The purpose of the Adoption Fund is to assist members of Good News Presbyterian Church in adopting children currently in foster care or orphanages. Grants will be generously dispersed, as funds permit and needs require, up to the cost of the adoption, less the amount of the income tax credits that adoptive parents will receive. Grant applicants will be interviewed by the deacons in order to assess and understand the member’s financial need. The deacons will then provide a grant recommendation to the session. Donors to the Adoption Fund receive a tax-deductible charitable gift contribution receipt.
