Nearly half of the world’s 6 billion people live on less than $2 a day,
72 million children world wide are out of school,
Malnutrition affects 1 in 3 children in developing countries,
4500 children die each day from unsafe water and lack of basic sanitation facilities
Change for Children exists to change this.
Since 1976, donations have enabled Change for Children to support grassroots projects in developing countries that offer solutions to many challenges caused by extreme poverty. Schools have been constructed giving generations of children room to learn, training has been provided offering sustainable incomes, water wells have been drilled, resources protected, and rights have been achieved. Your contributions have resulted in tremendous positive change!
Your donations and fundraising support also allow us to qualify for grants that match or multiply your contribution. As part of our sustainability practice, 15% of each donation dollar is put into a special administration fund used for overhead costs necessary to run CFC and meet the standards required of us by various federal, provincial regulation bodies and our funders. Any surplus funds support our projects and programs.
Copies of Change for Children’s audited financial statements are available by request. A summary of each year’s finances is available on the back page of each Annual Report – which can be downloaded or viewed here. Change for Children is a registered charitable organization: 1188 9496 RR0001.
