About The Hope Challenge

The William E. Simon Foundation awarded NCFA a $50,000 outright gift for the iChooseAdoption public awareness campaign, as well as a $50,000 challenge grant.  The grant funds will be used to support NCFA's 2012-2013 iChooseAdoption project, which aims to reach young women facing unintended pregnancy with the positive option of adoption.  We launched The Hope Challenge fundraising campaign in July with the goal of raising $50,000 by April 2013. We are pleased to report that we reached our $50,000 fundraising goal in November 2012, many months before our deadline. We couldn't have done it without the support of our faithful donors and generous supports. Thank you!

Can I still help raise funds for iChooseAdoption?

At NCFA, we're downright passionate about adoption. And we need your help to spread the word about adoption and our brand new iChooseAdoption campaign. Here's just a few ways you can help us:

  • TWEET using #chooseadoption
  • POST on Facebook
  • BLOG about why you chose adoption
  • SHARE your adoption story with us (we are looking for real adoption stories and videos from birthparents, adoptive parents, and adoptees)
  • FUNDRAISE for iChooseAdoption

What will the funds support?

All funds raised for iChooseAdoption will be used to reach young women facing unintended pregnancy with a positive message about adoption. We're reaching women using the brand new website (launching in January 2013), social media, YouTube videos, in-school posters about adoption, and traditional TV and radio PSAs.

Is my gift to NCFA/iChooseAdoption tax-deductible?

Yes. National Council For Adoption (NCFA) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, and all funds donated to NCFA are 100% tax-deductible.
