Save the Children’s Centennial Campaign

For 100 years, compassionate people like you have been supporting our mission – that the world’s most marginalized and deprived children have a healthy start in life, access to a basic education and protection from harm. Through our Promise of Childhood Centennial Campaign we seek to secure $100 million in new funds to accelerate our work for children today and ensure we are ready to meet the challenges of tomorrow.

End Childhood Deaths from Pneumonia

Help us mobilize the resources and awareness needed to bring lifesaving affordable care to children in the countries with the highest burden of disease.

Return Refugee Children to Learning

Help us restore learning opportunities for refugee children within 30 days of displacement and ensure that education is a core component of emergency services that all refugee children receive, along with food, water and shelter.

Promote Gender Equality

Help us support our new Center for Girls and Gender Equality which aims to develop innovative programs and implanting advocacy and research initiatives designed to highlight gender quality and empower marginalized girls and women to make decisions that will improve the course of their lives.

Invest in Emerging Challenges and New Ideas

100 Years of Change for Children

Our extraordinary story begins in 1919, when our founder Eglantyne Jebb began fighting for the rights of children in war-torn Europe after World War I. Today, 100 years later, we continue to raise our voices to secure immediate and lasting change for children in need. LEARN MORE
