What is a state or local campaign?
If you are an employee of state or local government, you may be able to donate to Compassion through a campaign at your workplace. Through campaigns offered by employers such as school districts, law enforcement agencies and state sanitation departments, many employees have the choice to give through payroll deductions.
How can I participate in this life-changing campaign?
Compassion participates in the state and local campaigns through Global Impact, an organization that represents charities in workplace fundraising drives. During your event, you will be given a pledge card on which you can designate Compassion as the recipient of your generous donation.
How will my gifts make a difference?
Your gifts each month will go to Where Most Needed, which offers hope to children who live in extreme poverty around the world. This vital program covers critical needs beyond what Compassion’s Child Sponsorship Program can cover, such as safe water, disaster relief and lifesaving surgeries.
Can my gifts be used to sponsor a child?
Since Compassion is not in control of when these contributions are received, it is not possible to allocate them for sponsorship. Instead, your gift will go to Where Most Needed. But please know that you are always welcome to sponsor a child on your own!
