Mission & Purpose

Home / About Us / Mission & Purpose

The Children’s Global Health Fund, Inc., incorporated in 2016 in New York, is a nonprofit charity organization authorized as a tax-exempt entity under the terms of section 501 (c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code.  Our mission is to save the lives of vulnerable children and families globally by raising funds for and providing support to organizations improving family health in developing countries.

 

The Children’s Global Health Fund’s current development efforts aim to ensure the long-term sustainability of Clínica de Familia La Romana, located in the eastern Dominican Republic. Founded in 1999, Clínica de Familia La Romana is a Dominican non-profit organization aimed at improving the health of the poorest and most vulnerable populations in the region by providing high quality health, education, and psycho-social support services. Clínica de Familia has become a national model for HIV, sexually transmitted infection and adolescent health care, in addition to providing comprehensive and holistic care to the broader community, serving approximately 12,000 clients annually. Through their unique, comprehensive approach, Clínica de Familia La Romana has informed new standards of health care and strengthened access to essential services, improving the quality of life of marginalized populations.   Donations and grants to the Children’s Global Health Fund go directly to Clínica de Familia (with a small administrative fee for the Fund) to support and expand their health programs and reach.

 

Based in New York City, the Children’s Global Health Fund engages in fundraising efforts nationwide, and provides a platform for US-based individuals, foundations and corporations to make tax-deductible financial or in-kind contributions to Clínica de Familia La Romana, as the first beneficiary of the Fund. The Fund also supports Clínica de Familia in cultivating sponsorships, partnerships, and service opportunities involving US-based global health programs and supporters. These collaborations produce tangible support for Clínica de Familia, while offering unique experiences, collaborative research opportunities, philanthropic exposure, and other benefits to the partners.
