PRLog - Aug. 4, 2014 - GREENSBORO, N.C. -- Greensboro, NC—The inaugural Angela and Larry Tollen Family Grant, awarded earlier this year, is playing an important role in helping recipients Dori and Terrence Wilson fulfill their dream of starting a family. The grant will help the Wilsons cover a portion of the fees and costs associated with the adoption process.

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.
