Established in 1996 with a one-time grant, DAI depends on new and renewable sources of funding. Your financial support — in any amount — helps improve adoption for everyone: birth parents, adoptive parents, children, adopted adults and adoption professionals.


We sincerely appreciate your generosity. Your gift will make a difference in the lives of everyone touched by adoption.

For more information, or to discuss major gifts, designating your gift for a specific initiative, or gifts of securities, please email April Dinwoodie, Chief Executive, or call her at (212) 925-4089.

DAI is a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt organization incorporated in New York. Your gift is fully tax deductible to the extent allowed by law. To make your gift go even farther, please check with your employer to see if they match employee charitable gifts; simply send us the matching gift form available from your Human Resources Department and we will do the rest.

Tell your family and friends that you support the Donaldson Adoption Institute by posting a message on Facebook or Twitter.
