are the amounts of adoption grants determined?

The size of the grant is determined predominately by the applicants’ needs and by the funds available.  The applications are received and processed by our Selection Committee.

Are funds paid directly to the family or directly to the adoption agency?

For payments owed to the agency, FFM will make payments directly to the agency whenever possible. We can reimburse families upon receipt of documentation of the amounts needed.

Adoption Grant Application/Approval Process

The couple sends their application to FFM along with a copy of their home-study report and the other information requested on the application. We try to review each application within 6-8 weeks after we receive it and send a letter to inform the couple of our determination.

Donor Questions

May I designate my contribution for the benefit of a specific family?

According to the IRS guidelines, a donor may not retain control over how a nonprofit organization ultimately uses the donated funds, but the donor may make a request that his or her funds be used in a particular manner. The organization is permitted to consider the request, while the ultimate authority regarding the disposition of the funds is in the discretion of the organization. FFM is grateful for each donation, as each gift enlarges the amount of money available to us, thus making it more likely that each approved family will receive the funds they need.
