Who we are

The Global Children Foundation was established in 1998 after the devastating economic crisis demolished South Korea.

The initial and fundamental goal of the GCF was to lend a helping hand to the children of South Korea who were starving  due to their families' financial dilemmas.

The foundation was launched by Korean-American mothers who, just as any nurturing mother would, believe that every child should be granted the opportunity and basic means to live a prosperous, self-sustaining life.

Once the founders of the GCF were able to raise and provide aid to help thousands of South Korean children out of poverty, they realized that South Korean children were not the only ones who needed help. There are millions of children around the world who need support, and the GCF's mission has shifted gears to focus on all international children so that their essential needs and hopes may be granted to live full, healthy lives.


GCF is a 501(c)(3) not-profit organization and your contribution is fully tax deductible.

Monthly dues are $10 or more and you can become a life time member by contributing $1,000 or more.
