“Our family has supported Global Fund for Children since 2001. GFC uniquely gets our resources to organizations around the world that we would not otherwise have access to, and that are doing the most important work: helping safeguard children and giving them the skills they need to succeed.”
Stacey Keare, Girls Rights Project and Silicon Valley Leadership Council

Global Fund for Children (GFC) UK Trust, created in 2006, is a UK registered charity (UK charity number 1119544). We work to generate vital income, create new fundraising opportunities, and raise awareness of the invaluable work of GFC’s grassroots grantees. Our aim is to extend the reach of GFC in the United Kingdom, Europe, and beyond.
