Building Families and Futures Through Adoption Grants & Educational Scholarships


How Can We Offer Scholarships & Adoption Grants?


All of our opportunities for birth mothers and adoptive families are funded through tax deductible donations from individuals, estates, and corporations. Unfortunately, our requests for assistance continue to far exceed our ability to provide the necessary funding. Please consider supporting our efforts today, to help a child find a forever family or to reward the courage of a birth mother. If you have questions about our mission or how you can help, please call us at (530) 271-1756.

Lifetime Adoption Foundation's Founder, Mardie Caldwell

About Lifetime Adoption Foundation’s Founder,

Mardie Caldwell


Mardie Caldwell is dedicated to finding new and innovative ways to help those touched by adoption. She has continuously remained faithful to serving her clients compassionately and without judgment. One of her main missions is to equip women with the tools they need to thrive. Mardie does this through her non-profit organization, Lifetime Adoption Foundation. The foundation is dedicated to the development of healthy and fulfilling futures, through scholarships for birth mothers, adoption grants for families opening their hearts to hard-to-place children, and advocacy for families who are living in sub-poverty situations.
Mardie has been recognized for her extensive work with women through being awarded The Soroptimist Ruby Award: For Women Helping Women. This award recognizes women who are working to improve the lives of women and girls through their personal or professional activities.
It has been Mardie’s passion to help women with their educational needs, and to find loving Christian homes for hard-to-place children. Without Mardie’s dedication, many of these children would remain languishing in the foster care system.

“I just wanted to thank you so much for my scholarship award. I am so thankful that I was able to receive the money. After placing my daughter into adoption, I promised myself that I would work hard to get a college education. I am so motivated, and this scholarship reminds me that ALL of my hard work and choices are paying off.”
-one of Lifetime Foundation’s scholarship recipients
“I know I can obtain a positive place in the world. I also know that by continuing my education, I can set an example for other girls in my situation — that you can do anything you put your mind to. I know my child will be proud.”
