Time – Resources – Finances
Transfiguring Adoption greatly appreciates all the individuals like you and businesses like Jet's Pizza or Barnes & Noble that allow us to aid foster and adoptive families. No matter if a donation is $2.00 or $2,000 - every donation is able to get tips, tools and aid to parents that are having trouble helping the children in their care.
Businesses that would like a tax letter should note the request in the Notes section, after clicking on the Donate button below.
Advertising opportunities are available on our website and mobile app. For more information contact: [email protected]
What is a “Party with a Purpose?”A Party with a Purpose (PWP) is a gathering of friends, family, business associates or other acquaintances, hosted by friends of Transfiguring Adoption, to raise awareness of and funds for programs and services. PWPs are planned and hosted entirely by volunteers.
What is the party’s format?The format is chosen by the host(s) and can be as casual or as formal as he/she likes. Parties can range from backyard cookouts to catered wine tastings, and everything in between. The usual format is more of a cocktail party than a meal.
What can guests expect?Food, fellowship, and fun! Transfiguring Adoption staff provide information about our programs and services; the entire education segment usually takes no more than 10 or 15 minutes. Hosts or staff let guests know where any donations they choose to make may be placed.
IdeasLike any party, the format is limited only by your imagination. The following are just a few options that have proven successful for others: Hosting couple provides wine and other beverages; friends bring hors d’oeuvres and/or desserts to share. Offer something special, e.g. chocolate martinis, for $25 each as a revenue enhancement to the straight donations. Hosts provide all food, and each guest brings a bottle of wine - can be done as a wine tasting. Potluck party, with the host providing wine, beer, and burgers; guests asked to bring side dish to share. Other food ideas have included make-your-own pizza and a “wrap” party.
If you have more questions or would like to schedule a PWP, please contact Margie Fink [[email protected]; 618-867-2222].
Do you know someone that is a caseworker? Do you know a counselor or therapist that works with foster and adoptive children? Spread the word and tell them to look at our website. Caseworkers will be glad to know that we have media lists and reviews to help parents bond with the children in their care. Counselors are interested to learn about our tips and playful engagement activities.
Transfiguring Adoption is always on the look out for the next greatest book, movie or product that is going to help parents and assist foster/adoptive kiddos in their development. We work hard to review all media and products that we are sent.
