Children's Charities - Compassion International

When selecting a children’s charity, it is important to investigate several aspects of the charity. It is more than simply understanding where your money goes. You should be passionate about the cause and see that the charity is solving a problem.

Consider the following questions:

  • How does the children’s charity rank in Charity Navigator? Is there financial accountability in the charity?
  • Has the children’s charity been effective in remedying a problem that children face?
  • What makes the charity unique from other children’s charities?
  • Are there results?

Compassion International is one of the world’s leading children’s charities and is unique among those organizations. Compassion’s ministry programs are frequently mentioned and highlighted by various media outlets, and watch dog organizations.

Compassion stands apart from other children’s charities, based on the following three distinctive elements:

  • Church Based – This children’s charity works exclusively in partnership with thousands of local churches. The leaders live in their communities and know how to best meet the needs of the children.
  • Child Focused – Compassion is focused on the individual child and his or her development.
  • Christ Centered – Jesus Christ is the heart of this children’s charity.

When you donate to Compassion International, you can be sure that your charitable donation will be used to help improve the quality of life for impoverished children around the world.

Compassion International is a Trustworthy Children's Charity

Before you invest money or time into a children's charity you should have confidence that neither will be wasted.

Compassion International, the world’s leading authority in holistic child development through sponsorship, offers the only child sponsorship program to be validated as effective through independent, empirical research.

On average, a child in our sponsorship program spends 4,000 hours in safe, nurturing programs, is at least 50 percent more likely to graduate college, is 14 to 18 percent more likely to have salaried employment and is 35 percent more likely to find white-collar employment as an adult.

As one of the world's leading children's charities, our commitment to integrity and financial stewardship is our hallmark. Our ministry programs are frequently mentioned and highlighted by various media outlets and watch dog organizations.

What Makes Us Unique Among Children's Charities?

Along with the consistent public recognition our financial stewardship and accountability receives, we stand apart from other children's charities and sponsorship organizations because of our "distinctives."

We are Christ centered, child focused and church based.
  • Jesus Christ is at the heart of our ministry. Our commitment to Christ drives the content of our programs, characterizes the kind of people we hire, and guides our ethics.
  • Our ministry is focused on the individual child and his or her development. We work holistically with individual children to address their spiritual, economic, social and physical needs.
  • We work exclusively in partnership with thousands of local churches in developing nations to deliver our holistic child development program. Our church partners are responsible for the day-to-day activities that affect children's lives — they essentially "own" the local Compassion child development center.
