Could I receive a gift history for my child?  He has had two sponsors before myself.  I have wondered what he has and doesn't have.  It would be so helpful!  Thank you!

Hi Chris! I think you are wanting this information for the boy that you sponsor but I'm sending information on both of your children via email just in case. Please let me know if there is anything else I can help with.

Susan, I sent money for my child and also for his family. How can I find out how that was used?

Hi Paula! I am happy to help you. :) After reviewing your account, I noticed that you sent a $100 family gift to Alfred as well as a $40 child gift on April 1st. Thank you so much for blessing your boy and his family in such a tangible way! Since it takes two to three months for the gift to get to your child, and two to
three months for their letter to reach you, you will receive a thank you letter in the mail with details on what your child and his family were able to purchase with your generous gifts, in about six months. If you do not receive a letter by October please
contact us again so we may contact our field office.

Chris, I am sorry that you did not receive the original email that was sent regarding those gifts! I checked your account and it looks like we tried sending another email to you again yesterday afternoon with the previous gift history for Dieudone. I certainly hope you received it this time and have the information you were looking for. Please let me know if you still have not received our email to you.

Chris, I just received an email back saying that the email address that you have listed on your sponsorship and here on the community is undeliverable. Please email me at socialmedia@compassion.com and I will reply with the email that I have been attempting to send. I'm so sorry for the inconvenience.

Would it be possible for me to receive a gift history for my child as well? She had a sponsor before me and it would be nice to know how long she was with the other sponsor and how often she received gifts before.

Would it be possible for me to receive a gift history for my child (Luzence) as well? The child ID is EI1770041. He is 17 and it would be helpful for us to know how often he received gifts before us. The account is under my husband's name. Thanks so much.

Hello Katie! I would be more than happy to provide this information for you. As requested, I sent you and your husband an email with the gift history for Luzence. I want to personally thank you for choosing to sponsor an older child and impact his life in such a tangible way for his last few years in the program!

This is going to be a pain, and for that I truly apologize. I'm hoping to finihs up sending out my Christmas gifts (by way of individual child gifts) and I want to be sure to include those of my correspondents who are still not receiving monetary gifts from their financial sponsors. I know all my older kids have received gifts, but I either can't remember the histories of each of the others, or I wonder if their status might have changed. Wouid one of you lovely Compassion ladies be so kind as to help me out with this?

Good morning Lindsay! I hope you had a great weekend. Please don't apologize as this is not any trouble at all for me to look up! I am happy to give you this information on your children and have sent you an email with each of their gift history that you can keep for your records. Thank you so much for wanting to bless each of them in such a tangible way! On a side note, just keep in mind that if you give a general child gift to them for Christmas, they will also receive a gift from the Christmas Program Fund in your honor :). I am getting so excited for this wonderful season!

I just went over the spreadsheet in detail and would you be able to tell me if the 2014 gifts to Shedleur, Sultana, and Kanchan came from me? I know I arranged to have Kanchan sent money in August, and I arranged to have funds sent for 2 other birthdays in or around July but I must have made note of them in written letters, not ones I wrote online.

Hi again Lindsay! I am sorry for any confusion on the spreadsheet :(. I tried to make sure I made note on the gift list if any of the gifts were from you but I went ahead and double checked your account to make sure who they were from. Our records do show that these gifts were from you. Please let me know if you have any other questions regarding the gifts that were distributed to your children.

Thnaks, Emily! The spreadsheet was fantastic! I just wanted to make sure on those correspondent gifts before I sent something an potentially doubled up. Related to that- Are the financial sponsors made aware when the correspondents are giving financial gifts? I'm able to give so I'm eager to do a little something extra, but I don't want to step on any toes.

Lindsay, in answer to your question, financial sponsors are not notified when correspondents send their financially sponsored child an extra gift. However, I would imagine that most financial sponsors would be so thrilled that their child is being blessed that they would not be offended if you sent a gift.  I don't think you are stepping on any toes.

Good morning! Is it possible to get the giving history for my 2 oldest boys as well? I know they've had several sponsors and would love to know what there history has been like. I was also curious if it would be possible to get their past pictures in an e-mail. I'd love to see how they've grown! Thank you ladies! You are amazing!!

Thank you Susan!! I'm so grateful to have this information!! If it isn't too much of a hassle to do, would it be possible to get the past pictures and gift history for the new young lady that was added to my account today?

Sending financial gifts to correspondent sponsored children.


Hi! I am thinking about sending a financial gift to my correspondent children's families but I first wanted to check and see if my two co-sponsored children already receive gifts from their sponsors. Could you please check for me?? I correspond with Lucy Adede Okudjeto and Eloie Remy.

Alicia, it looks like you're setup on automatic withdrawal with us from a credit card. If you wish to use the same card, feel free to just email your request to us at ciinfo@us.ci.org with the specific amount you would like to give and which child you would like to donate to. We are happy to process your request for a one time gift this way. We ask that you do not provide any banking information or card numbers in your email as this is not a secure form of communication. You may also call our office at (800) 336-7676 and one of our representatives will be happy to assist you :).

Because you are not Lucy and Eloie's financial sponsor, you will not have the option of giving a gift to them through your My Account on www.compassion.com
