Question:) Do you know if we can send a gift to our Compassion Child's center? Or just to his family or him? We were curious to know if there was a way to do something to help his center? My son wants to do a fundraiser for something. We know about the water filter project and will probably do that but we just wanted to check about our child's actual center:) thanks!!

That's a great question! You are welcome to give a monetary gift to your sponsored child's project. You can give anywhere between $100 to $2,000 per year. You are also welcome to give a family gift ($25-$1,000 per year) or a general gift ($10-$100 twice per year) to your sponsored child. Whatever you choose, I know it will be a wonderful blessing!

What kind of things would the center do with a gift? Thanks for answering! We're just trying to make the best decision!

The project will use the funds to purchase things they need. It would really depend on the project, but it could be used for classroom supplies, building supplies, or maybe items to help teach a vocation.

How does one go about giving a project gift? Would it have to be done over the phone? Thanks!

At this time, Amy, you can call to give your gift over the phone, or you may send a check with instructions to Compassion's mailing address.

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled Can I send money to akshithas project?.

I was wondering if I could send money to Akshithas child development center, and if so, how? Also, would I get a picture of her and the kids there or how would that work? Thanks! :)

Hi Anna! Yes, you are more than welcome to give a gift to Akshithas' center! To give a gift, please send a check made out to Compassion International and write "Center Gift" and the center number (IN441) in the memo line or call 800-336-7676 and we would be happy to process this gift for you. If you send a gift, you will receive a thank you letter from Akshithas' center staff and a photo of what the center was able to do with your gift in approximately six months after the gift is given.
