When I give a gift to my sponsored child it asks if my company matches. If my company did match would my sponsored child receive addition funds that would directly benefit them? Or would the matching funds go to the general organization?

Hello Chet! Thank you so much for your interest in setting up matching funds from your employer. Matching donations go to a general fund and  not to a specific child.  Your matching gift may be designated to support urgent and critical needs Compassion’s children face that sponsorship donations alone can’t cover – needs like disaster relief, lack of clean water or extra medical bills. You can find more information about matching gifts on our website.
