Who is the Dave Thomas Foundation? Why did we choose this charity?
The Dave Thomas Foundation for Adoption-Canada is a non-profit public charity dedicated exclusively to finding permanent homes for the more than 30,000 children waiting to be adopted from Canada’s foster care system. The Dave Thomas Foundation provides grants to public and private adoption agencies. These agencies hire adoption professionals who are extremely effective at finding homes for kids in foster care.
The Foundation also works closely with child welfare advocates and policymakers, provides free resources for adoptive families, and raises awareness about the critical need for foster care adoption.
Look around you, you probably can’t tell who came from a foster home or an orphanage. In fact, 1700 children in Canada alone are adopted each year and this number can and should be improved…with your help. Several staffers and members of this convention are adopted or have adopted family members. This brings The Dave Thomas Foundation even closer to our hearts.
