American Girl has a long-standing commitment to helping children and families in need. To date, we've donated more than $140 million in dolls, books, clothes, and cash to countless charities nationwide. The company administers its philanthropic efforts in several ways, including partnerships with the following national organizations:

Save the Children

Save the Children works across the nation in underserved rural areas, where one in four children lives in poverty. Partnering with local schools and community organizations, Save the Children's US Programs provide early education, literacy, and physical-activity and nutrition programs to children living in poverty. Save the Children also ensures the needs of children are met during disasters through their emergency-response work. Save the Children's efforts benefited more than 240,000 children in 18 states last year. American Girl supports Save the Children's literacy program each year with a significant book donation. To date, we’ve provided more than $9 million in books and funds to help the organization develop students' reading skills and provide them with the guidance and support they need to grow as readers.

Delivering Good

Delivering Good (formerly Kids in Distressed Situations) has helped nearly 70 million needy children by providing more than $1 billion in new clothes, toys, books, and much more. Since 1990, American Girl has donated more than $16 million in new clothes, books, and toys to Delivering Good. Because something brand new brings hope and confidence to children and their families, Delivering Good works with nearly 1,000 local service agencies in the US and around the world to distribute new items to kids and families in need.

Children’s Hospital Association

The Children's Hospital Association promotes the health and well-being of America's 70 million children and their families. The Association works with more than 200 children's medical centers to ensure that all children have access to a hospital when they need one and are provided high-quality care and services. Since 2010, we’ve donated more than $7 million worth of dolls to help bring smiles and comfort to thousands of young girls who are in the hospital.

To ensure that all children have the opportunity to play, the Mattel Children's Foundation continues to donate toys–including American Girl dolls, books, and clothing–to numerous nonprofits serving children and families in need throughout the year.
