The Mixed Roots Foundation is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization (tax exempt public charity) and is the first and only national / global multicultural adoptee led community foundation that cross-sects the international, domestic, and foster care adoption experience. Mixed Roots Foundation’s primary role is to bring people and organizations together to make a difference and leave a legacy for the adoptee community and their families by guiding philanthropy to where it makes the most impact within the adoptee community.
With 6 in 10 people touched by adoption (that is an estimated over 100 million people in the U.S.), over half are trans-racial or multicultural adoption experiences. Currently, most adoption or financial assistance programs are geared towards parents wanting to adopt children, but there are no substantive programs that specifically support individuals after they get adopted including providing and streamlining more post-adoption and funding resources that addresses the whole life cycle of an adoptee from birth to death. Currently there are over 10 million adult adoptees here in the U.S. That is a lot of people!
Mixed Roots Foundation seeks to be a voice to help raise more awareness of the adoption experience…By connecting, promoting and supporting the global multicultural adoptee community and their families, Mixed Roots will be the missing link that will lead to more unified, enriched, healthier and productive lives for generations to come!
