SOS Childrens Villages USA




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.

Tax Savings (read below)

The Giving Block only equips registered charities to accept crypto donations. Because crypto is classified as property by the IRS (and many other tax agencies globally), in addition to a write off, you do not have to pay capital gains tax on donated crypto. Consult a tax professional to confirm specifics. Or contact us to be put in touch with one.

To receive a tax receipt, you must enter your email at the end of the widget. Your email can be de-identified, and you do not need to disclose any personal information on the second page of the widget. Unless you want to stay in touch!

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
