How can I participate in this life-changing campaign?
Compassion participates in this campaign through Global Impact. When the campaign kicks off at your workplace, you will be given a pledge card. To give to Compassion, simply write our CFC number (10522) in the space provided.
How will my gifts make a difference?
Your gifts each month will go toward meeting the most urgent needs of Compassion- assisted children, such as nutritional services, medical assistance, safe water and disaster relief. This vital program covers critical needs beyond what Compassion’s Child Sponsorship Program can cover and offers hope to children who face a daily struggle just to survive.
Can my gifts be used to sponsor a child?
Since Compassion is not in control of when contributions are received through Global Impact, it is not possible to allocate them for sponsorship. Instead, your gift will go toward meeting the most urgent needs of Compassion-assisted children, but please know that you are always welcome to sponsor a child on your own!
Pamela is one of the beneficiaries supported through your CFC contributions. Your giving to Compassion’s most urgent needs have had a profound impact on Pamela’s life and continue to change the lives of children around the world.
At the age of 8 years old, Pamela began to lose her speech and the ability to walk. By the time she was 9 years old, her condition had become even more serious and was diagnosed as a brain tumor which would lead to her death if left untreated. Pamela was enrolled in the Compassion program in Ghana and was able to receive the life-saving medical treatment she desperately needed. Today, at 10 years old, Pamela has regained her abilities to walk, talk, and play because of your support of the Compassion “Where Most Needed Fund”.
Pamela is now thriving and is enrolled in her local school. Her family is extremely encouraged that she was able to receive the medical treatment she needed: Thank you for helping to impact her life!
Thank you for considering giving to Compassion through the Combined Federal Campaign. The heartfelt contributions from people like you are making an incredible difference in the lives of children around the world.
