Children Are The Future

Children and young adults are one of the most vulnerable groups of people when put in hostile situations such as poverty, hunger, homelessness, physical or emotional abuse, sexual violence, etc. They have the least power to change their circumstances and most desperately require the help of their communities to provide them with the safety and security they need. The health and well-being of every child is paramount to the future development of our society.

Giving underprivileged kids the help they need and fulfilling their basic needs is one of Charitocracy’s missions. Each month, Charitocracy and our amazing donors hand select children's charities that are devoted to provide children in need with food security, clean water, a home, education, health, safety, and more. By the end of the month, through voting we select one charity out of all the nominated charities from all 12 categories to which we donate our monthly pooled donations. Chances are, the charities you nominate or vote for will win Charitocracy's monthly grant!

Take a look at the list below of kids' charities that have won our monthly pot in the past. Then check out the current kids' charity nominees (or all nominees) for this month's voting. Are we missing one you'd like to win? Join us and nominate your favorite kids' charity to add to our voting list!
