Thank you for making Global Fund for Children’s 2021 United States Gala a success!

We’re thrilled to have had nearly 200 guests join us on April 29, 2021. Thanks to your contributions at the US Gala, you helped us raise $729,505 for children and youth around the world! Our work would not be possible without you.

Celebration of Courage

The US Gala is part of our Celebration of Courage Campaign. This month of virtual events includes a UK Gala on April 22; a global conversation on education during COVID-19, featuring young female leaders, on May 6; and the announcement of the 2021 Juliette Gimon Courage Award winners on May 20.

Stay involved

If you enjoyed our UK Gala, join us for more Celebration of Courage events to continue engaging with organizations and leaders building a better world for children everywhere. You can stay in touch by following us on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram and by subscribing to our email updates. We’ll keep you posted on innovative work and inspiring stories from our local partners around the world.
