ClearView's Adoption Fund
The Fund is available to assist ClearView members with the costs of adoption, in the form of interest free loans and matching grants.

Donating to a specific family, either contact that family for instructions or make a payment directly to Lifesong For Orphans. The family’s name and fund number will need to be written in the check memo (for payments via check) or written in the purpose/gift preference boxes (online payments).
Donating to ClearView’s General Adoption Fund, payments via check can be made out to ClearView Baptist Church with “Adoption Fund” written in the memo. Online payments can be made via the Clearview Website.
Donating through Lifesong, “ClearView Baptist Church Adoption Fund” will need to be written in the check memo (payments via check) or written in the purpose/gift preference boxes (online payments).
