Life's most persistent and urgent question is, 'What are you doing for others?'

CS100 Report - Thank YOU!

In 2019, ChildSavers100 (CS100) became the strategic vision to double the number of children we serve by 2024, the year we turn 100 years old.

To make this concept reality, investments had to be made to expand programs, support staff, update infrastructure, renovate the building, and grow our endowment. A feasibility study indicated this would cost about $15M, a significant lift for an organization raising approximately $2M a year.

We are proud to share that in three years, we exceeded that fundraising goal, and we have almost doubled the number of children we serve, reaching an astonishing 34,000 last fiscal year.

As we conclude the most successful fundraising campaign in ChildSavers history, a question that's on our minds is, “what’s next?” Read our CS100 report below to find out!
