Please consider a donation to this important fund, which keeps Reece’s Rainbow operational.

Tick the box to “Make This Recurring” to make your gift a monthly gift.

Your gifts ARE a “voice of hope” for each of our waiting children!

Reece likes to help me make phone calls and send e-mails to potential donors, adoption agencies, and community organizations for help!

In the past nine years, the growth of Reece’s Rainbow has been explosive! In June 2006, we started with only 5 children in one country.  As of June, 2015:

  • 1300+ children with Down syndrome and other special needs are already home with their families!
  •  300+ additional children have committed families in various stages of the adoption process!
  • We have programs and waiting children worldwide.  Our most active programs right now are in Ukraine, China, and Bulgaria.
  • We have disbursed more than $10,000,000  in adoption grants to our adoptive families.

The Voice of Hope fund is what keeps us operational.

If we’re going to continue to be successful saving lives, Reece’s Rainbow has to be “out there,”  attending and sponsoring strategic events, print advertising, leveraging social media, building relationships, and seeking new donors to support our mission.  And behind the scenes, 7 days a week of administrative effort goes into managing/creating our website, defining our graphic/logo presence, handling donations, seeking and posting new waiting children, answering new family inquiries, serving those families through the adoption process, tracking and disbursing grant funds, taxes and accounting, charitable status, organizing Buddy Walks and preparing for and implementing our many fundraising efforts throughout the year.   Our Voice of Hope fund is where that money comes from.  Without this, we simply can not do what we do, and many lives will be lost as a result!

Reece’s Rainbow is totally non profit. We do SO much on comparatively SO little. Our operational costs remain below 10%, which is hard to do because we want to be able to do so much more for the children!   We cut out a lot of really great opportunities each year due to cost.   Reece’s Rainbow functions solely on private donations.   We’ve done everything possible to maximize each donation and give as much as possible to the waiting children and committed families.  At this time, we do not have any corporate or government funding, so we are completely dependent on your generous gifts to keep us going.

I thank you, our families thank you, and the children thank you!
