Our History

In 1964, after personally witnessing the deprivation of children in Guatemala, our founder, Jeanne Clarke Wood, established Children Incorporated out of her home in Richmond, Virginia. Mrs. Wood began writing letters and seeking assistance for the 95 children she met on her travels. This became the first Children Incorporated project.

Thanks to past and current supporters around the globe, we now have over 300 projects in 23 countries which serve over 20,000 children annually. To date, over 250,000 children have been provided opportunities for growth and education, and have experienced the support and encouragement our programs provide.


We believe in full transparency in our financial management. This protects the trust that you place in us as the stewards of your generosity. Choose a link below to view our most recent financial reports. Please Contact Us if you have further questions regarding these documents.
