Adoption is Expensive. Many Children Need Homes. See the problem?

Dave Thomas Foundation for Adoption 100Best Adoption-Friendly WorkplacesTCG is proud to be recognized for offering adoption and foster care assistance to our employees.

TCG is proud to once again be named one of the Best Adoption-Friendly Workplaces by the Dave Thomas Foundation for Adoption. The award recognizes workplaces with strong adoption benefit programs, scoring companies on financial reimbursement, paid leave, and the percentage of employees eligible for those benefits. This is the sixth time TCG has been named to the list.

A strong advocate for family-friendly benefits, TCG offers comprehensive benefits to adoptive and foster parents.

  • For adoptive parents, TCG reimburses up to $18,000 in adoption-related expenses for each child. The reimbursement covers agency, legal, immigration, and other associated fees, plus transportation, lodging, and immunizations costs.
  • For foster parents, TCG offers $1,000 of foster care assistance for the first year that a TCGer is a foster parent and up to $2,000 for families with multiple foster children.
  • TCGers may allocate up to $13,570 of pre-tax income to a flexible spending account each year to help cover adoption and foster care expenses, and TCG’s assistance program facilitates that account.
  • Adoptive and foster parents may take up to three weeks of paid leave after bringing home a child, and are provided access to emergency childcare services.

Valuing families is one TCG’s core values, and supporting TCGers in growing their families through adoption and foster care is integral to staying true to this value and our mission to improve the world, in big and little ways, every day.
