I need to calcel my sponsorship. I being tying to cancel my sponsorship for a while but haven't being able to. My original sponsor child stoped being part of the program so I thought that my account was cancel but today I realize that money was deducted from my bank account so I checked my compassion account and found out I was given a new sponsor child which I didn't approved. I liked being part of this program but I can not longer sponsor any child due to personal family issues going on. can you please help me cancel my sponsorship.

Nely, I am so sorry that you are going through a situation with your family and are also no longer able to support your child :(. I can place your child back up for sponsorship, but I am not able to find an account with either the name or email your provided on this forum. Can you please give me your sponsor number?

Jose, I am so sorry that you, too, need to cancel your sponsorship :(. I actually replied to your comment on another post about this yesterday and I don't think you saw it. If this is due to financial concerns, Compassion would be able to cover your support for the months you had missed earlier in the year as well as November through January. We can also reduce your sponsorship rate to $19 for February through July. This would be a gift; there is no need for you to pay it back at any time. Please let me know if this would help you!

Hello Crystal, I am sorry that your work hours have been cut. Sending prayers that God will open new doors for you. I have cancelled your sponsorship of Samuel. If you would like to say good-bye to him, you are welcome to write a final letter. Please write, "Final Letter," along with your sponsor number and the child's ID on the top of the letter. Please mail this letter to:

Compassion International 
Colorado Springs, CO 80997

If your work circumstances change and you would like to partner with Compassion in the future, we would be blessed to partner with you then. Take care and have faith in the Lord, he is sovereign!

Thank you!!! We will send a final letter. This truly breaks my heart. I'm hoping our situation will change and when it does we will certainly be back. We will still continue to pray for Samuel. We believe God has big things in store for him and his family. I sincerely hope he gets sponsored by someone else very soon. (But also secretly hope that he will be available when our financial situation changes.)
Thank you again.

I am needing to cancel my sponsorship also, I am sorry, I have sponsored the child for quite a few years now, and he is older than my college age daughter. I think most of us think our sponsorship is over at 18...and I believe this is misleading and it is very hard to end the sponsorship. I have taken on another child with a different sponsor and would like to end this one since he is no longer a child. Thank You.

OTOH, in many of these countries kids get a late start (or don't get started in school at all until they are in Compassion) and cannot get all the way through high school, even, by the age of 18.  I have a sponsored girl about to turn 18 who is about to be graduated and I wish she could continue on with Compassion a few more years to get her settled into adult life.

Hi Lorra!
I am so sorry that you feel mislead. We do have the graduation age for our children based on the specific need for each country. Over the years we have found that an extra couple years after high school really gives the child more opportunity to go to collage, trade schools, etc. Please know that we are very thankful for all the support that you have given Brandon over the years. I have now removed him from your account. If you would like, you may write him a final letter. Please write “Final Letter” across the top of the correspondence, along with your child's name and child's number, (CO042400213). Please send your letter to Compassion's address below:  

Compassion International
Colorado Springs, CO 80997
 
If in the future you would like to sponsor another child, we would be blessed to partner with you again!

Ashlie, I am so sorry to hear that you are having family issues. I know sometimes that is the worst kind of issues. :( As you requested, I have made your child available for another sponsor. Please let us know if you are ever able to sponsor again. We'd be happy to have you back!

Tim, I'm so sorry that you have to cancel your sponsorship for your child in Bolivia. If this is due to financial concerns, Compassion would be able to cover your donations through January and also reduce your sponsorship rate to $19 a month for February through June. Please let me know either way if this would help or if you still need to cancel.

Lily, I'm sorry to hear that you are facing some financial hardships and need to end your sponsorship of Kimberly. We greatly appreciate the difference you have been making in Kimberly's life for the past 5 months, so Compassion would be happy to help you by covering your support for 3 months. This means we would cover your support for the months of November through January. If this would help, please let me know, and we'd be happy to take care of this for you. However, if you would still like to cancel, please let me know, and I will make Kimberly available for sponsorship. I look forward to your reply!
