Iowans for Adoption proudly hosts two adoption events every year. This includes the IFA annual Gala and the Gingerbread Run/Walk for Adoption. These events are always a highlight to our organization because we are helping Iowans become educated about adoption/foster care, awarding companies that provide adoption benefits to families and providing opportunities for adoptive families and birth parents to celebrate adoption in Iowa. See the events below for more details! If you would like to volunteer for either of these events, please send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you for your help!
Due to COVID-19, IFA unfortunately made the decision to postpone its fourth annual Gala. We value the health and safety of all our volunteers and supporters. In the mean time, we are working diligently to follow our IFA mission and keeping education a top priority. We have been using social media, digital tools and billboard messaging as an additional way to educate Iowans about adoption and foster care. We will be sure to keep in touch on a date for the 2021 Gala. Thank you for your continued support.
Our 2019 opening keynote, Renee Hardman, discusses the power of adoption to IFA attendees.
Gingerbread Run/Walk for Adoption
The Gingerbread Run/Walk for Adoption is a staple of Iowans for Adoption. Held in the fall, the run is a great way for Iowans to celebrate youth and families who have been impacted by adoption.
