Estate and Asset Giving - Compassion International

Estate and Asset Giving Transform Lives for Years to Come through Planned Giving

Give Hope and Health to Children Around the World


When you give to Compassion, you’re securing a brighter future for children trapped by their circumstances. As a legacy donor, you’ll have the confidence of knowing you’re caring for their physical and emotional needs, now and in the future. Best of all, you’ll offer them the hope that’s found only through the saving grace of Jesus Christ.

"I want what I’ve been doing [for the children] to carry on when I’m not here to do it. There will still be children in need when I’m gone." — Jean Grant, Legacy Donor
