I would like to cancel my monthly support as I cannot afford it now. I would like to cancel it completely and in the future if I am able to sign up again, but I am not interested in doing anything but canceling for right now. Thank you!

I need to cancel my sponsorship.. I have recently ran into some financial struggles and I could really use the extra money each month, I love sponsoring and I will definitely sponsor again one day, but for now I'm just not in a good situation to do so.. I'm heartbroken about it but I'm praying Karen will have a new sponsor. I've posted this message once and someone replied to me but it still came out of my account.. I need to cancel still please

Hello, I regret to inform that I must cancel my donations for my child immediately. This will be long term unfortunately because of extreme financial situations. I am very sorry but I pray my child will be placed into a much better sponsor family. Thank you.

Hey Claire! I am so sorry that you are dealing with such difficult financial instability right now and cannot sponsor your child any longer :(. I do see that another representative replied to your email this morning and offered some financial help to you. Would you let us know if that does indeed help you? If it doesn't we would still be able to place your child up for sponsorship.

Bennett, I am so sorry that you need to end your sponsorship for Benjamin. If it would help and this is due to financial concerns, Compassion would be willing to cover your donations for the months of September through November and also reduce your sponsorship rate to $19 a month for December through April. If not, please let me know and I will place your child back up for sponsorship.

I need to cancel my sponsorship. I am in school and my loans have been cut in half so i can not afford to pay for the sponsorship anymore since I still have 3 years left in school. I tried doing it over the phone and it said it was taking care of and then the next month it took it out again. My donor/sponsor number is 07675873

I totally understand what you are going through with schooling! I've taken care canceling your sponsorship today. No more donations will pull from your account.

Hello,
I am needing to cancel my sponsorship.  My account number is 02547971 and my sponsor child's ID is CO055300477.
I've really enjoyed being able to serve my sponsor child but I feel like it's time to cancel the sponsorship at this time.  Compassion is an amazing organization and I will definitely be working with you in the future! 

Also, I would like to send my child a final letter if I can.  Thanks!

Emily, I am sorry to hear you need to cancel :(. If this is due to financial struggles, Compassion would love to gift you with three months of sponsorship covered (September through November) as well as a reduction in your sponsorship rate to $19 a month for December through April. If that would help you be able to continue, please let me know. Otherwise, let me know and I will take care of placing your child up for sponsorship again.

Hi Susan,

I regret that I have to cancel my sponsorship after 10 years. Currently, I sponsor Brainin Elpidio Batista Beltre (Child ID: DR056200998). I look forward to sponsoring with Compassion again in the future, when it doesn't pose a hardship for me. Thank you.

James, I am so sorry that you've had to make the decision to give up your sponsorship of Brainin :(. If your financial hardship is temporary, Compassion may be able to assist you with your sponsorship while you get back on your feet. Compassion would be able to cover your support through November and also reduce your sponsorship rate to $19 a month for December through April. Do let me know if that would help you continue or if I need to place Brainin back up for sponsorship still.

Hi Sarah,

That will be fine. That will give me 6 months to figure it out, and hopefully be in a stronger position. Please go ahead with this plan (covering through Nov, $19/mo Dec-April).

Thank you,
James

Hi James! I did cover three months of sponsorship today, but I actually noticed that your donation for September pulled out today already. If you would like me to, I can refund that $38 for this month or the three months I covered for you will go towards October through December donations. I just need to know what you'd like me to do before I change the rate for you as well :).

Hello,

I am sad to say that I need to cancel my membership. As much as I would like to continue my family and I cannot afford to continue this at this time and we feel the need to pull out so that we can invest in other areas that we feel called to do.

Please let me know if any more info is required from my end.

Urgent need to cancel sponsorship. I hate to do this, but there is simply no other way I can afford it at all anymore. Many things have came up and I can't afford it even if we lower it. I'm sorry to do this. Sponsorship # 07746063. Thank you.

Sadly, I am going to have to cancel my sponsorship. Due to a change in my financial staus  I am no longer able to afford it. My ID is 02115603. My child is Yeimi (ES084300177).  Your attention to this matter will be greatly appreciated.

Hi Wendy! I am so sorry to hear that you may need to cancel your sponsorship of Yeimi. I see that you have been supporting this sweet child since 2011. Because we value your relationship with Yeimi, Compassion would be happy to cover the next three months of sponsorship for you. This would cover October through December. In January, if you would still like a bit of additional help, we would then also be happy to reduce your sponsorship rate to $19 per month for the following three months. Please let us know if you feel this would allow you to keep you relationship going with Yeimi. :) We look forward to your response!

I regret that I have to cancel my sponsorship after 6 years. I look forward to sponsoring with Compassion again in the future, when it doesn't pose a hardship for me. 
Please place Yeimi back up for sponsorship so that someone who has the financial means at this time can do so.

Thank you.

Stacie, I am so sorry to hear that you are faced with such a difficult decision. Please do let us know if you have any feedback on how we could better serve you as a supporter. I am not sure exactly what has led you to this point, but we are more than happy to step in and help in the short term if you would be interested. For example, we could cover your support for three months and then lower your support amount to $19 for six months. Please let me know if this would help you in your specific situation. If not, I completely understand, and will make Bryan available for another sponsor.
