Endowed institutions that usually award project or study grants on a wide variety of social problems. Unfortunately, very few foundations have been formed to study or relate to the subject of adoption, and when adoption is addressed, SPECIAL NEEDS ADOPTIONS are almost invariably the only subject covered. This is very unfortunate because many social problems are related to and could be ameloriated by adoption, for example, teenage pregnancy, welfare dependency and infertility.

Some foundations are actually adoption agencies that prefer to use the word "foundation" in the name of their agency.
