How it Works
With your approved application, we set up a fund in your loved one’s name, your family name or another name you choose. You and others can then make tax-deductible contributions into this fund. This can be a one-time gift or you can continue to make periodic contributions to your Legacy Child Fund with the ability for friends and family give as well.
You send us 1-3 photographs and a brief biography or story that you would like us to use to create your page on our website, and add a donation form where friends and families can also contribute to your fund if you choose – and where you can refer adoptive families you know who are seeking assistance to be able to apply.
You share with us some general characteristics of the type of adoption you would like to support, and we will match an adoptive family/families approved through our process to your fund. You can either review and chose the families you support, or we can select families for you based on your guidelines and let you know when you fund is being used. Either way, we will share information with you about the adoption you’re assisting and share photos as we get them from the family. You can also refer adoptive families you know to ABBA Fund and ask that we evaluate their application to be considered for support from your Legacy Child Fund.
As the initial family repays their loan and your fund is replenished, we then go through the process again to match with another family so your fund keeps on giving.
ABBA Fund does not charge any fees to set up or administer Legacy Child Funds, instead we ask that you prayerfully consider at least an annual charitable contribution to ABBA Fund’s overall operations.
