Why monthly donations are important

Our regular givers are a vital part of Save the Children. Find out why regular giving is so important - and beneficial for our supporters - below:

Developing long term solutions

Having guaranteed income from our generous monthly givers means we are able to plan for long term solutions and invest in bigger projects.

This means we are able to look not just at reactive work to support children - for example after natural disasters - but also develop sustainable and ongoing support for children.

Convenient for you

Many of our monthly givers feel it is easier to set up a regular gift as this way they are able to give proportionately more than they might for just a single donation, but spread the cost across the year.

You can budget accordingly and having a donation coming out as a monthly payment can be easier to manage.

Ready for emergencies

When a disaster strikes it's always children that suffer the most. Our Emergency Fund is designed to ensure we are ready to react quickly, and effectively when children are at risk.

Whatever the disaster, thanks to our Emergency Fund, we can be by a child's side within days of a disaster striking. Our regular givers are at the core of this vital work.

Meet Fantastic Fatima*

Fatima smiles and laughs at the camera. She is nine months old in this picture and wearing an orange and white top.

*names changed

At just 9 months old, severe malnutrition left Fatima too weak to stand. But with the determination and strength of her mum, she was able to get vital treatment and nutritious food from a Save the Children-supported health centre.  

Five months on, she blossomed into a healthy baby - walking and playing with big sister, Fatun*.

With the right support, there are endless opportunities for kids like Fatima. A donation from people like you can help more children like her get the life-saving treatment they need.

The impact of donations

In 2022, the Save the Children movement reached 48.5m children in 115 countries including the UK, thanks to supporters like you.

We helped 33m children survive through our movement's health and nutrition work. We and our partners:

  • tackled pneumonia – the single largest infectious killer of young children worldwide. Inspiring extra global funding, pushing to make vaccines more available and providing oxygen to children struggling to breathe
  • fought undernutrition – supporting community-based work in Kenya, South Sudan, Afghanistan and Yemen to diagnose, treat and prevent malnutrition. Enabling families and caregivers to detect acute malnutrition themselves, vital for those who live hours from the nearest health centre or cannot afford to pay for care

We supported 9.2m children to learn through our movement's education programmes. We worked with communities, partners and governments to:

  • make sure children living in conflicts and emergencies – including refugee children – can get the education they tell us is their number one priority
  • fight for girls’ right to an education and tackle obstacles – such as child marriage – that stand in their way
  • improve learning for children during their crucial early years – around the world and among the UK’s poorest communities – when it can make the biggest difference.

We fought relentlessly to protect 3.8m children through our movement's protection programmes and spoke up for millions more around the world.  In 2022, we worked with our partners to help children on the frontline of some of the world’s worst conflicts and in contexts where children are at risk of harm:

  • In South Sudan, we supported women’s rights organisations to lead workshops with our humanitarian staff and partners to develop guidelines to make sure they recruit, retain and promote female humanitarian workers.
  • In Ukraine, we worked with 27 local partner organisations to give food, water, fuel, heaters and essential supplies like toothbrushes and soap to families who’d fled their homes. Along with helping reunite lost children with their families and set up safe spaces for them to play and recover.
  • In Madagascar, we worked to strengthen people’s understanding of child protection and the local systems required to keep children safe from violence, abuse and exploitation.
