Programs and results

What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

Children living in poverty are at risk of not receiving an education, because they suffer from hunger, lack access to healthcare, or don’t have proper clothes. Find out more about the adversity that impoverished children face, and what Children Incorporated is doing to help.

Our programs

What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

Sponsorship

Our life-changing work is made possible through the generosity of Children Incorporated sponsors. For $30 a month, a sponsor can assist a child with their basic necessities. Shortly after a child sponsorship request is received at our headquarters in North Chesterfield, a sponsor is sent a photograph of and information about a child. For a child, this assistance can mean the difference between hunger and adequate food, and between being illiterate and obtaining a good education. For a sponsor, it can mean a heartwarming relationship with a boy or girl in need, the satisfaction of relieving hunger and despair, and the opportunity to see the direct impact of giving. Sponsors are encouraged to write to their children; if a child lives in a country where the primary language is one other than English, letters are translated for both the sponsor and the child.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

To expand our donor reach both with new sponsorships, taking into consideration the changing demographic of younger sponsors while catering to the expectation of existing sponsors, to create new marketing material for Children Incorporated in conjunction with the new Children Incorporated website and database, to add corporate sponsors and foundations as Children Incorporated partners,
to develop and implement special projects platforms for new donors to have option to support outside of child sponsorship to increase community engagement through special events, volunteering, community outreach and promotion, new board member recruitment

We believe that we are goals and strategies directly correlates with Children Incorporated mission, vision, and values, and we believe that with the support of our donors and community partners, we can reach our goals and better the lives of children around the world for a long time to come.

We have accomplished a great deal. In 50 years, Children Incorporated has helped over 250,000 children by providing resources so each child has the opportunity to succeed. Children Incorporated has not accomplished the reach we would love to achieve. The more children we can serve in the future, the more impact we can have on the world.
