In six 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 are split 50/50 between the United States and some of the poorest communities 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.
Our work across each of these pillars is underpinned by key principles of empowerment, gender and racial equity, elevating most impacted populations, and building resilience.
We are committed to ensuring that children have opportunities to develop as leaders in their communities and advocate for their rights, increased access to economic mobility and greater agency in shaping their futures.
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 grantmaking strategy recognizes the relationship between race and economic exclusion.
Those closest to the challenges must be a part of the solution, and Red Nose Day is working to prioritize nonprofit organizations that are 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.
