The Whole Story Campaign

To create justice in adoption, we need to understand it more fully.

That’s why we’re making space for the whole story. Watch this video to learn more.

Individuals and Society

We look at both lived experience and the bigger picture: history, the adoption system, and social forces like racism and poverty.

Helping and Harming

We explore how adoption can both support people and diminish people, depending on how we choose to understand and practice it.

Let’s raise $20,000.

If we raise $10,000 from you, our Supporters, we will receive and additional
$10,000 from a generous donor.

Here’s how it works.

1. You make a donation by 12/31/17

Choose an amount that feels personally meaningful to you. It might be $5 or $5,000. Every dollar counts.

2. On 1/1/18, we look at total donations (including yours!)

This is the big moment. If individual donations add up to $10,000, we receive another $10,000.

3. Put the money to use.

Find brilliant collaborators. Grow our network of supporters. Create more groundbreaking work. Repeat.
