Donate to Charity

Among U.S. charitable organizations, Compassion International is one of the best charities around. It is a leading Christian charity and a top-rated child sponsorship charity by donors. Compassion consistently receives high ratings for integrity and financial accountability from third-party watchdog organizations, such as Charity Watch.

Beyond its Child Sponsorship Program, Compassion helps children in many ways. It has specific initiatives to help babies and mothers, develop future leaders, address food security needs and meet other critical needs.

Critical needs include opportunities to provide medical assistance (e.g., surgeries, transplants, casts, wheelchairs and canes, cancer treatment, etc.), extra food and nutritional supplements, income-generation training, emergency home repairs and disaster relief, access to clean and safe water, education assistance, and other necessities.

When you make a charitable donation to one of Compassion's Complementary Interventions, you help make sure children in poverty receive the critical help they need. Your tax-deductible donation is used to meet needs that otherwise may not be met. Your donation to this top children’s charity gives a child the chance to escape poverty.

Whether you donate to disaster relief and stability, income generation, infrastructure development, or other critical intervention programs, your donation will be used to radically change the life of a child in poverty for good.

You can choose to make a one-time credit card online donation or make a reoccurring monthly contribution to meet ongoing needs.

When you donate to Compassion, you donate to a charity that commits itself to the highest standards of financial integrity and financial accountability. Charitable donations will only be used for the purpose for which they were given.

Compassion regularly perform program audits to ensure its programs are well managed and funds are properly disbursed and applied according to clear and established guidelines, and Compassion commits to balance low administrative and fundraising costs with high-quality programs.
