Frequently Asked Questions

How will my gift help children, birth parents, and adoptive families?

Your gift will ensure more children will be adopted out of foster care, women facing an unintended pregnancy will continue to receive comprehensive information on the positive option of adoption, and intercountry will remain a viable, ethical alternative for building families.

I’m having trouble deciding between giving to a specific NCFA program or general operating support. Which is better?

If you’re unsure of how to designate your gift, consider selecting “Where my gift is needed most,” and we will apply your gift to the program with the greatest need at the time you make your donation. We will promptly inform you on how your gift made a difference.

How will I know my gift is being used to help children?

Responsible stewardship of your gift is our promise to you. We abide by strict accounting guidelines and conduct a yearly audit to protect NCFA and our donors from fraudulent accounting practices. We pledge to use the vital resources entrusted to us in an ethical and transparent manner.

Is it possible to give a gift to NCFA in honor or memory of a friend or loved one?

Yes. We receive many gifts in honor of loved ones, adopted persons, friends, or individuals who have made contributions to the adoption field. Giving a gift to NCFA in honor of a friend or loved one is a special way to show someone how much you care and appreciate their work on behalf of children and families. Simply complete the online giving form and make note of the person’s name and mailing address so that we can send them a special note about your gift in their name.

If I make an online gift, will the transaction be secure?

Absolutely. We use a secure credit card processing system called Stripe, maintain an updated security certificate on our website, and never share personal or identifying information with anyone - ever.

Is my gift to NCFA tax-deductible?

Yes. National Council For Adoption (NCFA) is a tax-exempt organization under section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code. Your charitable contribution to NCFA is 100% tax-deductible.
