A list of 20 Foundations Supporting Projects on Children

Grant for Education and Literacy

Millions of children around the world are born into a stark reality: will they work in markets and mines, or go to school? Will they be trafficked into slavery, or be free? Will they be child soldiers, or students? Many children grow up in a daily life marked by violence; the images of war, abuse, persecution and loss of family. These traumatized children suffer depression, nightmares, loss of self-worth and often are the source of future aggression. Each year an estimated 15 million children die of hunger.

All children around the globe, no matter where they come from, have the rights to education, rights to health, rights to nutritive diet, rights to water, rights to care, and all other rights associated to human. The children who have the access to their rights grow as an independent individual who can break through the cycle of poverty be empowered to take their future into their own hands and play an active part in shaping it.

There are 800+ grant giving foundations supporting the projects on Child Rights in our donor database. If you are an organization focusing on any sector of Child Rights, be benefited with this list of 20 Foundations supporting Projects on Children.

The Global Fund for Children

The Global Fund for Children (GFC) invests in undercapitalized organizations that provide critical services to vulnerable children. The Fund finds and supports grassroots organizations worldwide to transform the lives of children on the edges of society – trafficked children, refugees, child laborers – and help them regain their rights and pursue their dreams.  Primary goal of the Fund is to invest early, help the partner organizations increase capacity, and leave them bigger and stronger than before. It also provides management assistance, capacity building, networking opportunities, and additional strengthening services for the lasting change.

The Global Fund for Children has supported 9 million children so far. The impact is thousands of children are going to school instead of to work; thousands more protecting themselves from HIV, escaping the bonds of slavery, and getting the childhood they deserve.

Grant applications generally fall between $25,000 and $75,000 range.
