I've been sponsoring a child as a business account for about 6 months now, but I'd like to change it to a personal account. My sponsor number is 07772373. I'm my only employee anyways, and I feel like it would be so much more personal if my account name were my actual name instead of my business name. I hope this is possible.

I love getting and receiving letters so much. Thank you, Compassion, for all that you do for the Lord's kingdom!

Hi Caroline! I appreciate your desire to make your sponsorship a little more personal and I am happy to help with that. I am not sure if you had chosen to give under your business name for tax purposes or some other reason. We do have the option of running the correspondence portion through a separate account. This would mean that all the letters would be addressed to your personal name and you would write to him through that account. Then all the receipts and donations would be sent through your business account. Is that something that you are interested in doing or would you like to completely change the sponsorship to your name? Also, may I please have your last name for the personal account? Would all of the contact information be the same as on your business account? Feel free to email us at socialmedia@compassion.com with any personal contact information that you would like on this new account and we are happy to get this setup for you.

I think I’ll just change the sponsorship completely to my name. Last name is Lebakken, and all contact information and billing information will be the same. Thank you so, so much!

Hi Caroline! I've set up your new account in your personal name. I will send you an email with your new sponsor number so that you can create an online account :).
