About War Child USA

About Us

War Child USA

War Child USA Inc. is an independent New York not-for-profit corporation exempt from federal income tax under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code. Registered in 2001, War Child USA is affiliated with and provides financial support to the similarly named charitable organization in Canada, War Child Canada. Though independent entities, each organization is devoted to protecting children and their families in conflict zones and raising awareness about the impact of war on global communities. 

While War Child USA regularly provides financial support to War Child Canada in the form of grants, please note that donations to War Child USA may not be earmarked for use by War Child Canada, or any other organization. Further, U.S. taxpayers may only deduct contributions to the U.S. organization for U.S. income tax purposes. If you have any questions regarding your donation, please contact us at
