Volunteer Opportunities

Gift of Adoption helped us bring home our little guy who would not have had a chance to thrive at his orphanage. They helped our daughter have a little brother to grow up with and they put a smile on the face of a little boy and a family who waited for each other for a very long time!

We need you. There are a variety of ways your talents, time and passion can make a direct and immediate impact in the lives of children in need of families. Whether leading a Giving Circle or joining a chapter event committee, your gift of time will make a difference.

Did you know?
Over 400 volunteers and 4 staff help make adoptions happen through Gift of Adoption.
  • GoAdoption Giving Circles

    When you lead a GoAdoption Giving Circle, you will be linked to a specific family and the child they yearn to welcome to their family. Your gift to this child and family is to raise the final funds they need to bring their child home.

    This is no small deed. Because of your Giving Circle the course of a child’s life will be changed for the better – forever – as they’re united with a loving family of their own.

    Though you may never meet this family or child in person, you will come to know them deeply in spirit. To be a part of such an incredible journey is a humbling experience.
