Investing in impact for children

A happy, laughing family thanks to regular donations

Save the Children partners with individuals, foundations and private ancillary funds to deliver innovative programs and services that address the needs of the most vulnerable children in Australia and overseas.

Philanthropic support that really helps children

Our philanthropic partners support a range of programs that create immediate and lasting change in children's lives throughout Australia, Asia, the Pacific and Africa.

In Australia, we deliver programs for children in disadvantaged urban areas, as well rural and remote locations. Our work aims to improve the lives of Australian children through early childhood education, youth engagement and children protection and family support programs.

We work in 124 countries around the world to ensure children no longer die from preventable diseases, have the opportunity to learn and grow through access to education and are safe and protected from harm. We save the lives of millions of children each year and give a better chance in life to millions more.

Make a life-changing investment for children

Our philanthropic partners are vital to helping us create better lives for children. You can choose to invest in a specific project, or you can provide flexible funding that helps us build our capacity as an organisation so we help even more children.

You will receive detailed project proposals and budgets so you can be sure your investment is being well spent. As the project progresses, you will receive detailed program updates and financial reports showing how you are making a difference to children's lives and the long-term, sustainable impact your investment is making. In some cases, it may also be possible for you to visit the project you are supporting.
