What is required to verify a family is adopting?

When you publish a Family Profile a member of the Our Beautiful Family team will contact you to verify the information is accurate.  This may include documentation or verification from your Adoption Agency that they will accept funds for your adoptions expenses.. If something comes up, we will let you know ASAP.

Do I have to wait for verification from Our Beautiful Family before I can start raising funds?

You do not! You can create your Family Profile and begin sharing your fundraiser with your community immediately. Donations to your Fundraiser can be disbursed for adoption related expenses once your adoption status is verified.

Where are the funds disbursed once my fundraiser is complete?

All funds raised can go directly to your adoption agency, or disbursed to you for qualified adoption related expenses. This helps maintain accountability in the process and ensures that donations given are eligible for a tax deduction.

If I do not reach the fundraising goal, can I still use funds raised for my adoption?


Yes! Funds raised can be used to pay for adoption related expenses.

What happens if we raise more funds than needed for our adoption?

If more funds are raised than are required to pay for adoption related expenses, those funds can be directed to your adoption agency, used for another families adoption related expenses, or to the Our Beautiful Family General Fund to be used to continue to support adoptive families.

Can I make a contribution to my own fundraiser?

Yes, however, contributions to your own adoption fundraiser will not appear on your year-end statement as a tax-deductible donation.

Are the donations made by my friends and family tax deductible?
