What is Donnor Advised Funds?

1. Create an Account with a Financial Institution of Your Choice

Several financial institutions offer this option.  As a donor, you create an account with your preferred financial institution.  Then you put assets in that account.  These assets can be appreciated non-cash assets such as stocks, or other securities, and/or real estate.  You receive a same year tax deduction and could possibly eliminate taxes on non-cash assets.  (For more details please consult a specialist, or visit the sites below for NCF, Schwab, and/or Fidelity). 

2.  Growth

Once you’ve put your assets of your choice in your account, you can recommend your assets be invested for a possible tax free growth.  Depending on the services that the financial institution may offer, you can likely invest those or work with an advisor to determine best investment options for you, if any. 

3. Donate

When you decide the time is right, you can direct your financial institution to make a donation to any qualified 501c3 Non-Profit.  You can chose to make this donation from your account to Saint Mary’s.

Pay Our Internet Bill

Get practical!  Commit to helping us pay one bill that is the same every month, such as our monthly internet bill!  Every bill doesn’t seem like much, but they all add up at the end of the month.  Will you help us make it “one less bill”, as we fight every month to make it “one less orphan”? 

Pay one bill that we have that is re-occuring every month.



Office HOA Bill

Our office, as likely every office building, has an HOA that upkeeps the grounds and the parking lot.  Currently our monthly fees for this HOA grounds upkeep is around $247 per month.  Will you committ to taking this expense away monthly?  It will be a huge help!

Donate $247 monthly to help offset the agency's HOA expense.




Pay Our Office Rent

The most expensive monthly item.  Do you want to be our hero and committ to covering our monthy rent?  The agency can expenses here or there when necessary, but it cannot operate without an office.  Your contribution would literary be tied to helping the agency keep its (office) doors open!  

Make a monthly donation committing to covering our office rent of $1,199.




Pay an Application

The Catherine Grant

One of our sponsors, Catherine, has generously paid the application fee for a future adoptive parent.  This grant is only applicable thru an adoption with Saint Mary’s.  The application fee is worth $500.  If you like to apply for this grant, please email Nick for more info.  nick@saintmaryadoption.com

Pay For a Home Study

The home study is one of the most comprehensive documents that adoptive parents have to complete.  Once they have completed it, it opens the door for them to apply for grants so they can raise money for their adoption.  If you pay for this step on their behalf (a one time donation), you are literary opening more doors for them than you can imagine. 

Help a family with their adoption expense by making a donation towards their home study fee.




Pay Agency Fee

Cost is one of the biggest deterants for adoptive families to start. Combine this with other concerns, associated with not knowing the process and what it entails, and many people who have the heart to adopt never begin the process because the burden of concern and money combines to make the burden to heavy to carry at once time.  Be the hero who will take away the biggest barrier to the beginning of a process that promises to leave the child with one less orphan!

Help another orphan to get adopted by helping sponsor the fees for adoptive parents pursuing the process.




Dossier Fee

Turning in the adoption paperwork is a huge accomplishment.  It takes most adoptive parents aroun 6 months to put this together.  The sight of relief for parents when it is all finished is rewarding too see! Make the moment even sweeter by off-setting the cost associated with submitting the paperwork!

Foreign Fee – First Trip

If the adoptive parents are going on a trip, this means they have said “yes” to the referral of their child, and they are going to visit the child in the foreign country and bond with the child prior to finalizing the adoption.  The cost associated with this is the highest because of the foreign legal fees.  A contribution towards this expense is extra rewarding because now the family is coming togeether since the child has already been identified and the parents are in process of making everything official! Be the person to help them become official!
