Hi Shorel! You most certainly can use your donor-advised fund to sponsor a child. You will need to provide the following with your donation: Supporter number, Supporter name, Supporter address, and the fund designation. To sponsor a child, the fund designation will be DS (Designated Support), and you will need to provide the child's number. Please let us know if you have further questions :).
Hi Christina, I would like to use my donor-advised fund too. A few questions: - Is the supporter number the same as the sponsor number? - The donation needs to be initiated from the donor advised fund (providing the info you mentioned) and not from Compassion International? - Is it possible to make recurring donations from the donor-advised fund? - On my donor advised fund, the only place I can add additional info is on a online field "Note for the receiving charity". I could add the Supporter number, Supporter name, Supporter address, fund designation and the child's number. Would that work? - I have 3 kids and each one of them will sponsor a different child. Should I have 3 different recurring donations, or only one donation with the information of the 3 sponsored kids? Does it matter? Thank you, Cassio
