Smile Train’s Premier Circle recognizes donors who have taken a leadership position in the fight against cleft.

Premier Circle

Smile Train’s ability to provide 100%-free cleft repair surgery for children in the developing world is largely due to the support of our Premier Circle members. Each member has created smiles for at least four children and has given them the opportunity to live full and productive lives.

In addition to the satisfaction of knowing that they’ve helped the world’s most vulnerable children, Premier Circle members also receive the following benefits:

  • Personal updates about Smile Train’s programs
  • VIP invitations to special events and presentations
  • Special communications like videos and photos from the field
  • Opportunities to travel to our partner hospitals around the world
  • Priority access to CEO Susannah Schaefer’s personal email

You can become a Premier Circle member today by making a tax-deductible gift of $1,000 or more. Please call for more information about Smile Train’s Premier Circle.



Help us deliver lifesaving, comprehensive cleft care and minimize expenses.


"You think you understand Smile Train as a charity and all their outstanding accomplishments. But until you meet the kids and the surgeons face to face you don't truly understand the miracles that are taking place. Once you do, you know, without a shadow of a doubt, that you will be a donor and Smile Train ambassador for life."

Susan McGuire

Premier Circle Donor since June 2006

"To go through life without hope or help would be devastating for these kids. I have no children of my own, so it's a way for me to help."
