The Gift that Keeps on Giving…


As we reach the end of another year here at the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children, we want to take a moment to express our deep gratitude for everyone who supported our mission in 2022. 

Here at NCMEC, we lead the fight to protect children, creating vital services for them and the people who work each day to keep them safe. For more than 38 years, we’ve been at the forefront of the search for missing children and the fight to keep our children safe from sexual exploitation. 2022 was no exception.

We have certainly come a long way since our inception, but as always, the fight for child safety continues. Why?

Because every child deserves a safe childhood.

Making the world a safer place for children is our backbone and the inspiration for everything we do. But at the end of the day, we couldn’t do it without YOU.

So, as you begin to put away your holiday decorations and start the countdown to a brand-new year, you may ask yourself how you can get involved in the fight for child safety. As this year comes to a close, one of the easiest ways to make a difference is to consider making a tax-deductible end-of-year gift to NCMEC. 

Worried your donation won’t matter? Trust us, it does! Whether you donate $5 or $100, your donation will have an impact on the work we do to protect kids around the world in 2023 and beyond. 

Ready to make an impact? Donate using our easy one-click submission form or consider the following ways you could go above and beyond in the fight for children all year long: 

  1. Become a partner in the fight to help children by creating your own unique page on our website to gather support from family and friends. 
  2. Amplify your donation by joining our Heroes’ Circle and selecting the monthly gift option at checkout to automatically become a member.
  3. Possibly double your impact by checking to see if your employer will match your donation. Use our donation form to see if your employer will match your gift!

Ensuring a safe childhood is not only our mission here at NCMEC; it's our guiding light. Since 1984, our national hotline has received more than 5 million calls; we’ve circulated billions of photos of missing children and we’ve assisted in the recovery of more than 380,000 missing kids.

Thank you for supporting NCMEC in all that we do. From all of us here, we’re wishing you a safe, happy and successful new year. 

Cheers to 2023!
