What do I do with the sign-up forms and payments?

Place the completed forms and payments in the envelope with the pre-paid FedEx Ground label (enclosed with your event materials). Complete the address label and drop off the envelope at any FedEx Ground location immediately after your event. Or, visit fedex.com to arrange a pick-up.

What do I do with leftover CSP packets?

Please do not send them back. The cost of postage to return them is more than it is to reprint new packets. Also, packets get tattered when they go through the mail more than once.

What should I do with the display materials after the event?

Please do not send it back. Keep it for future use or discard.

If someone pays by credit or debit card but does not choose to have monthly recurring payments, what will prompt their payments?

They will receive a monthly statement from Compassion.

Where is the CSP packet due date, any why is it important?

The due date for the form is located on the top line of the form. Be aware and do not circulate CSP packets after that date. A potential donor can always call (800) 336-7676 to make the first payment before the form expires and bypass the mail-back protocol.
