Tax Deductible Donations Directly to Our Agency

It's that time of year again, and a few of you have asked, so I thought I'd do a post about tax deductible donations towards our adoption.  Even though we are on 'hold status' with our Agency, tax deductible donations can still be sent directly to our agency or to us to forward to our Agency. {make sure the checks are made payable to Christian World Foundation or CWF}  Any money received in excess of our Agency fees (which are already paid) will be held in escrow until we are ready to travel.  Once we get our 1st travel date, they will send us the check for the donations received so that we can use it towards our travel expenses or towards our current adoption loan.  

You can make tax deductible donations directly to our Agency in three ways:

1. On Line donation
  • Go to website;
  • Click on the “Donate Now to CWA” link; Provide requested information;
  • In the “Optional” section, select “CWA Family” from the drop down box.
  • Please list our family (Baxter) so that we get proper credit for your donation.
2. Send a check made out to:
Christian World Foundation or CWF with a note indicating “Baxter Adoption Fund.” You can mail it directly to CWA, 777 South Allen Road, Flat Rock, NC 28731.

3. You can send the check (made payable to Christian World Foundation) to us and we will forward it for you.

** keep a copy of your check for your taxes.  I'm not certain if they send a receipt out or not. 

Note: Even though CWA/CWF must tell donors that the funds are “accepted on an unrestricted basis,” 100% of the donations will go to our account. That’s just a disclaimer because of their non-profit status.  

Thanks so much!!
