Mission Statement

Our approach is better than short-term charity. In partnership with governments, NGOs and other relief organizations, we build effective support systems with lasting impacts for struggling families. These efforts enable access to education, healthcare services and employment opportunities that are essential to maintaining safe environments for children at risk. Our long-term services—which focus on making families self-reliant—include savings and loan associations, income-generating activities, child rearing classes, health education, emergency response and much more.

Why Donate Crypto Directly? Taxes!

There’s a reason high net worth individuals tend to donate property instead of cash. Donating cryptocurrency directly to a 501c3 nonprofit is more tax efficient and can save you money.

The IRS classifies cryptocurrency as property for tax purposes which means it is typically the most tax efficient way to support your favorite cause. When donating crypto, You receive a tax deduction for the fair market value of the crypto, and you avoid the capital gains tax you would have incurred if you had sold the crypto and then made a donation. That means you’re able to donate more, as well as deduct more on your tax return. The difference? Sometimes more than 30%.

If you provide an email, you will automatically receive a tax receipt after donating.

Across 136 countries and territories, we're taking every precaution to keep all children, young people and staff members safe from COVID-19.

The alarming spread of the COVID-19 virus has led SOS Children’s Villages to take steps to ensure the health and safety of the nearly 70,000 children and young people in our children’s villages and youth programs, as well as some 39,000 staff members around the globe.

SOS Children’s Villages operates in 136 countries and territories, provides global and regional guidance on the virus to our SOS member associations based on the advisories of the World Health Organization. Local staff also follow the recommendations of their national health authorities to define measures to best protect children and staff that fit within their local context.

As a precaution, children and staff in some high-risk countries are staying within the children’s village, and visits from people outside the village and other facilities are restricted. In all countries, staff have been urged to develop and put in place Emergency Preparedness Plans for their programs and facilities.

The 10 SOS Children's Villages in China have adopted stringent measures to protect children and staff from the coronavirus. Children in some of the villages are doing their own awareness-raising campaign by making their own newspapers with messages about the virus and how to protect oneself
