Meet the Fundraising Staff February 12, 2021
Every time you read a Childcare Worldwide blog, order from a gift catalog, or open a letter that shares the impact your gifts have on the lives of children in need, you have interacted with our amazing Fundraising Team. This highly motivated trio is dedicated to finding the greatest needs of our children around the world and connecting those needs with caring people like you. And the best part?

Here we are into November already, and I cannot believe how quickly this year has flown by. Fall is my favorite season.
