I have started a company with a vision, to put back to humanity, in the form of donations for its international transactions, a little contribution by promoting high class art, committed athletics, and perfected luxury goods in the form of fashion goods, made entirely from recycled environmentally friendly.

Can any of charitable authorities accept our contribution to their cause, in the form of around 10% of our company’s earnings, on a regular basis?

I would love to know?

1-      conditions to accept donations and contributions.

2-      The method by which to receive such donations.

Hi Camille! Sounds like an amazing idea! I would like to help you, but I am a little unsure what you are asking. Could you help me have a better understanding please? Are you asking how to donate to Compassion or are you asking for advice on how to run your non-profit. I appreciate it.

Thank you for your reply Leah. I would like to know the conditions for Compassion to accept the contribution from a commercial company. The project I am working on will generate profit, and a percentage from this profit will be dedicated to Compassion. Will it be possible to mention the contribution in the company communication? Thank you again for your reply and help. I can send you a full presentation of my project to your Email for better understanding.

I'm not staff but I know that many commercial companies donate to Compassion since, as a correspondent, a lot of my sponsored kids are sponsored by businesses that can't write to the kids they sponsor (so as a volunteer I do that for them).  If you didn't want to sponsor kids with the donation there are other funds too.  You'll be able to pick and Compassion can help with that when they answer :)

Hi Camille! Thank you so much for your desire to bless children through your company! As Teresa mentioned, we do have many companies who donate and/or sponsor children :). We would simply need to create an account for you and then have a clear designation for the funds you would like to donate. Would you like to make this a long term donation through sponsoring children, or would you like to make this a one time or recurring donation to a fund of your choosing? We encourage you to let your customer's know that a portion of your profit is donated to Compassion as long as you are specifically mentioning Compassion International in your communications. You are also welcome to utilize the child photos from our Child Sponsorship Gallery and Compassion logos we have available for you upon your agreement to our terms of use.
