Save the Children was originally founded in England in 1919. The U.S. headquarters was founded in 1932 in Connecticut. Save the Children uses a child sponsorship model, where donors' sponsored contributions are pooled with those of other donors sponsoring children in the community. These donations are used to fight poverty, provide better options for early childhood and primary education, and supply medical supplies and care to the community as a whole. Sponsors are able to communicate with their sponsored children if they desire.

The Patient Access Network (PAN) Foundation is an independent, national 501(c)(3) organization dedicated to helping federally and commercially insured people living with life-threatening, chronic, and rare diseases with the out-of-pocket costs for their prescribed medications. Since its founding in 2004, PAN has provided nearly 1 million underinsured patients with over $3 billion in financial assistance to help pay for deductibles, co-pays and coinsurance, travel expenses, and health insurance premiums. The organization operates over 60 disease-specific programs.

The majority of individuals helped by the PAN Foundation are Medicare beneficiaries. Medicare beneficiaries, by law, are unable to receive financial assistance for their out-of-pocket costs directly from pharmaceutical manufacturers. Charitable foundations like PAN are the only organizations to which Medicare beneficiaries can turn for assistance.

The PAN Foundation is headquartered in Washington, D.C.

Campus Crusade for Christ changed its name to Cru in 2011, among great controversy. Some groups feel as though the organization is straying away from Biblical beliefs and teachings in its ministry to high school and college students, in the mission field, and to professional businesspeople around the world. Contributions are used to support Cru's ministry.
