Message from Donald H. Whitney, Founder

To friends, family and supporters of the World Children’s Center:

Fourteen years after acquiring and developing 720 acres in West Georgia, the World Children’s Center (WCC) has officially decided to initiate The World Children’s Foundation (WCF), to begin serving children in great need much sooner.

"While I have always desired to positively impact the lives of thousands of suffering children, one at a time, on this breathtaking sustainable campus, in the end, there just hasn’t been enough financial support to move this to the next level," says founder and president Don Whitney.

The WCC website will stay in place in 2019. The upcoming World Children’s Foundation website will lay out the role of the WCF, which is to partner with well-established, measurable and successful existing organizations whose missions are aligned to the original purpose of the World Children’s Center.

"For those that have faithfully supported our WCC work over the years, THANK YOU from the bottom of my heart."


WCC - Donate

Donors making a contribution of $50 or more to support the construction of our student homes will be recognized on a commemorative plaque to be located at the World Children's Center.

WCC Academy

The World Children's Center mission is to build programs that foster education, provide housing and shelter, as well as ensure the safety of underserved children. The World Children's Center believes that every child should have the opportunity to grow in a safe, stable environment, have equal access to education and quality health care, and experience meaningful and productive work throughout his or her life.

When completely built, the World Children's Center Academy will educate, provide housing and enrichment/character-building programs, as well food and clothing to an estimated 800 children.

Proud to be green

The Vision

The idea for the World Children’s Center comes from Atlanta businessman Donald H. Whitney, President and Chief Executive Officer of Corporate Sports Unlimited (CSU), Corporate Events and Meetings and Founder and President of The United States 10K Classic. For most of his life, Don has had a passion for serving others and has dreamed about a safe haven where needy children can live in peace, free from both hunger and want.
