The number of orphaned children in our world is staggering (estimated 15 million) and yet for most, an adoptive family is a far away dream they will never realize. While the Bible calls all believers in James 1:27 to “care for orphans… in their distress”, not all families are called to adopt. Thank you for responding to God’s call and giving a financial gift to GGAM.
Through fundraising events, sponsored Athletes on the Athletes For Adoption Team, and gifts directed to families who have been awarded grants, the ministry of GGAM continues because of your generosity. We are committed to utilizing your financial gift to forever impact a child’s life. The leadership for GGAM is provided completely by volunteers and all operational expenses are funded by the board. This allows 100% of your gifts to be given to families answering the call to adopt.
Each family selected for a grant will be given the opportunity to raise funds from their community, which then GGAM will match dollar for dollar, doubling their funds and allowing their grant amount to total at least $2000. If the family raises more then the matching amount, the additional funds will be added to their grant account.
In 2016, GGAM celebrated giving 1 Million Dollars with a Family Carnival Party and GGAM had the privilege to give over $155,000 to families world wide. Dreams of a FAMILY are coming true for orphaned children around the world because of your generous giving. Thank you again from the leadership of God’s Grace Adoption Ministry!
