Empowering women in philanthropy. Inspiring change for children.

Like the woman who founded Save the Children 100 years ago and continues to inspire us today, we are compassionate, courageous, pioneering and outspoken.

Save the Children, together with board members Gabriela Hearst, Peg McGetrick, Catherine Oppenheimer and Cokie Roberts, founded ONE HUNDRED STRONG in commemoration of our 100th anniversary in 2019. This philanthropic network, joined by colleagues around the globe, leverages women’s increasing influence – their voices, talents, networks and financial resources – to ensure every last child survives, learns and is protected.

Make an Impact

Like a ripple of change, the collective and individual impact of ONE HUNDRED STRONG will transform the lives of children, families and communities for generations to come. Ultimately, creating a better world for all of us.

ONE HUNDRED STRONG members have a variety of opportunities to align their philanthropic goals with our mission such as:

  • Empowering girls in all corners of the world to live their lives, speak their minds and determine their own futures
  • Restoring learning opportunities for out-of-school refugee girls and boys so they can reach their full potential
  • Ensuring more children in rural America enter school ready to learn, with the skills they need to succeed.
  • Increasing the number of children under 5 surviving deadly pneumonia in the developing world
  • Providing our senior leaders with the flexible funding to innovate and leverage new opportunities to meet children’s needs
