Can you imagine children being forced to work? And not being able to go to school? At CRY we have decided to end child labor, and make sure that children go to school. This will require a continuous effort to make possible.

We request you to join a distinguished group of donors who help kids on a continuing basis. It’s effective & less costly to support CRY in this way and it means the money will always be there to ensure children continue in school and enjoy a happy childhood.

Your support as a Monthly Donor is valuable for these children who so desperately need your help. Monthly gifts are more efficient & save money, so more of the money you contribute will go to help the kids.

You will always be in control of your support. If your financial situation changes, or you later decide you want to change the amount or are giving too much, you can just cancel or reduce your support by sending an email to support@cryamerica.org

By submitting this form, you will be authorizing bank to bank transfers for a specified amount on the 15th day of each month. To join our Monthly Donation – Bank Transfer option, please fill, sign & submit the Bank Transfer Authorization Form.

With a few simple steps, your Company can match every dollar you give to CRY America, allowing every donation you make to be twice as powerful for children.

Check if CRY America is already registered with your Company on your Company’s website. The process for submitting Matching Gift requests varies from Company to Company. Some require donations to be verified. Employee Giving/ Payroll Giving donations are directly matched by the Company and are not received by CRY America for verifications.

What Our Donors Have To Say

Yogita Manghnani, Seattle Volunteer: Child marriage takes away a girl’s right to a happy childhood. It forces her to give up her education & family to take on the role of a wife at a very young age. The girl child may not be ready to handle pregnancies, leading to complications for both the mom and baby. She deserves to enjoy her childhood, play and go to school just like a male child; contribute to the family and society at her own terms; choose to marry when she is physically and emotionally ready to build her own family.

Yogita Maghnani
CRY America Volunteer

I got the inspiration to join CRY from my Dad. His deeds inspired me to give back to the society which led me to volunteer with CRY America, that has made a great impact by providing the basic needs to underprivileged children. I am privileged to be associated with CRY and to help raise funds for its noble cause gives me a great sense of achievement. It is the smiles on the faces of these children that keeps me going and inspires me to continue serving them through CRY.

Kinnery Mehta
CRY America Volunteer

“Children should have a busy life – playing with friends, eating healthy food, studying, growing themselves creatively and intellectually and showered with love. Instead, when children are asked to earn a living for themselves and their families, they’re robbed of their basic human rights. We feel that for the cost of a birthday party a year, you could change the future of a child. Then why not?”

Jigar Thakkar & Sangeeta Mudnal
CRY America Donor

“CRY is a one of a kind NGO that embraces a holistic approach providing health, education, and nutrition to ensure a safer and better future for children in India. We are touched by the breadth and level of commitment of its volunteers, donors and partners. It is an honor to serve with CRY in our own little way.”

Harsh & Rupal Patil
CRY America Donors

“Educating a child has a profound ripple effect. Not only will it improve a child’s life but that of its family, community and country leading to the overall enrichment of mankind.”

Anita Agarwal
CRY America Donor

“What makes CRY America special is the drive and the genuineness of the volunteer team, year after year.  By adopting projects themselves, some of these volunteers have put their money where their mouth is.  Thank you CRY America for making giving so easy and impactful.”

Usha Rao
CRY America Donor
