Our Heart

As adoptive families ourselves, we recognize the very real need for fundraising efforts in order to pay for adoptions. After researching and, in many cases, using the options available to hopeful and placed adoptive families, we noticed a trend: share our story, ask for help, and receive donations…but, at the same time, reveal many details about our future child’s and birth family’s story, face roadblocks when receiving our funds, and ultimately lose a percentage of our funds to the operating costs of the fundraising platform. We asked ourselves, “How do we better this process? How can we make fundraising safe for all involved?” We want our fundraising platform to honor Jesus, protect our children, and preserve their stories. We desire to make a challenging process easier for adoptive families by ensuring that they receive the full amount of money donated to them, and, as a 501(c)3, your family and friends can make tax-deductible donations while supporting your adoption journey. By ensuring a safer and easier fundraising platform, we hope to create space for adoptive families to grow and learn throughout their process, preparing to love and serve their future child and his or her birth family. In short, our goals are this: to refine the hearts of adoptive families, revise the fundraising narrative, and restore privacy to the process.

How to Use the Fundraising Platform

  • Determine how much you will need to fundraise with our platform. This can be an estimate if you are not yet chosen, have a child identified, or placed.
  • Create an account on the 17:20 Foundation website.
  • Build your profile and set your fundraising goal.
  • Share your fundraiser with everyone you know. Post on social media, add to your adoption blog, or create a QR code for fliers. Whether you ask for heart-felt donations, sell a product, or offer a service, ask your donors to contribute to your 17:20 fundraiser.
  • Watch your percentage of funds raised grow! Only by logging in to your 17:20 account will you see the exact dollar amount you’ve raised, but everyone who visits your 17:20 fundraiser will see how close you are to your goal.
  • When you’re ready to access your funds, gather the invoices and/or receipts for all current and past adoption expenses, and contact our fundraising coordinator at Your funds will be distributed appropriately based on the documentation you provide. For further clarification on what qualifies as an adoption expense, please review our FAQ page and the Terms and Conditions of the 17:20 Foundation fundraising platform.
