Lifesong For Orphans Grant and Loan Application


Adoption is Lifesong For Orphan's ultimate goal in caring for orphan children as it enables them to become a part of God’s perfect plan…a family. While many Christian families have the desire and resources to care for a child, initial costs keep many from following God’s call to adopt.

Matching Grants

Lifesong offers matching grants (range from $1,000-$4,000), which encourage the adopting couple’s church family to financiallyand prayerfully support the adoption.

Dollar-for-dollar matching grants act as catalysts in raising funds. As donations come in for adoptive families, matching grant money becomes available.

Involving the local church creates a lifelong bond between the church family and the adopted child.

 Key Strategy – Catalytic tool that mobilizes & engages the Body of Christ, leveraging funds to help bridge the financial gap

Interest Free Loans–Lifesong Legacy Fund

The Lifesong Legacy Fund offers Interest Free Loans to help families overcome the high cost of adoption. For donors, the Legacy Fund is a gift that keeps on giving. As the loans are repaid, new family needs are met…creating a self-perpetuating fund.

  • Families enter into a covenant agreement to repay the loan through manageable monthly or annual payments.
  • Families may utilize the Federal Adoption Tax Credit (2012: $12,650, 2013: $12,970) to support their loan payments.

Key Strategy — Funds become ‘self-perpetuating’, where loan repayments each month are recirculated to help meet current needs of new adopting families.
