Hello John! As a Christ-centered charitable organization, we strive to be good stewards of the resources you entrust to us. Our financial accountability, reporting processes, and results around the globe are consistently commended. You are welcome to view all of our financials through our website: https://www.compassion.com/about/financial.htm. I'd also encourage you to check out Compassion's ratings through watchdog organizations like Charity Navigators and Charity Watch. Compassion also does regular audits on the church partners we work with who host the programs your children attend so that we can be sure the money is being used how it is supposed to. Throughout the years, Compassion has consistently averaged more than 80 percent of total expenditures being used for program activities, with less than 20 percent being used for fundraising and administration. We commit to you that this will never, ever drop below 80%. This is one of the highest percentages for an organization like ours.

Your monthly sponsorship helps provide your child with life-changing benefits that include: nutritious snacks or meals, educational opportunities, health and hygiene training, medical checkups, the caring embrace of a local church, and the message of God’s love through Jesus Christ.
