Grant Program

NZMG Foundation Education Program & Grant Program beneficiaries, Holly and Clark Bray, with their daughter, Avery.

The purpose of the Noah Z.M. Goetz Foundation Grant Program is to provide grants of $2,500 to North Carolinians who have been previously treated for infertility by a physician without success and are currently underway in, but have not completed, the domestic adoption process. The program offers two annual grant cycles (Spring and Fall) in which applications are reviewed and selected. Grant awards can only be used for services not yet received and are dispersed directly to the grantees’ domestic adoption service provider (adoption agency or attorney). Support is considered only for couples or individuals who are legal permanent U.S. residents and residing in the state of North Carolina. To be considered, all requested materials and a non-refundable application fee of $50.00 must be received by the postmark deadline for the grant cycle in which funding is being sought. Grant recipients are expected to participate in the Noah Z.M. Goetz Foundation Family Building Blocks Gala in November 2016.
