April Dinwoodie

Coalition Team Members

Advisory Committee


 April is the Chief Executive of the Donaldson Adoption Institute based in Manhattan.

April is a fierce advocate for children and families for whom adoption and foster care are everyday realities. She created a specialized mentoring program called “Adoptment,” in which adults who were adopted or who had spent time in foster care serve as mentors to youth in care. She is also a co-founder and Vice President of the Board of Fostering Change for Children, a progressive nonprofit that helps drive innovation in the child welfare system.

As an adopted person herself, April brings an important perspective to her work and her commitment to the Coalition.
