Save the Children, the preeminent voice for children in the U.S. and around the world, offers tailored employee engagement opportunities to enhance corporate support and complement company values. Your employees will learn about your philanthropic commitments, Save the Children’s pioneering programs and leading advocacy effort, and how our organizations are working together to transform the lives of children, changing the course of their futures and ours.

Company-Wide Opportunities

Workplace Giving & Matching Gifts

Save the Children can provide the tools and resources you need to create a giving campaign for employees. For example, we can offer employees a convenient opportunity to give via a co-branded online donation page and provide our creative assets, like web banners and brochures for internal communications.

Many companies partner with Save the Children to double their impact and incentivize employee giving through corporate matching gift programs.

Save the Children is also a member charity of Global Impact, Global Giving and United Way. If you don't see Save the Children in your local listing, you can write us in. Click here for more information!
