About Us

Building brighter futures worldwide:

Children’s Fund works at the grassroots level with community leaders to meet the needs of children, youth and their families. Children’s Fund is a public charity that develops community capacity to address local needs and provides continuing support to keep worthy efforts going.

Children’s Fund provides direct services to poor children, youth and families in less developed countries. We also make micro grants to community leaders to support locally developed projects. In addition, we serve as the agent for charities in other countries by receiving designated funds on their behalf.

Children’s Fund is committed to accountability, and we send teams to evaluate the projects we support because we want to be sure that our investments in children are sound. We encourage those who have a vision to improve the lives of children in the U.S. or in developing countries to make their dreams a reality.
