The Simon Society

Sam Simon, critically acclaimed writer, producer and director, best known as co-creator of "The Simpsons," was a comic genius. He was also an ardent humanitarian and Save the Children champion. Although he died in 2015, his vision continues to transform children’s lives and futures.

Save the Children established The Simon Society to honor Sam's extraordinary commitment to investing in childhood. We invite you to join this group of our most dedicated and generous supporters with an annual gift of $50,000 or more, strategically positioning us to achieve three critical breakthroughs for children:

  • No child under age 5 dies from preventable causes
  • All children learn from quality basic education
  • No child under age 5 dies from preventable causes

As a member of The Simon Society, you will have the opportunity to connect with Save the Children experts, as well as other Simon Society members – and experience firsthand the impact of your support.

The Vision of Sam Simon

"For nearly 30 years, Sam Simon was a loyal champion for children and traveled the world to see Save the Children’s work up close. In gratitude for his decades-long support, we created the The Sam Simon Society, a global philanthropic community that supports our agency’s work to improve the lives of children whenever and wherever the need is greatest." — Carolyn Miles, Save the Children President and CEO
