The fight for children happens 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, and that’s particularly true as we face such an uncertain future. Please make a gift today to ensure the needs of children remain front and center as our nation confronts the parallel crises of systemic racism and COVID-19—and whatever challenges lie ahead. With your support, we will continue fighting nonstop to make sure our children’s voices are heard in the halls of power and their needs are met with urgency.
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.
Every child is precious and full of potential.
That’s why, for nearly 50 years, the Children’s Defense Fund has been relentless in our work to help lift children out of poverty, protect them from violence, and ensure they have the opportunities they need to thrive and succeed.
We continue to work every day to give every child a healthy start, a quality early childhood experience, a level educational playing field, stable homes, and safe communities free from violence.
