Special Announcement


21 May 2020: An Evening of Courage, Global Fund for Children’s 2020 Gala, has now been postponed until April 2021 due to the global coronavirus pandemic.

We originally postponed the event until 8 October 2020, but it soon became clear that a full year postponement was a necessary precaution to protect the health of our Gala guests, their loved ones, and their communities. We are dedicated to ensuring the safety and wellbeing of our family of GFC supporters.

Thank you for your partnership, support, and solidarity as we work to overcome this global crisis together. Learn more about how we are supporting children affected by COVID-19, and stay tuned for updates on the 2021 event.



Join us to celebrate more than 25 years of helping children and youth around the world.
