Original Post

huzzah! i've finally managed to understand the entire process of registering a charitable fun and am going to subit all the paperwork tomorrow. i'm filling it out now, and it's come to the place where i need to name the foundation.

the Adia foundation is nice, but not very telling. i thought of 'Gifts of God' but i don't really want it to seem to have any particular religious affiliation.

any creative ideas from Adia's etsy pals? not only will the foundation be there for Adia, but also for whatever outreach projects come later to help children like her. i'd love to hear your suggestions!!

love,
nutmeg

ehehe - 'registering a charitable fun'. oh typos - nothing about 25 pages of paperwork could be construed as fun.. ;)

it's ging to be really wonderful in the end, though, because as a registered fund we can do actual press releases to major news sources here and abroad.

let's think of a catchy name so everyone will take notice!

I'm not good at ideas today, sorry :( I'm so happy you're getting this out there, good luck to both of you and you are both in my thoughts every day!

before you do that, you might want to research what is taken by going to give.org, charitynavigator.org and all around google. (give.org is the bbb's charity side)

I think it would be lovely to have Adia's name in there somewhere. If it weren't for her, so many of us wouldn't even be aware. I don't have any specific ideas, though. lol

I like that, beat :)

adia children's fund....i like that! too, anyone who speaks Arabic will read the translation of 'gift of God' in it, without that being too much of a focal point though.

let's use it, then! here i go to shuffle thru the forms and officially write it down :)

i'll update here again when i have news on the successful registration - should take about a week.
