Donate To Heritage Camps for Adoptive Families

Heritage Camps for Adoptive Families, a 501c3 nonprofit, is a critical source of support for adoptive families. While many adoptive families seek out professional support from therapists specializing in attachment or identity, HCAF provides comprehensive support by building community, fostering cultural connections, and providing expert guidance for the entire family.

Donate to Heritage Camps for Adoptive Families with a one-time donation or a recurring monthly donation, and know that you’re providing adoptive families with the tools and connections they need to thrive.

Our camp fees are considerably lower than many other adoption camps. We believe it’s important to be inclusive, and want to ensure that camp is affordable for the majority of families. We provide scholarships for camp fees and accommodation for those who qualify for financial support.

We rely on the generous support of camp families, community members, and local and national businesses. We must raise $250,000 annually in addition to income from camp fees.

An endowment will ensure that HCAF will continue to serve adoptive families with improved sustainability. Email Marissa.Tafura@HeritageCamps.org for more information.
