Rochelle, I am so sorry to hear that you are faced with such a difficult decision, but I am happy to help with whatever you need to do here today. Please let us know if you have any feedback for us as an organization or if we could have better served you. If this is due to a financial difficulty, I do want to make sure you are aware that we have some options that may be able to help. For example, we would be happy to cover three months' support for you and then lower your support amount to $19 for six months. Please let me know if this would help or if we could serve you better in any way. If not, please let me know and I will make your child available for another sponsor.

Financial change. Please pray for me. I need to cancel my Sponsorship, No. 07718076, immediately. Please send confirmation of cancellation to my email on file. Stop any further charges as it will affect my own bills to pay. Sincerely yours, Carlos Becerra

Carlos, I am sorry to hear you are going through some financial changes. I will be praying for you as that sounds stressful. I have stopped your automatic withdrawal as of today so we won't be charging you any more. I did want to make sure you are aware that we have some options for short term financial difficulties. For example, we would be happy to cover three months for you and then lower your support amount to $19 for six months. Please let me know if this would help. If not, let me know and I will make your child available for another sponsor as soon as possible and email you with a confirmation.

Amanda, major kudos to you. I think single moms have one (or five) of the most difficult jobs. I am so sorry that money is tight right now. Can we cover a few months of support for you to get you through the summer until October? Please let me know if this would help. Please don't feel any obligation and if it doesn't help please let me know and I will make your sponsored child available for another sponsor. God bless you!

one of the children i've been sponsoring just turned 18, so i thought she would graduate out of the program now. i misread, however, and she still has 4 years. i've been sponsoring her with a few sorority sisters and they dropped out of it, so i'm unable to pay for her and my other child i sponsor. with that being said, i'm so sad i need to cancel my sponsorship with Fernanda. her ID is EC047700192. 
i feel so sad about this but as a struggling college student supporting myself, i can't afford to pay for two kids.

Brittany, I am so sorry for the confusion and misunderstanding about completion dates. I also understand it is tough to sponsor a child as a college student these days. As you requested, I have made Fernanda available for another sponsor. Are you intending to continue supporting Kasian at this time?

I am so sorry to hear that you are thinking of canceling your sponsorship of Betha. I see that you have been sponsoring this child over two years. Is there anything that Compassion can do to help you keep your relationship going with her? Compassion would be happy to cover a three months of support, if you feel that would be helpful! Please let us know! :)

I need to cancel my sponsership please. My account number is 0766962. I hate to do this too, but could you also delete my account, so I don't have to worry about randomly getting a new child to sponser like some people have. If I decide to sponser again, in the future, I'll create a new account.

Hi Carlee-Ann, 
I am so sorry to hear that you would like to cancel your sponsorship through Compassion. Is there anything that Compassion may assist with to help you keep your sponsorship?

Also, please check your sponsor number, as I am not able to find that number in our system. If you can provide your child's number, that would be helpful as well! Thank you so much!

Hi Carlee-Anne B. 
I have taken care of canceling your account, as requested. Please know that although I have removed your kiddo from your account, I am not able to totally delete your account due to tax purposes. However, your account is not active, and no children will be added. The only reason a child is ever added to an account without specific instructions from a sponsor, is if their child has left the program and we add a new child onto your account to see if you would like to sponsor this new kiddo. Please let us know if we can anything else for you! Have a blessed evening!

Hi Shawn, I am so very sorry to hear that you and your wife are going through tough financial times! I see that you have been sponsoring Khusnul since 2013! That is fantastic! Because we value you as sponsors, we would be happy to cover your sponsorship for the next three months and then for the following three months we would be happy to reduce your rate of sponsorship to $19 a month, if you feel this would be helpful. Otherwise, we will be happy to fulfill your request to cancel. Thank you in advance for getting back with us!

Michael, I am so sorry that you need to end your support of Reynaldo :(. If this is for financial concerns, Compassion would be able to cover your support for the months of August through October and also reduce your sponsorship rate to $19 a month from November through April. If that helps, please let me know and I will take care of it right away. Otherwise, let me know if I need to still place Reynaldo back up for sponsorship.

Hi, I emailed the info email address that was listed to email nearly two weeks ago in order to cancel my sponsorship due to some financial commitments not in my control now with my family. I just saw that I was still charged for the sponsorship (and the additional charge for Partners of Compassion). I really need this cancelled as soon as possible. Thank you. -Brittany Blevins 07212635

Brittany, I am deeply sorry for our delayed response to your email requesting to cancel your sponsorship! Sadly, I don't see that we ever received your email. I'm so sorry to hear that you need to cancel your sponsorship, but I do understand and can help you. I have cancelled your sponsorship of Maria and your donations to the Partners of Compassion fund. You should receive a confirmation in the mail within 2 weeks. I apologize that your sponsorship was still charged on the 15th of this month. Would you like a refund? Thank you so much for the time you have loved and supported Maria. I pray that your financial situation improves :). If you would like to sponsor another child in the future, we would be blessed to partner with you. Have a blessed day!

My sponsored child has been changed due to struggles in India with my previous child. I have been a sponsor for nearly 6 years now but due to financial changes, I cannot afford it anymore. I have made all financial payments according to my bank statements for every month but it states I have an outstanding balance. Considering that this has been direct pay since 2011, there shouldn't be an outstanding balance, especially of $114 which would be more than three months of payment. I cannot pay that.

I wish I didn't have to cancel my sponsorship but to continue would become a hardship with other payments at the moment. What can I do to cancel my sponsorship?

Aimee, I am so sorry that you need to cancel your sponsorship of Jaspar, and I completely understand how tight finances can be. It looks like something happened where your card wasn't pulling out donations as it should have been between March and April, which is why it is showing you have a balance of $114 on your account. If you would like to continue as a sponsor for Jaspar, I can adjust your account for those two months since it looks like things didn't get set up as they should have by us. I can also cover your sponsorship for July through September as well if it would allow you to get back on your feet with the sponsorship. Let me know either way what you would like us to do. We are so grateful for your partnership over the years!

Hello Sarah, thank you for looking into it for me. I have recently switched jobs where I am making a lower income and still payments on all of my schooling. Until I find another position with flexible income to sponsor another child I would appreciate canceling the sponsorship until I can sponsor another child with a new position. I appreciate all of your help and assistance in this and look forward to working with you in the future!
