Dave Thomas Foundation
The Dave Thomas Foundation for Adoption provides grants to regional and national tax-exempt organizations and projects that promote the adoption of children from foster care. The Foundation is particularly interested in supporting organizations that operate under the premise that all children are adoptable, regardless of age, minority status, sibling group, or physical or emotional challenges. Grants made in 2005 included a grant to the National Indian Child Welfare Association to support programs for recruiting adoptive Native American families and a grant to the American Public Human Services Association for the development of a new interstate compact on the placement of children.
Grants are made on a quarterly basis, and proposals are accepted throughout the year. For more information about eligibility and the grant application process, go to www.davethomasfoundation.org
