Global Fund for Children
The Global Fund for Children’s mission is to advance the dignity of children and youth around the world. GFC pursues its mission by making small grants to innovative community based organizations working with some of the worlds most vulnerable children and youth complemented by a dynamic media programme that through books documentary photography and filming, highlights the issues affecting children and celebrates the global society in which we live.
GFC made its first grants in 1997 using royalties from its children’s book publishing venture. Since then, GFC’s grant making capacity has grown dramatically, from $ 3,000 in 1997 to approximately $ 2 mn during the 2005-2006 fiscal year. To date, GFC has disbursed over $ 12 mn in 69 countries to 323 grantee partners.
