We know the cost involved in doing an international adoption is a major part to the adoption process. New Hope is a nonprofit ministry. Fees going to New Hope are monitored by guidelines issued for nonprofit ministries.
New Hope has placed children with families with modest incomes as well as with families with high incomes.
Here are some suggestions that some of our families have found helpful:
Our government offers a tax credit for qualifying families. This credit is for each child adopted. Check with an accountant for exact details. Click here for more details.
Raising money through churches, family, friends and supporters of your mission has proven to be a success for some families. As a nonprofit organization donations can be given with tax benefit.
Some families have raised money with garage sale, fairs, carnivals, etc. This has worked well especially for bringing home children with medical issues.
Many families discover that by altering their expenses and by careful budgeting they can save more.
Many families use bank loans, refinancing plans, or savings.
Fees are altered for children considered difficult to place. This can be a correctable or non correctable medical issue and may sometimes need immediate attention. Some older children and some sibling groups may be considered hard to place.
Families considering an older child should check the Every Child Program. You can contact our office for more information.
