This rating was published 02/01/2021 and includes data from FY2019, the most recent 990 received at that time.

The International Children's Fund (ICF) has come to the aid of needy children worldwide since 1978. We have helped distribute life-saving food, clothing, and medicine across the African continent, India, and Pakistan. We have also supported the construction of orphanages, churches, schools and vocational training centers, drilled water wells to provide safe drinking water, and established agricultural projects. Practical, direct grassroots action is the main focus of ICF. We channel the Christian concern of Americans into street-level impact in African villages, where logistics often frustrate traditional relief efforts. The secret ingredient is a trustworthy network of local, native missionary partners, who personally shepherd gifts of food, clothing, medicine, equipment, and funds to the places children need them most.
