In eight years, we’ve raised more than
to help end child poverty and positively impacted nearly
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.
By supporting children and fostering change across these key strategic focus areas, we can break the cycle of poverty and create a more just world.
Strategic Focus Areas
Our work across each of these pillars is underpinned by key principles of gender equity, racial equity, elevating most impacted populations, and building resilience.
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.
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.
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.
We are committed to supporting programs that strengthen children and families’ capacity to recover from the effects of poverty and build more resilient communities.
