Hunger doesn't take a holiday. Donate Today.

For millions of families struggling to put food on the table, this time of year is especially difficult. But if we come together, we can help address the immediate needs of children and families facing hunger.

A gift of any size to the Full Plate Project by Red Nose Day not only helps provide nourishing meals to children who urgently need them, but also supports long-term solutions to address food insecurity. Please give what you can.

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.

Complete your gift to make a difference.

Meet Our Grantee Partners

Programs must have a strong track record, demonstrate clear and measurable impact, and have a significant focus on children. Grants address the immediate needs of children living in poverty, as well as foster long-term change for vulnerable children living in high-risk situations.

Our Approach to Grant-Making

Our goal is to build deep partnerships with our grantees and to learn from their work. We strive to continually integrate what we learn from the sector and share insights with our grantee partners and the broader philanthropic community. Beyond providing funds, we provide value to our grantees through our commitment to: 

Our Approach

  • Measurement


  • Coalition


  • Advocacy


Social Change Programs We Support

Our portfolio of grants delivers against our core goals: to keep children safe, healthy and educated. When determining our grants strategy and selecting grantees, we take three attributes into consideration. 


We make data-based decisions about our grants and fund evidence-based programs that demonstrate impact.


We help diverse groups of children across a broad geographic scope and fund a range of interventions that address both basic needs and long-term change. 


We are responsive to beneficiary needs and emerging global trends. 

Our work is aligned to Sustainable Development Goals as defined by the United Nations.


No Poverty, Zero Hunger, Good Health & Well-Being, Quality Education, Gender Equality, Clean Water & Sanitation, Reduced Inequalities 

Organizations that meet our grants selection criteria and align with our mission are invited to submit a proposal to the Red Nose Day Fund. After proposals have been reviewed and assessed by the Grants Team, they must then be approved by the Grants Committee and Board of Directors. Unfortunately, we cannot accept unsolicited grant proposals.
