Weddings: The I DO Foundation allows percentages of wedding-related purchases to benefit The Custody Project at no cost to you. Couples and guests making wedding-related purchases of invitations, gifts, honeymoons, and favors, can help TCP without a dime leaving a pocket.

I DO also allows a couple to create a Charity Registry so that their guests can donate to the charity of the couple's choice in lieu of purchasing a gift for them. When wedding couples do this, The Custody Project receives 92% of your donation, and 100% when you elect to cover the 8% processing fee. (When you click on the The I DO Foundation Donation Registry link, only our address and mission statement may be visible until you log in). Just Give: 866.587.8448
