Concluding Our Mission

 

“Holding my son Noah for the first time was a healing experience. It eased the pain and heartache so that I could feel sheer joy and love. I want others who have battled infertility to have that opportunity.”
Parul Goetz, Co-Founder
Noah Z.M. Goetz Foundation

Dear Friends,

First and foremost, thank you for your generous support of Noah Z.M. Goetz Foundation! We are so incredibly grateful for having you in this community! Indeed, since the foundation’s inception in 2011: 32 children have been adopted; 29 families have been built or expanded through domestic adoption; 127 families have been educated about domestic adoption as a potential path to parenthood; and, $18,500 in grants have been made to support 16 families during their domestic adoption process.

When we established the foundation, we never dreamed that this would be the impact which would be made and are humbled by what this community has achieved over the last eight years! And now as we look at what has been accomplished, we are mindful that our own family has evolved and our lives are taking a new direction. We always knew that there would come a time when the mission would conclude and as we recognize this change, we know that this is the right time to do so.

This being said, Noah Z.M. Goetz Foundation will formally close by the end of 2018. Our final grants have been awarded and the process of closure initiated. To help fill the gap left behind, we have identified and vetted a resource that we feel will help provide the same quality of service: Creating a Family: The National Infertility & Adoption Education Nonprofit. We are extremely impressed with their breath and depth of knowledge, and all of their on-line resources are available on-demand and free of charge. We feel that they will be a great starting point for those who have an interest in pursuing domestic adoption.

As we conclude the mission, your support is what ultimately made the foundation successful and we cannot thank you enough for being the cornerstone upon which our impact was made!

Again, thank you for your support and generosity over the years!

Sincerely yours,

Nathaniel & Parul Goetz
