Giving Tuesday is a global generosity movement started about seven years ago. It is a movement where everyone can be involved. Giving is not just about making a donation. It is about making a difference. Whether you give your voice, goods, your time, or your money, being generous is a way to fight for the causes you care about and to help people in need.
We at AAI hope that you will become part of this movement!

Please Consider Making a Donation to AAI’s Expectant Mother Emergency Fund
This fund was developed to provide short-term and immediate financial aid to women who are in crisis pregnancies, particularly those without other support systems in place, yet who have chosen to carry the pregnancy to term. By utilizing this fund, we can help women starting from their first contact with us, and keep total costs for adoptive parents reasonable.
When you click on the green ‘Make a Donation’ button, please select ‘Expectant Mother Emergency Fund’ to contribute to the work of adoption.
HELP SUPPORT OUR EFFORTS
Domestic Outreach and Education
In our domestic program we are constantly looking for opportunities to provide accurate and useful information on the life-affirming option of adoption in and around our communities. It is our hope and prayer that anyone experiencing an unplanned pregnancy has ready access to accurate information about planning adoption. We reach out to schools, hospitals, community groups, churches, crisis pregnancy centers, clinics, and more, in our efforts to share information on adoption.
AAI Adoptive Family Grants
This was established to provide much-needed financial assistance for adoptive families working with AAI who are facing unique and unexpected financial challenges related to their adoption process and who demonstrate financial need. Financial challenges are often related to the adoption of an older child, a child with special needs, or a sibling group. Financial challenges may also arise due to unexpected additional legal costs or significant delays in the overall process. This fund helps to ensure that those most vulnerable children get adopted.
