Hi Jennifer! I am so sorry about your husbands job and I pray that he finds new work soon. I understand how difficult this can be and we can certainly help you. Could your husband please contact us to discontinue his sponsorship of Zion? For security purposes, I was able to cancel your child but not his. I need his permission to cancel this account because he is the primary sponsor for Zion. I apologize for this inconvenience but am happy to place Zion back up for sponsorship once we hear from Jodi. God bless you both! :)

Barry, I'm sorry to hear that you're faced with such a difficult decision. :( I wanted to make sure that you are aware that we do have some options if this is due to a short term financial difficulty. 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 you to keep the relationship that you have with your child. If not, let me know and I'll make your child available for another sponsor.

I like the option you suggested  --- That would be wonderful!  Thank you very much for working with me to keep the relationship we have with our sponsored child!  I recently switched to a much lower paying job and am having to re-budget finances.

Barry, Great! I'm so glad we could help you in this time! I have taken care of this for you so starting in November the support will be $19 for six months. Please let me know if I can be of any further assistance.

Randall, I see that you have been supporting Jovens for 2 1/2 years now. I am so sorry that you have been faced with this difficult decision :(. I do not know what your situation looks like but I wanted to make sure you know about the options we have available for you in order to help you maintain your relationship with your boy if possible. We would be happy to cover three months for you and even reduce your rate to $19 for up to 6 months. This means, your support would be $19 during the months of November through April of 2015 and would resume back to the $38 beginning in May of 2015. Please let me know if either of these options would help you and I would be happy to update your account. If not, please let me know and I will make Jovens available for another sponsor.

Sadly, we need to cancel our sponsorship of Kevin and Ashly.  Our sponsor # is 2205218  Hopefully sometime in the future we can resume sponsorship of the children or new children.

Kathy, I'm so sorry that you're faced with such a difficult decision. I hope to help any way that I can. We do have some options for short term financial difficulty. For example, we'd be happy to cover your support for three months and then lower your support amount to $19 per month per child for six months. I also noticed that you also give to the Partners of Compassion fund at $8 a month. You are welcome to take a break from giving to this general fund if it would help you to be able to continue your relationship with one or both of your children. This it's tough to decide between children, but you could also just cancel one of your children and keep the other one. Please let me know if any of these options would help. If not, let me know and I'll make your children available for other sponsors.

Sponsorship.


I've been behind on my payments recently due to a change in my financial situation. I really do not want to stop my sponsorship but I dont think i can afford it right now. Do I have any other options other than cancelling my sponsorship?

Patrick, I'm so sorry for the confusion. We are happy to help you with whatever you need to do at this time.

Please let us know if there was any way that we could have better served you during your time as a sponsor. We relish the opportunity to make our program better and hope that you will share your feedback with us prior to your cancellation.

If your request is due to a short term financial difficulty, we have some options that may be able to help you to keep the relationship that you have with your child. For example, we'd be happy to 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. We also have several general funds that you are welcome to give to on whatever basis you would like. Please let me know if any of these options would help you in your situation. If not, let me know and I'll make your child available for another sponsor.

Renee, I'm sorry to hear that you're struggling financially right now. :( Regrettably, I was unable to find an account with your email address and child that you mentioned is sponsored by someone else. Please make sure that the child ID number is correct, and email ciinfo@compassion.com or call 800-336-7676.

Hello Keith, I am happy to assist you. I am sorry to hear that you need to cancel. May I ask if there is anything we could have done to serve you better? I see that you have been sponsoring with Compassion for almost 8 years and want to make sure you are aware that we do have options for you if this is due to financial constraints. Right now, your support is current through the end of August. If we covered your support for the months of September-November and reduced your rate to $19 for 6 months, would this help you? Please let me know if this would help you maintain your sponsorship of Matius and I will update your account.  If not, please let me know and I will make Matius available for another sponsor.

Hello I'm a College Student, and currently struggling with financial stability. Is there any way my child (HO2430403) can be transferred to another sponsor at this time?

Hello Alyssa! Thank you for letting us know about your situation. I am so grateful for your heart and sacrifice in trying to support a child through college as I know that during this season, finances can be tight. I have made Alessandra available for another sponsor. Good luck with your classes and please know you can sponsor with us again when you are ready! :) You may also be interested in our correspondent program. We assign correspondents for sponsors who do not have the time or desire to
write and this may be a better option for you as it has no financial commitment. The requirement to be a correspondent is a commitment to write at least three
times a year. In turn, you will receive three letters a year from the child. Our
experience has shown that children who receive consistent encouragement tend to
set higher goals for themselves. Please let me know if this is something you think you might be interested in.
