Matching Your Gift
Makes a World of Difference

Double the impact of your gift through your company’s matching gift program! Your matching gift may be designated to support urgent and critical needs Compassion’s children face that sponsorship donations alone can’t cover – needs like disaster relief, lack of clean water or extra medical bills. Matching gifts with no designation will be invested in our Where Most Needed Fund.

Matching Gifts at Work: Disaster Relief

FACT: Half of the world's 51 million currently displaced people are children, and in developing countries, children often bear the brunt of natural and man-caused emergencies.

Amid earthquakes, hurricanes, flooding, wars and conflicts, Compassion’s Disaster Relief funds are put to immediate use in supplying emergency food and water, building temporary shelters, sending medical supplies and organizing medical treatment with local doctors.

Our Disaster Relief Efforts Saved Children After Super Typhoon Haiyan.

The Philippines are accustomed to strong storms, with an average of 10 typhoons hitting land each year. Super Typhoon Haiyan, however, would be anything but average.

In the blink of a storm, more than 4,000 families of sponsored children were left without homes and without food. Compassion workers focused on relief first – immediate needs such as food and water. In the following months, we focused on restoring lives with counseling, medical aid and income-generating assistance for families. Because of the disaster relief funding, we were able to help over 6,500 in the months following Typhoon Haiyan.
