Anglican Adoption Fund

What is the Anglican Adoption Fund?

The Anglican Adoption Fund (AAF) is not new; in fact, it was created in 2015 and was known as the Anglican Chaplains Adoption Fund.  It was developed under and implemented by the Jurisdiction of the Armed Forces and Chaplaincy (ACNA), and the fund’s committee was made up of Anglican Chaplains who were adoptive parents themselves.

Since 2015, the fund has helped eight Anglican families involved in international, domestic, and foster care adoptions and granted over $15,000 in financial support.  In August 2021, however, the jurisdictional authority of the fund was passed to AFL, which complements our position as the go-to life-affirming ministry of the Anglican Communion.  Anglicans for Life created a fund review board in September 2021, which will review grant applications of potential adoptive families and send out funds accordingly.

Will, Anglican Chaplain

The Anglican Adoption Fund provided more to my family in the process than the monetary contribution. It was a visible sign that the entire church was with us and supporting us. My children were able to see, and recognize, that this adoption was not simply our individual effort, but that we were working alongside all of God's people to accomplish something that we could not do alone. It has given us confidence as we face the numerous hurdles in the process and reassurance that we are working in concert with God's plans for us, and for our adoptees.

Why Donate?

The goal of the fund is to assist Anglican families during the adoption process by reimbursing adoption expenses (such as home studies or placement fees). All donations are tax-deductible, and go towards the grants gifted to adopting couples. AFL aims to gift ten grants between $2,500 and $5,000 dollars in the fund’s inaugural year. Donating is a wonderful way take action For life.

Private Agency Fees

Working with a private agency to adopt a healthy newborn baby or to adopt from another country can cost $5,000 to $40,000.

Adoption costs can add up. Your generous donation will help offset these expenses.
