How sponsorship works
As a sponsor, you are crucial to our mission to walk with the poor and marginalized of the world. Your tax-deductible contribution of $30 per month provides a child, youth or aging friend with:
- Essential benefits such as food, clothing, home repairs and health care.
- Educational needs such as supplies, uniforms, tuition and other school fees.
- Recreational activities and Christmas and birthday celebrations.
- Literacy training and livelihood programs for parents.
Sponsorship benefits vary according to the individual needs of sponsored members and their families, local resources and other considerations.
Letters and photos
When you sponsor a child, youth or aging friend, you'll receive a photo, family profile and a sponsorship packet with other helpful information by mail within seven to 10 business days. Read more
Sponsorship lasts as long as your friend is in the program, or as long as you choose to continue as a sponsor. Most of our sponsor relationships last many years and have a lifelong impact on both the sponsors and their sponsored friends. Read more
