Make Change for Children Campaign

With a lot of passion and some planning, you can help raise awareness and funds to benefit the millions of children living without loving, permanent families. One hundred percent of the funds raised through this year’s Make Change for Children will support Joint Council’s advocacy and education programs, as well as on-the-ground projects in areas such as nutrition, foster care and adoption, orphan care, and women’s empowerment.

Last year 300 people donated to the Make Change for Children Campaign, which raised more than $110,000. This year we want to double the number of donors! We need your help. There are plenty of ways to become a Change Maker. 
  1. Become part of Joint Council's Change Makers Team. Visit MakeChangeforChildren.org and click on "Register Here" on the left side of the website. After signing the waiver, click the button next to "Join a Team". Select Joint Council from the dropdown box.   
  2. Start your own Team of Change Makers. Now is the perfect time to reach out to your school, place of worship and community to get them involved in supporting Make Change for Children. Sign up at  MakeChangeforChildren.org and invite your family, schoolmates, friends or colleagues to Make Change for Children. Click on "Register Here" on the left side of the website. After signing the waiver, click the button next to "Start a Team"
  3. Start planning a party! If you're throwing a birthday, Halloween, or any sort of party this fall, give it a special purpose by turning it into a Make Change for Children event. Check out our resources page for information.  Email us at info@jointcouncil.org to let us know what you are planning.  We're here to help!
  4. Pre-Order a Make Change for Children collection kit for your trick-or-treater or for your desk at work. Give your child the opportunity to learn what it means to help children in need.  Email the number of kits you'll need and your address to info@jointcouncil.org.
Help us meet the goal of doubling the number of donors. Our website  has lots of downloadable resources to help you become a Change Maker. If you have trouble registering or if you have questions/ideas, please contact our Make Change for Children Campaign Director, Elizabeth Muniot by email at elizabeth.m@jointcouncil.org or call her at 703.981.2874.
 Once again, thank you for your continued support.
