Though Compassion can’t help you actually sponsor a family, we can help you impact a family as you sponsor a child in need. Your commitment to sponsor a child helps a family and a community as you provide that child with the tools to rise from poverty and help others.


Please call us at 800-336-7676, Monday through Friday, 7 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. MT, to speak with a Compassion representative.

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.

Sponsor a Family

If you want to “sponsor” a family, consider the impact of sponsoring a child on both the family and community. When Compassion children experience success in their lives — no matter how big or small — they are excited to share with their loved ones. Sponsorship of one child touches the lives of many relatives, so while you can't sponsor a family, you can provide help to the family through the child.

When poverty is prevalent, bringing in funds for the household becomes a family affair. In impoverished countries, many children cannot go to school because they must work. Even though Compassion offers one-to-one child sponsorship, an educated child with greater earning potential can significantly affect household income. In a sense, then, when you sponsor a child, by extension you sponsor a family!

Help a child, help a community

Compassion’s unique approach to child development is to raise healthy, balanced children. Children who are balanced spiritually, emotionally, socially and physically can help their families and communities in extraordinary ways. Rather than sponsor a family, sponsor a child through an environment that is:

  • Christ centered, so every child has the opportunity to hear the gospel.
  • Child focused, so activities bring out the best in each child.
  • Church driven, as we partner with churches, parents and communities to teach, train and mentor children.

Sponsoring a child through Compassion is easy. You can develop a loving relationship with your child through letters and photographs. You can even visit your child. You will experience the gratification of knowing you’re not only touching the life of one child, but actually having an effect on a family and perhaps an entire community that desperately needs the skills and contributions of your Compassion child. Don’t wait — sponsor your child today!
