About Us

For more than 80 years, Save the Children has been an independent force for change in the lives of children in need.

We make it possible for them to grow up healthy, safe and prepared for a better future. With the trust and generous support of people like you, and by working hand-in-hand with families and communities in rural America, and in more than 120 countries around the world, we have nurtured the seed of hope for millions of children.

When you give gifts to those you love, consider giving a truly meaningful gift — a donation in honor of that special person. Your valuable gift — school supplies, library books, essential vitamins and medicine — can help us transform the lives of needy children and ensure their futures are bright.

Just consider the smiles your gift will bring…

“ Your support has brought new opportunities and new hope to children who had none. ”

- Carolyn Miles, President & CEO
