Chris and Holly Ruppe founded Metrolina Adoption Fund (MAF) out of both a heart and calling for assisting those children who do not yet have a forever family. Chris and his wife, Holly, have worked with children’s homes, supported adoption, and even adopted a child of their own.

One of the biggest hurdles to adoption is funding. It can be a very expensive process and for that reason many people are opting not to adopt who would otherwise be great options for children looking for a home.

Recently, the Ruppes partnered with Lifesong for Orphans to create the MAF, which provides financial aid and support to families looking to adopt. The MAF raises funds that are committed to assisting families in the greater Charlotte Metrolina area. Lifesong will provide the oversight, tools, and processes. MAF will assist at a local level to distribute funds and come along side families who are adopting.

Why Donate?
Adoption can be a very expensive process. There are many families that are able to give a child a forever home but may not have the financial ability to go through the process to make that happen. Your donation is a way for you to participate in helping every child have a forever family.
How To Donate?
There are two options for making a donation.
ONE TIME GIFT: You can follow the link below under "Where To Donate" and make a contribution. 100% of the money that goes into the fund will support a family's adoption process.
RECURRING GIFT:  If you would like to set up a recurring gift every month, there is a box you can check on the donation page. Simply click that box and the gift will be automatically applied each month. This is a way to give a little at a time but it adds up to be a substantial contribution.
