Like every family, company, and organization on the planet, GFC has had to adapt in the face of unprecedented difficulty during the coronavirus pandemic. But these challenges have also presented us with the opportunity to champion the grassroots leaders we support, and have confirmed our belief in the power of local solutions to address the world’s most pressing problems.
Last year we awarded more than $2.4 million in core and COVID-19 emergency grants to 152 organizations serving children and youth, coupling this flexible funding with tailored capacity development support. We formed two new networks of organizations working toward collective impact for young people in the United Kingdom and in rural Sierra Leone and Liberia. We also honored five organizations with awards recognizing their courage, perseverance, and dedication to meeting children’s urgent needs.
Our work would not be possible without you: global citizens who want to make positive, lasting change in the lives of children and youth. Thank you for being a part of the GFC story. You can read more about our work in our just-released 2019–2020 Annual Report.
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.
