Ags for Orphans

As students and family of Texas A&M University, we’re taught a few things. First, that life isn’t just about us. OUR goals, OUR dreams and OUR well-being are all great, and even encouraged; but there has to be more. Selfless service, one of our core values, is the essence of living lives of sacrifice; being willing (and even dedicated) to give our time, talents and resources for the betterment of others. Leadership, another core value of the Aggie Family, is the brave step to begin changing the world for good, and the driver for our efforts to defend the orphan. We believe children were meant to have families and that their lives were designed to be provided for and protected. That’s why we, the Aggies of Texas A&M University, are committed to leading our peers, friends and family in caring for the orphan.

Through strategic partnerships, Ags for Orphans helps to provide for 60 orphaned children in Haiti; with that number jumping to over 200 once our Myan Orphanage Project is complete (Phase 1 to be completed late 2013). Provision for these children is done through 6 basic needs that we, and our partner organizations, have defined as critical: clean water, food, basic healthcare, education, job skills and a loving home. Funds raised through the Chosen Marathon/Half Marathon will be used to meet the needs of the children we’ve committed to care for.

Using the online form on this page automatically submits a request to preference your gift to the family profiled on this page as part of ABBA Fund’s Christian Family Adoption Grant Fund. ABBA Fund administers this fund and maintains full control and administration of all donated funds. We also strive to honor our donor’s preference requests in accordance with IRS and Evangelical Council for Financial Accountability (ECFA) guidelines.

As required by IRS regulations, any tax-deductible donation is made to the charitable organization (ABBA Fund) and not the individual (family) — otherwise it is a non-deductible gift and should be given directly to the family.

Every gift into the Christian Family Adoption Grant Fund is helping reduce the financial burden of adoption for families that have qualified for support from ABBA Fund — including the family listed above in their online Family Adoption Fund profile.

The IRS allows donors to state a preference of how their contribution is used and request that the gift support a particular family — and it allows the charitable organization (ABBA Fund) to fully consider that request as long as the donor understands and acknowledges for charitably given tax-deductible gifts that the ultimate authority regarding the disposition of your gift is at the discretion of the charitable organization. By using this online form, or other method described above, you are acknowledging an understanding of those IRS guidelines.

ABBA Fund is grateful for each donation given to the Christian Family Adoption Grant Fund, and broad participation in the fund helps ensure that ABBA Fund is able to assist each approved family with the grant and loan funds preferenced to reduce the financial burden of their adoption.

ABBA Fund, a 501(c)(3) ministry, has provided more than $5.4 million in grants and interest-free loans to help 972 orphans become sons and daughters in loving, nurturing homes through assistance to 827 Christian families since 2004 (as of fall 2014) — with more adoptions being assisted every month.
