Your Adoption Finance Coach

Navigating the financial aspects of the  adoption process can be overwhelming and confusing. But there are many resources available to meet the financial challenges of  the adoption process and make informed decisions

NCFA has partnered with YAFC to provide members with the support they need to help put all of the financial pieces together for their adoption journey.

Meet the Coach

Kelly Ellison is an adoptive parent and development professional in the nonprofit sector for over 25 years.

She has a passion for helping adoptive families raise money for their adoptions.

From this passion she created the Adoption Finance Coaching system.

Families that use her system of Tools to Finance Your Adoption, Grant Writing, Special Events and more, typically raise between $5,000 and $15,000 for their adoptions.

Kelly, along with her team of adoption finance coaches, are here to help you create a comprehensive financial plan for your adoption.


"What Families are Saying"

"The Adoption Finance Coach was a huge support for us during our adoption.

Their expertise in planning and organizing events that support families in the adoption process is invaluable!

We were overwhelmed by the details, and intimidated to ask friends and family to financially assist us, but they showed us how to pull it all together and raise funds with grace. Doors opened to fund raising possibilities that we did not know existed."
