Model of Christian Charity

A model of Christian charity offers financial transparency

As a model of Christian charity, Compassion understands the important responsibility in our hands. When you sponsor a child, you can be assured your donation will benefit your child spiritually, emotionally, socially and physically. At Compassion, we feel a model of Christian charity should offer donors more than excellent program delivery. Financial transparency plays an important role as well.

Compassion works with a number of organizations dedicated to ensuring financial accountability. To assist in our efforts to be a model of Christian charity, Charity Navigator, the largest independent evaluator of charities in the country, has awarded Compassion its highest ranking for nine years in a row. This review organization also ranks Compassion in the top 1 percent of charities.

Compassion is an accredited charity with the Better Business Bureau and a founding member of the Evangelical Council for Financial Accountability. We do not take this recognition for being a model of Christian charity lightly.

We want you to contribute with confidence as you touch lives worldwide. And while we strive to maintain and continually improve our standing as a model of Christian charity, our primary focus is the children. Your child sponsorship support offers hope and help to children in some of the world's most impoverished countries. We offer children:

  • nutritional support
  • medical care
  • educational opportunities
  • Christian training

Make a difference in the life of a child in need. Sponsor a child today!
