Start Sponsoring a Child Today!

Your tax-deductible contribution of just $38 a month connects a child living in poverty with a loving, church-based Child Sponsorship Program.

Your support provides:

  • Medical checkups, which often save lives
  • Nutritious food
  • Health and hygiene training
  • Educational assistance
  • Access to special services like surgeries and disaster relief
  • Mentoring to help children discover their incredible value as God’s children
  • Most important of all, your sponsored child will hear about Jesus Christ and be encouraged to develop a lifelong relationship with God. Just imagine how exciting it will be when one day you get to heaven and your sponsored child is there with you because you chose to sponsor him or her.

When you sponsor a child, you'll receive your child's photo, personal story and a child sponsorship packet by mail in approximately 10 days.

When children find out they've been sponsored, the joy they feel is indescribable. Just knowing that someone across the globe cares means more than you can imagine. Sponsoring a child in need will profoundly change the future for your child, and will change your own life as well.

Christian Ministries: How Compassion’s Children’s Ministry is Saving Lives

Get the facts about Christian ministries

How can I make a difference with Christian ministries?

Christian ministries seek to improve people’s lives. Compassion International, founded in 1952 by the Rev. Everett Swanson, is one of the leading Christian ministries devoted to releasing impoverished children from spiritual, economic, social and physical poverty. Today, we serve more than 900,000 children in need in 24 countries.

The distinctions from other Christian ministries mentioned above allow Compassion to offer children living in poverty the opportunity to become fulfilled Christian adults. Compassion is also committed to educating Christians on poverty to save even more lives.
