No gift is too small.


But a gift of $50 or more


will give something wonderful back to you


As we enter the holiday season, the mission of Families for Russian and Ukrainian Adoption, Including Neighboring Countries. (FRUA) is more true than ever. For over 20 years, FRUA has been here to offer hope, help and community for adoptive families.


FRUA now covers families who have adopted in 32 countries. We help adoptive families with educational resources, provide a community of adoptees for our children and young adults; an online and offline adoptive family support structure stretching across the United States and around the world, in regional chapters, on down to local Parent Organized Districts and one-on-one family support.


FRUA needs your help


This December 2015, we kick off our first major fund drive in three years, with the goal of raising $50,000 to cover annual expenses and expand the educational and community support we offer.


WHEN YOU GIVE A GIFT OF $50 OR MORE, you'll be eligible to receive a three-pack of Maria's Children gift cards, a special program purchase FRUA has made that has already helped orphans in Russia.

As an all-volunteer 501(c)(3), donations to FRUA all go to fund our work. More families than ever are turning to us for educational and family support. Increasingly, FRUA is being called upon to represent adoptive families with birth countries and policy-makers. In the past 18 months we have made major technology upgrades to better support members and regional chapters, including creating an entire members-benefit resource room. But we've more to do!


As you consider a gift, be it a one time donation, or a monthly gift to FRUA, consider that we have big plans...which is why we've launched this give campaign:

  • Grow FRUA's educational programming capacity– planning for webinar capability

  • Develop and launch a support program and membership structure for young adult adoptees

  • Provide improved support for our ten regional chapter structures

  • Replenish our FRUA scholarship fund

  • Replenish our orphan support program


This year, this month, today.....please consider a tax-deductible gift to FRUA. Help FRUA make a difference in the lives of adoptive families.
