More about Griffin’s Gift: Griffin’s Gift is a recognized 501c3 charity that aims to alleviate this financial burden by granting non interest loans to a families chosen through an application process. As the loan is paid back, another family will be chosen to receive the life changing gift of adoption – a continuous cycle of blessings and joy. Adoption is an incredible journey that results in instant love. We believe any family who is committed to adopting a child should be able to make it a reality. We do not want finances to be the deciding factor for a family. Families are able to select the amount of money needed and the loan timeframe so that completing their family is financially attainable. To learn more about the charity, click here.
