As long as there are children living in poverty and facing inequity, every day is Red Nose Day

Child poverty has long been a crisis, but right now it is nothing short of an emergency. A gift of any size can protect children facing poverty from the ripple effects of COVID-19.

We need your support to help give children living in the most vulnerable communities across the U.S. and around the world a chance at a better life and a brighter future.

As long as there are children living in poverty and facing inequity, every day is Red Nose Day

Even when the unpredictable happens, like the crisis of COVID-19, your ongoing support helps give children living in the most vulnerable communities across the U.S. and around the world a chance at a better life and a brighter future.

A monthly gift goes even further, because giving a little each month adds up to big change.

When you give monthly, you’ll also become a member of The Sandbox, Red Nose Day’s community of monthly givers.

All children have the right to a healthy future.

What does a healthy future look like?

It is providing a holistic balance of our four Red Nose Day pillars: safety, health, education and empowerment.

A healthy body and mind that gives children the opportunity to achieve their hopes and dreams. Access to quality healthcare and nutritious food to ensure children can grow strong without worry. It is a space to nurture wellness, a safe place to call home, the right tools to learn, and it is empowering young people to lead us into this bright future.

We can make this a reality.

Together, let’s build a healthy future for children.

In eight years, we’ve raised more than

$275 Million

to help end child poverty and positively impacted nearly

30 Million children

in America and around the world.

Money raised through Red Nose Day goes into the Red Nose Day Fund and is issued as grants to support a range of programs delivered by trusted grantee partners working across the US and around the world.

In the US alone, around 12 million children – that’s nearly 1 in 6 – live in poverty. Globally, about 663 million children are deprived of one or more basic needs, like food, shelter, safe drinking water, sanitation, healthcare or education.

Red Nose Day supports programs that address both the immediate needs of children in poverty while fostering long-term change. Funds raised through Red Nose Day support programs that work to end the cycle of child poverty and ensure a healthy future for all children around the world.

Cross-Portfolio Focuses

Our work across each of these pillars is underpinned by key principles of gender equity, racial equity, elevating most impacted populations, and building resilience.

Gender Equity

Gender Equity

Our approach to poverty reduction takes into account the historic marginalization of women and girls, as well as harmful gender norms and pressures that have affected both boys and girls.

Racial equity

Racial Equity

Children of color have been unduly impacted by the effects of poverty, and our grant-making strategy considers the intersectionality of race with economic disenfranchisement.

Elevating the Most Impacted Populations

Elevating the Most Impacted Populations

The voices of those closest to key challenges must be uplifted, and at the forefront of shaping sustainable solutions. That's why Red Nose Day is working to partner with nonprofit organizations led and staffed by people from the communities being served.
