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.
