At Children Incorporated, we believe in full transparency of our financial management, which protects the trust you place in us as stewards of your generosity. We are consistently top-rated among charity watch organizations, and year after year, we have contributed at least 86% of all donations directly to the children we work with. Unlike other child sponsorship organizations, we work with volunteer coordinators around the world to ensure our programs are being implemented. This allows us to give more money directly to supporting children living in poverty.

What is Children Incorporated?

Children Incorporated provides basic necessities such as food, clothing, healthcare and educational support to children living in poverty in the U.S. and abroad. These essentials, so often taken for granted, are vital to a child’s growth and success in school. Each year, we give thousands of children in need all over the world a chance at a better life.

Today, thanks to our supporters around the globe, we now have 235 affiliated sites in 20 countries, including the United States, which serve over 20,000 children annually. To date, our programs have provided over 300,000 children with desperately needed support.

Your sponsorship does more than just feed or clothe a child. For $30 a month, you not only help meet the basic and critical needs of a child, but you also make an investment in his or her future.

Our policy has always been to consider the needs of each sponsored child on an individual basis. We work closely with our volunteer coordinators at our affiliated sites, who are familiar with each individual circumstance and the needs of every child in their care.

Sponsorship donations are sent to our affiliated sites – community centers, childcare centers, and established schools – at the beginning of each month in the form of subsidy stipends. Our onsite volunteer coordinators use the funds to purchase basic and education-related items for children in our program to ensure that they have what they need to do their very best and succeed in school. Additionally, children benefit from the knowledge that a caring person is concerned for their well-being.
