Thank you for your interest in the MCC Adoption Fund. 143 million. That’s the number of orphans in the world today. But it doesn’t take 143 million to make a tragedy. One child without a home is a tragedy. Every child longs for and deserves the love and security that comes from a safe home. At Muskogee Church of Christ, we believe that children belong in families, and we want to help make that happen. That is why the MCC Adoption Fund exists. We hope that with the help of our grants, Christian families can bring children into their homes through the wonderful gift of adoption.

How We Can Help
Adoption can cost between $10,000 and $45,000, and as a result many orphans are not adopted into families. Maybe you want to adopt, but you need some help getting over the financial barriers keeping your desires from becoming a reality. We understand, and we want to help. If your heart is saying “yes” to adoption, but your bank account is saying “no,” please don’t give up on the idea. Allow us the opportunity to join you in your journey. Grants are awarded in the amount of $1,500. Eligibility is pretty simple. Are you adopting? Are you a Christian? Do you have a completed home study? If you can answer “yes” to all of these questions, then please feel free to apply.

How You Can Help

Many families with room in their hearts and homes are unable to overcome the financial barriers. That’s where you come in. There is a critical need to connect generous givers with willing families, so that orphans can have a loving home. Would you consider donating to the MCC Adoption Fund? There is no gift too big or too small, and every penny will go towards helping children come home. Plain and simple, your generosity will change a child’s life.
