Join our Children’s Changemakers Circle! By making a monthly gift to Global Fund for Children, you are making a meaningful change in the lives of children and youth worldwide.

For more than 25 years, GFC has pioneered our children-first, community-centered approach thanks to the generosity of our friends and supporters like you. Because of the contributions of our donors, GFC has become a leader in philanthropy by centering our partners and their needs. This was reflected in our 2021 Grantee Perception Report from the Center for Effective Philanthropy, when GFC scored in the top 1% of 300 funders on approachability, responsiveness, trust, and understanding grantees’ work. Your monthly gift gives GFC the ability to meet and respond to the ongoing needs of our community-based partners and youth leaders across the globe.

As a Monthly Changemaker, you are a champion of our flexible funding and capacity support at the grassroots, helping children and youth in communities worldwide to thrive. Your gift will always go where it is needed most: 87% of GFC’s budget is dedicated to direct programmatic work, from flexible funding to capacity support, network building, and more. You can trust that the majority of your contribution directly supports the life-changing work of local organizations and young people in communities all over the world.

Your Monthly Changemaker Benefits

Joining the Children’s Changemakers Circle comes with a few perks, such as:

  1. Ease of donation (and if something changes, it’s easy to cancel)
    Simply set up your recurring donation once, and you won’t have to think about it! If your card changes or is declined, we’ll be in touch. We know life changes and you may need to rethink your monthly expenses, so you can easily cancel your gift at any time by following these instructions: Click on the service center link in any email receipt. If you haven’t already made an account, you will be prompted to create one. In your account, you can cancel or adjust your monthly donations. If you have any issues, please call GFC at 202-331-9003 or send an email to [email protected] with your name and the email address associated with your monthly gift. Do not send any credit card information by email.
  2. Fewer asks for donations!
    When you join the Children’s Changemakers Circle, you will receive fewer appeals in your inbox from us. At most, we will reach out once or twice a year – and only when we really need some extra support!
