registered charities for at least 10 years.
A GLOBAL RESOURCE FOR PHILANTHROPISTS
We change children's lives and now, we are changing, too.
Now, in this 25th Anniversary Year, we are becoming a Global Community Foundation uniquely focused on the needs of vulnerable children:
OPTIONS FOR ANNUAL & LEGACY GIVING
As a global community foundation, we will provide donors with options for annual and legacy giving. Our leadership will assist in matching donor intent with the needs of children from around the world through our trusted partner organizations we refer to as Changemakers, with guaranteed results.
BUILDS ON OUR TRACK RECORD OF SUCCESS
World of Children Global Community Foundation will manage and distribute funds from donors for financial awards to our community of Changemakers using the proven community foundation business model.
GLOBAL RESOURCE FOR PHILANTROPISTS
Our vision is to become a global resource for philanthropists who wish to support organizations serving the world’s most vulnerable children but may not have the bandwidth to search and verify on a global scale, a process that World of Children has perfected and now makes available to all. World of Children will continue maximizing what we have learned in our 25 years of work to discover these Changemakers, match them with donor interests, and guarantee impact.
“World of Children is one of the most effective and efficient mid-sized nonprofit organizations in the world.”
