Kids deserve healthy schools.

Schools that teach them to make healthy choices in their daily lives, and provide support and encouragement every step of the way. Simply put, a healthy child has fewer absences, learns better, and is less likely to develop weight-related diseases later in life.


CATCH Global Foundation is a non-profit organization
whose mission is to provide underserved schools and communities the resources necessary to create and sustain healthy change for future generations. The school-based CATCH program is the most cost-effective program proven to prevent childhood obesity(1) – $10 provides CATCH for another low-income kid for an entire year and $5,000 sets up a whole new school. CATCH is also used by some of the largest districts around the country including, Dallas Independent School District and Chicago Public Schools. See some CATCH Promise districts spotlighted here

We need your help to help us bring these life-changing health programs to students across the country. By making a donation - 100% of which will go directly to mission funding - you are creating a healthier future for thousands of children in communities with wide health disparities across the country.

Spotlight

A portion of the donations provided will bring CATCH school health programming to more New York City Title 1 Public Schools, some of the most historically underserved schools in the nation.

Everyone is involved from district administration, to teachers, food service staff, and parents. The biggest impact is made when we all work together – and you can help!
