Start Sponsoring a Child Today!

Your tax-deductible contribution of just $43 a month connects a child living in poverty with a loving, church-driven 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.

Compassion in Action

Many people have compassionate hearts, but putting that compassion in action takes things to a whole new level. Compassion International, one of the world’s leading charitable organizations, offers people all over the world the opportunity to put their compassion in action through sponsorship.

Sponsoring a child through Compassion gives you the opportunity to form a personal relationship with a child in poverty. This relationship will be life-changing for your child and maybe even for you. When you sponsor a child, you put your compassion in action in a way that will impact you and your child forever.

If you already sponsor a child, one of the best ways to see Compassion in action is to go on a sponsor tour. On a sponsor tour, you will meet your child and visit a child development center. In between ministry activities with the children, you will learn more about how Compassion’s ministry works to make a lasting difference in the life of every Compassion child.

Even if you cannot go on a sponsor tour, you can still see Compassion in action. On our web site, sponsors share their sponsor tour experiences through blogs, video and photo slide shows. You can see a vivid portrait of poverty and Compassion in action by reading one of the many sponsor tour blogs.

Once you see Compassion in action — whether it be virtual or first-hand — you’ll be inspired by the personal stories you encounter. You will undoubtedly want to share your love, prayers and support with a child in need by sponsoring a child today.
