Angela and Larry Tollen have been long-time supports of the Noah Z.M. Goetz Foundation, which helps couples navigate the frustrating and difficult adoption process. This particular grant was named after the Tollens, since they helped the Foundation raise the necessary funds create a perpetual endowment. The fund, managed by the Triangle Community Foundation, pays out grant monies on the interest that it generates. Over time as the principal grows, more families will be able to benefit from this resource.
“Noah Z.M. Goetz Foundation truly knows and understands the struggles that families go through with infertility,”
To date, the Foundation has awarded a total of eight grants, and six couples have successfully adopted children with their help.
