Donations can be made by pre-authorized withdrawal (bank account or credit card), internet banking, telephone banking, Interac online, cheque or money order. These withdrawals can be made monthly or annually. Pre-authorized donations are safe, easy and convenient. Pre-authorized withdrawal from your bank account is our preferred method of payment, as it saves Compassion hundreds of thousands of dollars each year in transaction fees. Automatic withdrawals can be setup through our website by completing the Update Your Information form or by calling our office. Cheques made out to Compassion Canada will be accepted, as will money orders. Unfortunately deposits can not be made directly into Compassion’s bank account.

If I don’t sign up for Sponsorship Plus, will my sponsored child receive fewer sponsorship benefits?
Absolutely not! Each Compassion assisted child receives the same benefits from the Compassion program. Because Compassion does not use sponsorship money to fund further development initiatives for the families and communities of sponsored children, Sponsorship Plus funds are pooled and used towards funding some of these types of initiatives and activities.View Original Post
Although Compassion cannot guarantee that funds from Sponsorship Plus will directly benefit the child you sponsor, there are increasing development activities and initiatives funded by Compassion throughout all the countries where we work. As more funds are received for Sponsorship Plus, Compassion Canada will be able to commit to funding even more development activities in the future.View Original Post
