Your gifts to Compassion, through the Combined Federal Campaign, help save and transform lives! Here’s how...

- 16,737 "Water of Life" systems were distributed to families in need of safe water.
- Life-saving antiretroviral medications were distributed to 95,999 Compassion children and/or their caregivers who are HIV-positive.
- Compassion assisted more than 69,828 children who were homeless, abandoned, or whose parents/caregivers were unable to care for them.
- More than $16.9 million was spent on behalf of children who were in urgent need of medical treatments such as surgeries, vision exams, glasses, and dental work.
How can I participate in this life-changing campaign?
Compassion participates in this campaign through Christian Service Charities, an organization that represents Christian charities in workplace fundraising drives.
When the campaign kicks off at your workplace, you will be given a pledge card. To give to Compassion, simply write our CFC number (10522) in the space provided.
How will my gifts make a difference?
Your gifts each month will go toward meeting the most urgent needs of Compassion- assisted children, such as nutritional services, medical assistance, safe water and disaster relief. This vital program covers critical needs beyond what Compassion’s Child Sponsorship Program can cover and offers hope to children who face a daily struggle just to survive.
Can my gifts be used to sponsor a child?
Since Compassion is not in control of when contributions are received through Christian Service Charities, it is not possible to allocate them for sponsorship. Instead, your gift will go toward meeting the most urgent needs of Compassion-assisted children, but please know that you are always welcome to sponsor a child on your own!
Jeremy is just one of the beneficiaries of the fund that your CFC contributions support. Your contribution to Compassion’s most urgent needs has impacted Jeremy's life and is changing the lives of so many children just like Jeremy around the world.
Jeremy from Las Delicias, Colombia, was treated for chronic seborrheic dermatitis as a newborn, which led to his leg bones malforming. His parents noticed his knees buckling when Jeremy was three. His doctor said that at Jeremy’s young age, the bone treatment could cause the malformation to worsen and to wait at least two years to begin treatment. Jeremy was registered at the Compassion center, and when he was old enough, they provided help to start his treatment.
Because of partners like you, Jeremy doesn’t just walk without falling, he runs and plays soccer with other children. Through their experience, Jeremy’s family has developed a strong faith that inspires others. Thank you for helping to change lives!
Thank you for considering giving to Compassion through the Combined Federal Campaign. The heartfelt contributions from people like you are making an incredible difference in the lives of children around the world.
