ICATCH offers $6000 grants to healthcare providers in low-income and low-middle-countries for projects that improve child health in their communities. We’ve given 98 grants since 2007, and in celebration of our upcoming 100th grant, we hope to raise the award to $9000—recognizing our track record of success, the loss of purchasing power over time, and the enormous abilities and dedication of our grantees.
We cannot do this without help from donors like you. There are many ways to give.
You can make one-time or monthly donations.
Donate by mail
You can donate by mail by making a check out to “AAP Friends of Children—ICATCH” and writing “ICATCH” in the memo line. Mail your check to AAP Development, PO Box 776437, Chicago, IL 60677-6437.
