Child Aid is recognized as a non-profit organization by the Guatemalan government and is recognized as an 501(c)(3) non-profit organization by the U.S. Treasury.
Child Aid is an efficient, cost-effective organization and has been recognized as a Charity Navigator four-star charity five years in a row. We focus our work where our impact can make a significant and lasting difference in children’s lives. We consider our supporters as direct partners who help us build brighter futures for children in Latin America.
In 2014, over 92 percent of donor contributions went directly to Child Aid programs—that is, toward helping children gain fundamental literacy skills and educational opportunity.
We undergo independent financial audits every year, and we make these reports available online, along with our tax returns. Furthermore, we invite donors to personally visit our program in Guatemala. We want as many supporters as possible to meet our staff and witness the impact of their contributions firsthand.
