What your gift makes possible

Children need stable homes, quality health care, nutritious food, good schools, and safe neighborhoods to succeed. Even before the COVID-19 crisis, these basic building blocks were out of reach for too many children, especially children of color. We’re fighting on all possible fronts to make sure every child in America has what they need to thrive.

Give with confidence

The Children’s Defense Fund is highly rated by many organizations, including GuideStar, Charity Navigator, Great Nonprofits, BBB Wise Giving Alliance, America’s Best Charities, and CharityWatch. This recognition is a demonstration of our commitment to accountability and stewardship to our donors and our mission.
