Your support of our Annual Fund campaign can help create a lifetime of love and support
for families and children.
We’ve heard that life is a collection of moments. For the thousands of waiting children, today is all they have. Their tomorrow is defined only by the question “Do I matter?” You have the power to help redefine these moments. Partner with us today by making a donation to provide Lifetimes of Love and Support for families and children!
Please know, that we couldn't do it without you!
What is the Annual Fund?
The Annual Fund is an ongoing effort managed by The Barker Adoption Foundation's Development Team and realized through the dedication of legions of volunteers and donors.
Close to 35% of Barker's annual budget is raised through donations by generous individuals like you. Your gift to our Annual Fund provides urgent, unrestricted funds to support all of the agency's operations. This means Barker can support women facing an unintended pregnancy, create families through adoption, and support the adoption community through post-adoption services. Gifts from generous people like you are imperative to the families and children that need our services.
How Can I Support the Annual Fund?
Give a One-Time Gift or Become a Monthly Donor
Gifts from generous people like you make up a third of our annual budget and are imperative to the families and children that need our services. Consider making a gift of any amount online or mailing a check to our Barker Office: 7979 Old Georgetown Rd, First Floor, Bethesda, MD 20814.
Give the Gift of Time- Become a Barker Champion Volunteer
Every day, volunteers help us find permanent, loving families for children by donating their time and talents – while simultaneously building new skills. Service or academic credits may be available for middle-school and high-school students.
There are various opportunities to support the Annual Fund. We need volunteers for several roles. You can choose to volunteer from your home or our Bethesda office, whichever days and times work with your busy schedule. Even a few hours will help.
