Compassion experienced a revenue growth of nearly 9 percent in 2019. That marks 21 years of consecutive revenue growth for our ministry. We carefully govern our spending so that, to date, more than 1.9 million babies, children and young adults around the world can be released from poverty in Jesus’ name.

In 2019, your compassion helped us serve 2.1 million children registered into our program across 7,565 frontline church partners. 1.8 million of those children were linked with caring sponsors. Those sponsors exchanged 5.63 million letters containing messages of hope and encouragement with their sponsored children.
