100 Years
Save the Children's Centennial Campaign

Our extraordinary story begins in 1919, when our founder Eglantyne Jebb launched the pioneering fight to save children in war-torn Europe. Since then, Save the Children has been on the leading edge of global progress for children. Now on the threshold of our second 100 years, we continue to be driven by the same clear and compelling vision – that all children have a healthy start in life, access to a quality education and protection from harm, regardless of who they are or where they live. Because every last child deserves a future.

“Together we will demonstrate that a better world for children isn’t a product of our imagination but rather the result of our proven and innovative programs and relentless advocacy, reflecting our collective commitment to do our best for children every day.” 
Carolyn Miles, President & CEO

An Investment in Childhood

As we approach our 100th anniversary in 2019, we seek to partner with loyal supporters and new visionaries to transform the lives of all children. We are launching the Save the Children Centennial Campaign, an ambitious strategy to secure $100 million in new funds. With these funds, we’ll do whatever it takes to reach the most vulnerable children in the United States and around the world.

Save the Children’s Centennial Campaign will have impact far beyond its immediate goal of raising $100 million for children. Not only is it an immediate investment in children’s lives and futures, it will catalyze resources and commitments from governments and the private sector to do more for children.

You can invest in Save the Children’s work in many ways. The investment areas are diverse and offer donors the chance to align directly with opportunities to reach every last child.
