Will You Help This Child?Mission Statement
The Russian Children's Welfare Society is dedicated to assisting disadvantaged Russian children improve their lives. Our organization was formed in 1926 to assist Russian children and families who emigrated to the West. While the Society maintains its tradition of assisting the children of Russian emigrants, we focus on programs that help children in Russia, supporting organizations that effectively enhance their health, education and social welfare.

General Information
The Russian Children's Welfare Society (RCWS) was established in New York City in 1926 to improve the lives of needy children of Russian descent around the world. The Society's work has traditionally provided grants to emigrant children in Europe, South America and the United States in need of direct material assistance. In the last 78 years, we have distributed approximately $10,000,000 in grants, helping over 40,000 children in their struggle against poverty.

Help NowSince the breakup of the Soviet Union in 1991, Russia has experienced a grave social crisis, placing millions of children at-risk. Given such great need, the Society now directs the majority of its yearly aid to programs in Russia. The Society continues to offer assistance to emigrant families, as necessary. Please see our grants list & statistics for further information.

Please Note:
The Russian Children's Welfare Society is not involved in adoption in any way. Nor does it fund adoption agencies or private adoptions.
