The Lifepointe Adoption Fund is one of the ways that we can make a lasting impact in the life of an orphan. As families step into becoming a forever family for children in need, the financial piece can be a significant obstacle.
We are excited to help in this regard through partnering with Lifesong for Orphans to create the Lifepointe Adoption Fund. Lifesong for Orphans administers our fund at no charge to our congregation. To read more about our fund, click here.
Lifepointe’s Adoption Fund provides:
- matching grants
- interest-free loans
- fundraising support
- crowdfunding platform
- funds for pre- and post-adoption training
Active Lifepointe participants should complete a faith assessment with a location pastor and complete the attached application. The application should be mailed directly to Lifesong for Orphans. Lifesong for Orphans evaluates the application and makes a recommendation to Lifepointe Church regarding the type of funding and the amount of funding each family should be offered based upon the available funds and the amount of assistance needed by the family. Lifepointe Church reviews the recommendation, and once it confirms that you are an active participant in the church and makes a decision to approve or deny the recommendation, Lifesong for Orphans will contact the applying family with the final decision. Lifesong for Orphans handles all aspects of the application process, including evaluation and verification of all financial and other confidential information.
- Must be active Lifepointe participants
- Must have completed a faith assessment with a location pastor
- Must be a couple in the biblical sense of husband and wife

*Remember to specify that your gift is for Fund P568 Lifepointe Church, NC.
Your gift is tax-deductible. You can give to the fund generally, or you may specify that you wish for the gift to go toward a specific individual/family in Lifepointe Church who is adopting. No administrative costs will be deducted from your gift, so 100% of what you give will help member families with the cost of adopting, which may include application fees, paying hospital costs of a baby’s birth, travel costs to another country, home study costs, etc.
Donations of $250 or more will automatically receive a tax receipt. If your gift is smaller and you would like a receipt, please request one with your gift. To give for a specific family, that family must already have an approved application at Lifesong – so check with the family before sending in your gift. Because of IRS tax law, Lifesong cannot promise that your gift will go toward a specific adoption, but Lifesong understands your preference in giving and has a history of honoring donor requests. PayPal takes a 2-3% admin fee for online donations.
