Founded in 2022 to pay it forward to future families

The Ready for Kids Foundation is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that provides grants and resources for families throughout the adoption process. Our program helps parents with the financial burdens the adoption process can create.

You can help us achieve our mission by joining with a monthly pledge or a one-time gift. Your support helps us make a difference in the lives of kids and families across our community. Right now, our funds specifically go to helping families in the state of Ohio



The Ready for Kids Foundation was founded in 2022 by Matt Cochrell. Matt was incredibly blessed to receive the gift of adoption from amazing parents that impacted his life in an immeasurable, positive way. It is important to Matt and the foundation that support is provided to future families as they find their way to one another. Every child deserves the opportunity to grow up in a loving and supportive home.

Ways we give back:

  • Grants and Financial Aid for Prospective Parents
  • Resources and Guidance to Organizations that Can Help
  • We are Using Donations to Create an Amazing ‘One-Stop’ Website- coming soon*
  • Fundraising and Awareness Events
  • More on the way!
