Why does Compassion need donations?

To improve our effectiveness in serving children of poverty, Compassion has committed to improving our technological capabilities. Your software donations will help us achieve the highest level of administrative automation in our headquarters office, eight partner country offices and 23 field country offices. With efficiently automated processes and procedures, we will be able both to expand the number of children we reach and improve our program services to children and sponsors.

How will my donation help sponsored children?

Compassion's ministry is all about the "heart connection" between the sponsor and sponsored child. With state-of-the-art technology, we will be able to facilitate more quickly and efficiently information-sharing between sponsors and children.

Another advantage of having updated technology is that the time between registering children into the program and securing sponsors for them will be greatly reduced. Updated technology will help us reach our ultimate goal of registering a child one day and presenting him or her for sponsorship the next.

I work for a different software company. Can I make a donation from my company?

Many companies have contribution matching programs. Some match contributions with cash, others match contributions with goods such as software. Check with your company to see if it has a contributions matching program. Then feel free to contact us. We will be glad to discuss with you the possibilities of participating in your company's program and expanding the difference your Compassion contributions make for the world's children in need.
