Why We are Different than Traditional Grantmaking Organizations


We employ a rigorous initial and follow-up investigation process. Every program has been investigated by one of the world’s leading security firms to ensure that they meet World of Children standards. Investigations include a criminal background check; an on-site visit; interviews with law enforcement, community leaders, and experts in the areas of impact; and a review of all financial data. All investigation reports can be made available to investors.


Extensive investigations are conducted for every Honoree to ensure they are above reproach and doing the best work. Investigations are carried out by one the world’s leading corporate security firms, and reports are available to any potential investor.

100% MODEL

Our generous Board of Governors covers our operating costs so that 100% of public donations go directly to funding high-impact programs around the world.


World of Children does the ground work for you, assuring proper use of funds with ongoing reports regarding Honoree performance. No other granting organization in the world that we are aware of can make these claims.
