The gifts featured in the Gifts of Compassion catalogue are tied to specific initiatives being funded through our Response programs. The cost of each gift reflects the cost of implementing each of these programs.

Yes, we can make this happen for you. We would need the contact information for the friend or family member so that we can give them the picture and profile of the child they are starting to sponsor. If the friend or family member was willing, we could still have the letters from the sponsored child come to you and you could continue to write to this child. Please contact our office by phone or by email so that we can make this change for you.

No less than eighty percent of your donation will be directed to Compassion’s Response programs. No more than 20 percent is used for fundraising initiatives and administration. Compassion assisted children and their families receive no cash. Benefits are always in the form of goods and services, carefully designed, delivered and purchased according to the children’s individual needs. Click here to view our latest financial statement.

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.

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.
