$5+Million: Corporate Partners
All across the globe, children are dying from preventable causes, missing out on education due to poverty or gender, suffering from violence, exploitation and neglect and are vulnerable in times of crisis. In every corner of the world, children need a strong voice to stand up for them, work on their behalf and make their lives better.
Chevron Corporation joined forces with Save the Children to help restore childcare centers in hard-hit areas of Mississippi following Hurricane Katrina in 2005. The company’s $2 million contribution to Save the Children supported the construction of two new childcare centers in Mississippi's Harrison and Hancock Counties. Chevron also supports Save the Children's micro-enterprise programs in Vietnam, basic education programs in Bangladesh, immunization programs in China, and provides basic necessities to Syrian refugee children in Iraq. Chevron remains committed to Save the Children's disaster relief efforts, having contributed to our emergency response efforts following monsoon flooding in Pakistan in 2010, Typhoon Ketsana in the Philippines in 2009, and Cyclone Nargis in Myanmar, as well as hurricanes Gustav and Ike in the U.S. in 2008.
In collaboration with Save the Children, The Walt Disney Company has made significant commitments to emergency preparedness, response and recovery efforts throughout the world.
Together, we are engaging children to work on disaster preparedness plans with their families in places like China, Peru and India using a co-developed Emergency Preparedness Activity Book. Disney characters – combined with Save the Children emergency tools and tips – help get lifesaving information into the hands of children. During response and recovery efforts, Disney’s support enabled us to respond faster by prepositioning supplies to bring relief to affected families when an emergency strikes. We are also working together to create PSAs to help get information out to the public and engage them in supporting our efforts. Additionally, Disney has made generous contributions to several global emergencies including the 2010 Earthquake and 2016 Hurricane Matthew in Haiti, Hurricane Sandy in the eastern U.S., Typhoon Haiyan in the Philippines, and the Nepal Earthquakes.
We salute the creative ways in which Disney works to make a lasting difference in children’s lives. In 2016 we were pleased to be included in Marvel Studios: Hero Acts, a charitable program focused on bringing help and hope to kids around the world. Fans were invited to post photos to unlock donations for Save the Children. Donations helped provide much-needed educational programs for nearly 123,000 children in Nepal, Haiti and the U.S.
Since 2005, ExxonMobil has partnered with Save the Children. Together, we strengthen international education and community development initiatives, and help provide a quality education and advanced learning in underserved regions.

In 2008, ExxonMobil launched an education program in Egypt called Ishraq, an integrated curriculum designed to provide girls with literacy and life skills, enabling them to become confident adults with economic and political benefits. The Foundation and ExxonMobil employees have contributed more than $7 million to Save the Children.
Save the Children and Google have worked together in the U.S., Latin America, the Middle East and Europe. In total, Google has supported Save the Children with more than $5 million in donations to our child-centered humanitarian and development programs, with a strong focus on global emergency response. We have collaborated on multiple emergencies and have benefited from Google technology, such as Google Maps and Google Earth as well as customized solutions for responses, which benefitted all NGOs during the Nepal Earthquake and the European Refugee Crisis. Notably, Google supported Save the Children’s response to the Ebola crisis through a public-facing 2:1 match campaign promoted on their Google search page in the U.S. Similarly, Google supported Save the Children’s response to the European Refugee crisis, with a public 1:1 match campaign alongside their other NGO partners. Google supports Save the Children’s efforts to promote Internet safety among school-age children in Latin America. Plus, we’ve benefited from Google employee engagement through the company’s annual “Googleserve” activities, as well as pro-bono engineering support around the world. Google acts as an advisory member of Save the Children’s global Humanitarian Leadership Academy, which seeks to improve the emergency response capacity of domestic NGOs in targeted regions around the world. In 2015, Save the Children presented Google with an award for their leadership commitment to supporting our work during times of crisis.
Keurig Green Mountain has teamed up with Save the Children to fund sustainable development programs and bring food security to families in coffee-growing places like Bolivia, Guatemala, Honduras, Nicaragua, El Salvador and Indonesia.

Since 2005, Toys“R”Us and the Toys“R”Us Children’s Fund has raised more than $9 million to help educate and protect children in the United States and around the world.
In the wake of large-scale crises, Toys“R”Us has helped ensure the safety of children in shelters and supported their emotional recovery. With contributions of more than $4.3 million in products and monetary grants, Toys“R”Us focused its efforts on the youngest victims of natural disasters, such as the Gulf Coast and West Virginia floods, Hurricane Sandy, the earthquake and tsunami in Japan and the tsunami in Southeast Asia.
Our disaster response work with Toys“R”Us received a Corporate Recognition for Humanitarian Assistance honor from InterAction, a coalition of U.S.-based international nongovernmental organizations focused on the world's poorest and most vulnerable people.
In 2016, Toys“R”Us launched the #PlayWithPurpose campaign which emphasized the importance of play in building the foundations for reading and mathematical literacy. During the campaign, Toys“R”Us and Babies“R”Us customers were encouraged to donate at-register to support our early childhood development programs, bringing essential learning through play to children in need across the U.S. The partnership allowed the two organizations to team up and help kids by reaching out to moms and dads, through original content and compelling storytelling leveraged across digital, social, and in-store channels. In addition, Toys“R”Us worked with the Save the Children Early Childhood experts to deliver a play-based curriculum with new developmental toys to children in its Early Steps to School Success home-visitation program.
By now, we know the investment we make in children’s lives early on – even before they enter kindergarten – can have a dramatic impact on their ability to be successful academically and socially and well into their adult years. We are proud that together, Toys“R”Us and Save the Children are helping to ensure more families feel equipped to prepare their children for lifelong learning.
