Can I send my sponsored child a Gift of Compassion?

Last Updated: March 19, 2013 10:49 am

Gifts that you can send to your sponsored child are different from Gifts of Compassion.

While it is highly likely that your sponsored child will benefit from a Gifts of Compassion throughout their time in the sponsorship program, you cannot choose to provide a direct gift for your child in this way.

Compassion greatly encourages sponsors to provide monetary gifts to their sponsored child throughout the year online here or by calling our office at 1-800-563-5437.

Gifts for your sponsored child include child, family gift, or birthday gift. 100 per cent of these monetary gifts reach your sponsored child and family. Appropriate gifts are purchased in your child’s country by child development centre staff in consultation with the child and family. Where possible, gifts are bought within the community helping to support the local economy.
