That’s right, we’ve been awarded a matching grant! We are so excited to have this help in our fundraising for our next adoption. The grant is through a non-profit foundation called Hand in Hand Christian Adoption, Inc. All funds received from our friends and family will be matched dollar for dollar up to our awarded grant amount ($6,000). That means if we raise $3,000 they will match it and give us another $3,000! This would be so helpful as we need to raise a total between $18,000-$25,000.

We would love your help! If you want to donate towards this matching grant you can make your check out to Hand in Hand Christian Adoption and mail it to the address below. For tax purposes please include our name on the outside of the envelope and do not put our name on the check itself.

Gifts must be postmarked by May 2 in order to be matched.

Here’s the address:

Hand in Hand Christian Adoption, Inc.
Jason & Kara Kelly
18318 Mimosa Court
Gardner, KS 66030

If we raise more than the matching amount they will still put all that money towards our adoption. If we are able to raise $8,000 through this grant we will have enough money to move to the next step of the process: applying to agencies and waiting to get matched! Then, once we are matched we will know what our total costs will be.

Thanks for helping us get a little bit further down the road!
