About Us


We’ve consistently received the highest rating available for accountability and transparency.

We are fiscally responsible and financially healthy, having earned TEN 4-star ratings from Charity Navigator and GuideStar’s 2021 Gold Seal of Transparency – honors achieved by the most exceptional of rated charities. We take great pride in our financial efficiency, our transparency, and our accountability to our public and private investors. We keep our overhead low to maximize the percentage of your contributions that go directly into our programs, and we spend our program funds wisely so that as many children as possible may benefit from our work.

We are thankful for the support of our organizational investors, without whom we could never achieve success.

Investments by partners are critical to our success in changing the lives of children. Whether through a grant, sponsorship, or in-kind donation, we are grateful for the opportunities to work with others to help scale our reach and impact.
