What happens when I join Team Tomorrow?

When you become a recurring donor to Save the Children, you make a powerful commitment to changing the lives of children here at home and across the world. Team Tomorrow is a group of passionate, caring individuals who are committed to giving kids a healthy start, the opportunity to learn and protection from harm.

Your support reaches out to 120 countries and helps more than 183 million children, including 837,000 here in the United States. You commit to a recurring gift that ensures program services are reliable and never interrupted due to lack of funding.

Your recurring gift also helps ensure that Save the Children can act quickly when an emergency hits to provide immediate disaster relief. We are often the first on the ground to address the unique needs of children. Children require special care and supplies at times of emergency. Children are at risk of suffering long-term developmental, physical and psychological setbacks following a disaster. As a result of your compassionate support, we also offer programming for children focused on their health, safety and education to help them achieve success in their lives.

Our promise to you is to share the stories of children whose lives you are changing. We’ll do this through:

  • Regular email updates
  • Reports from our relief workers in the community
  • Results and highlights of the programs you’re funding
  • Exclusive invitations to special events

What makes Team Tomorrow different from Partner for Children?

Team Tomorrow will allow you to hear more about the impact you are having on a specific issue you care about, such as the climate crisis, conflict, inequality, or poverty in the United States. You will receive regular updates on how your giving is helping create positive, irreversible change for and with children. You will also have the opportunity to hear from children, community leaders, teachers, parents, Save the Children staff and individuals who work for the grassroots organizations with which we collaborate on the change we are creating together, with your support.

Will my Team Tomorrow support always cost the same amount?

Not necessarily. Many partners choose to upgrade their gift periodically (Thank you!), allowing us to do even more for children around the world. There are also instances where we prompt this upgrade due to the rising cost of supplies in the countries where we work. We do this to ensure that our programs remain unaffected by economic ebbs and flows. Please know that these small increases pooled together make a HUGE difference for kids. Every cent you give makes change for children. We can’t thank you enough for your ongoing support!

Your Supporter Experience Center is also happy to assist you and can be reached at 1-800-728-3843, Monday-Friday 8am-5pm (EST).
