Donate to The Cradle

The Cradle is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization and licensed child welfare agency, providing adoption services, counseling and educational support. Since opening in 1923, The Cradle has facilitated over 16,000 domestic and international adoptions and has been at the forefront of open adoption, African American infant adoption and LGBTQ+ placements.

We advocate for ethical adoption and offer inclusive, compassionate support to birth parents, adopted persons, and adoptive parents. We are the only adoption agency in the country with an on-site nursery, a safe, neutral place for infants to stay while their parents take the time they need to decide if adoption will be the plan for this child.

Our critical services for all those touched by adoption are made possible through the generosity of our donors. Thank you for your charitable contribution to support our Cradle community.
