Become a Monthly Donor

Thanks for your donation. Your generosity lets us be first on the ground during a disaster – and the last to leave. But even after a crisis – there’s still so much need here in the U.S. and around the world. Please set up a monthly donation. Because when generous people like you commit to becoming a monthly donor, it supports Save the Children’s mission to help children wherever the need is greatest..

$5 – Your gift can help provide a warm blanket to give comfort to a child living in a shelter after a hurricane, tornado or other disaster.

$10 – Your gift can buy a schoolbag so a child who has lost everything can return to school.

$20 – Your gift can provide clean water kits – soap, a bucket and aquatabs (to purify water) for a family of 5 for one month.
