The 35Kcampaign exists to help Christian families fund the adoption of children with special needs, sibling groups, and older children. Our mission is to help alleviate the stress of fundraising and provide ample support for these children to be placed in Christian homes where they are assured to hear the good news of the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
Children without parents are more likely to lack education, proper housing, and protection from exploitation. Adoption combats these issues by offering the support and security of a family. Every dollar donated to a family fund, or the Current Sponsored Family Fund, helps adopt a child, builds a family, and spreads the Gospel.
Our community of monthly donors fund matching grants for adopting families. However, instead of simply awarding a family with a matching grant, we go to work for families by personally helping them match the funds in their community. Our team works hand-in-hand to alleviate the burden and the anxiety of fundraising as we become an additional fundraising arm or our sponsored families.
We all do it! Our name is derived from the fact that $35,000 is the average cost of an adoption, foreign or domestic. That is a lot of money for a couple to raise by themselves, but it is not a lot of money for a community to raise. If you believe adoption changes the path and outcome of a child's life, then we invite you to join our community of monthly donors and be part of the campaign to fund adoptions.
The 35Kcampaign offers guidance to families journeying through the adoption process for the first time. Program recommendations, fundraising ideas, and grant options are available. Please fill out the contact form for more information.
If you know of a child needing a loving home, the 35Kcampaign often advocates for children on our website and social media platforms. Please provide us the information to any child needing a home via our contact form.
The Ryders lead the 35Kcampaign as an organic grassroots community of adoption supporters.
With a background in non-profits, social work, business, and technology the Ryders culminate their diverse skills to make a difference where it counts.
The Ryders have lived overseas and spent time serving in some of the children homes through which 35Kfamilies have later adopted their forever children.
The Ryders are truly blessed to support the 35Kcampaign and believe this community of donors is enriching the lives of children around the world as we help fund their adoptions into loving, God-centered, homes.
