In addition to our very successful “waiting child grant” program for international orphans, Reece’s Rainbow, as a 501c3 adoption grant and advocacy foundation, also provides an opportunity for committed families to continue their fundraising efforts through our Family Sponsorship Program (FSP).
Your fundraising success in our FSP program directly correlates to your own efforts! Rarely does full funding just “fall in your lap”. God expects you to do your part! Donations from friends, family, church, colleagues, etc are tax deductible and are made to your FSP fund on behalf of the child. Having funds already saved up is a great way to start. But yard sales, Pampered Chef parties, restaurant nights, church fundraisers, and social media campaigns are all great ways to encourage donations. Our Facebook Group is a great place to get other ideas as well. Once your home study is complete, you should be prepared to apply to multiple grant and loan foundations to meet your funding needs.
Please, PLEASE read through the information on this page carefully prior to submitting your application — lots of important details are listed here!
Funds from our grants are available to you after you have been invited to travel by the foreign officials, and are exclusively available for international adoptions. Qualified uses for these funds would be airfare, agency fees due at that time, in country expenses, and other related expenses. Funds are NOT available to help with upfront costs such as home study, USCIS, notary/apostille, mailing, translation, dossier submission, initial agency fees, etc.
With your submitted application and FSP donation of $25, we will set up your FSP profile. You will receive an email, when the FSP is published on the website; this is your cue that it is okay to announce your commitment to a particular child!
