Children's Charity

Getting involved with a children's charity is a serious decision, one that should not be taken lightly. When you put your money or time behind a children's charity, you want to have confidence that it is not being wasted. An effective children's charity must operate on integrity and trust.

Compassion has received Charity Navigator's highest award for nine years in a row. Charity Navigator is the largest independent evaluator of charities in the country. The organization also ranked Compassion in the top one percent of all charities, making Compassion a premier children's charity worldwide.

Along with our financial recognition, Compassion also stands out as a children's charity with four distinctives that set us apart from our peers. We are Christ-centered, child focused, church based and committed to integrity - all things in which our sponsors know they can trust never to change.

Compassion is a trustworthy children's charity that is releasing children from poverty on a daily basis. Your tax-deductible donation will touch the lives of children worldwide and release them from poverty in Jesus' name. Won't you allow God to work through you today?

Start Sponsoring a Child Today!

Your tax-deductible contribution of just $38 a month connects a child living in poverty with a loving, church-based Child Sponsorship Program.

Your support provides:

  • Medical checkups, which often save lives
  • Nutritious food
  • Health and hygiene training
  • Educational assistance
  • Access to special services like surgeries and disaster relief
  • Mentoring to help children discover their incredible value as God’s children
  • Most important of all, your sponsored child will hear about Jesus Christ and be encouraged to develop a lifelong relationship with God.

When you sponsor a child, you'll receive your child's photo, personal story and a child sponsorship packet by mail in approximately 10 days.

When children find out they've been sponsored, the joy they feel is indescribable. Just knowing that someone across the globe cares means more than you can imagine. Sponsoring a child in need will profoundly change the future for your child, and will change your own life as well.
