Christian Charities

How is Compassion different from other Christian charities?

Many Christian charities around the world are making a difference. What makes Compassion different from other Christian charities? We don't just focus on temporary results. As we release children from poverty, we strive to help them become fulfilled Christian adults. We do this by addressing all aspects of child development: spiritual, economic, social and physical.

If you're looking for Christian charities to get involved with, please check out Compassion! We help children in need from the earliest stages of life through young adulthood. We do this through three vital programs: Compassion's Child Survival Program, which rescues infants and toddlers in need; our Child Sponsorship Program, which provides lifesaving assistance to school-age children; and our Leadership Development Program, which helps young adults attend college and receive Christian training.

Praise God that Compassion, which is one of the largest Christian charities in existence, is helping more than 1 million children in need in 24 countries!   

How can I partner with Christian charities and help save lives? 
Sponsoring a child is one of the easiest ways to support Christian charities. Compassion's children's ministry is ready to match you with a child in need for just $38 a month. You can offer your child the basic necessities of life, as well as the hope of Jesus Christ!

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

Your support provides:

  • Food and clean water
  • Medical care
  • Educational opportunities
  • Important life-skills training
  • 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 15 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 will profoundly change the future for your child, and will change your own life as well.
