Ways to Support Our Programs

Thanks to donors like you, HFS is proud to provide many services free of charge to our clients.

Birth Mother Support

At HFS, we have a birth parent fund that helps support our birth mothers financially while they are pregnant and recovering postpartum. This fund pays for very specific, pregnancy related support (such as food, rent, utilities, clothing, medical costs and travel to appointments, social worker time with birth parents, and legal fees related to court termination of parental rights).

All of our adoptive parents pay into the fund, but donations support the fund to keep costs down for our families.

Outreach and Education Support

Young women in an unplanned pregnancy, potential adoptive and foster parents, and medical professionals are often unaware of the resources and support services available to them and their clients. HFS’ Outreach and Education team connects with the community and builds relationships by sharing an informed, clear, meaningful message about the option of adoption and our lifelong services. Your donation helps provide our community with this important information.

Christmas and Birthday Presents for our Foster Youth

All children love the wonder and excitement of Christmas. Help provide a special gift under the tree to one or several of our foster youth. With your donation, our staff and volunteers, will select a personal gift for our children in care. Click here for the HFS Amazon Wishlist for toys and essentials

Legacy Gifts

What could be more joyful than leaving a legacy that perpetuates your values? Consider a legacy gift to HFS Adoption & Foster Care when you are evaluating your personal, family and financial needs as well as your long term charitable giving. Bequests, Beneficiary Designations, Life Insurance, Securities. Gifts both large and small are important. Take the time to consider your options carefully and plan your gift in consultation with family, lawyer or financial advisor. What legacy would you like to leave the world? Please contact us for more information.

Tribute Gifts

Tribute gifts are a meaningful way to honor a friend, colleague or loved one, while helping to continue the HFS mission. CELEBRATE a birthday or anniversary. HONOR a family members accomplishment! REMEMBER a loved one by making a donation in their memory. When you make a tribute gift, a personalized card will be sent to the person you wish to honor. In a memorial gift, the card is sent to the family of the individual being honored. This notification includes your name as the donor but does not include the amount of the gift. To make a Tribute Gift, please contact us.

Stock Gifts

Donating stock instead of cash can be a smart way to express your generosity. You can donate long-term appreciated stock you’ve held for more than a year. Not only does your charity get to benefit from a valuable item, but you also get to claim the fair market value as an itemized deduction and avoid paying the capital-gains tax that would result if you sold it and donated the cash. A simple, yet effective strategy.

To make a gift of stock, please contact your Financial Advisor and provide the following information for the receiving brokerage firm:

Ken Robbins 301 North Lake Avenue, Suite 1150 Pasadena, CA 91101-4115 Phone: 213.327.1059 Email:

DTC Clearing Number: 0725 FBO Holy Family Services Adoption & Foster Care Account number: 205D8542
