Our Mission

The Young Patrons (YP) of Save the Children are young professionals and philanthropic leaders in the New York City metropolitan area who champion the cause of children and actively seek to raise awareness of the challenges that children face around the world. We are dedicated to projects that align with Save the Children’s mission and collectively support the needs of the world's poorest children, with specific focus on education.

Our Vision

As Young Patrons, we seek to leverage our collective network and fundraising capabilities to support the cause of opportunity for all children. We’ve dedicated our efforts to Save the Children’s Return to Learning Fund, which aims to create a holistic program to help children return school within 30 days of displacement, because we value the significance of a quality, uninterrupted education to humans around the world. We look forward to a future where every child in the world has access to such an experience.

Our Focus

Our annual fundraiser, the Young Patrons Gala, is intended to raise awareness and funds to support this vision. We host additional meetings and events throughout the year with the same goal: to spread the word and commit to transforming the lives of children and the future we share with them.
