WACAP has touched the lives of over 10,000 orphaned or vulnerable children since 1976, bringing them into loving homes, but finding the children in need of families and finding the family that’s right for each one is not something we do alone. The support of our foundation and corporate funders is one of the reasons we can continue to reach hundreds more children each year with the joy and comfort of family.
We continue to be so thankful for the generosity of our funders this year and their commitment to building families:
IKEA Seattle, the RealNetworks Foundation, the TJX Foundation, the Tulalip Tribes Charitable Fund and the Union Pacific Foundation provided grants for WACAP’s US Kids Program, which finds adoptive families for children in state foster care in the United States.
The Northwest Children’s Fund and the Kawabe Memorial Fund awarded grants for WACAP’s A Family for Me program, our multimedia-based, collaborative initiative to find families for children who are waiting for adoption in Washington’s Puget Sound region.
The Employees Community Fund of Boeing Puget Sound provided a grant for accessibility and security upgrades to WACAP’s building and grounds.
Group Health sponsored WACAP’s Children’s Hope Auction, our biggest annual fundraiser.
Wizards of the Coast and Sun Travel USA provided sponsorships for WACAP’s Family Fun Day, our annual celebration for Seattle-area adoptive families.
