I got married and need to change my name from Gerhard to Iyengar (that's spelled with an i). Also, I've been listed as Ms. Gerhard and friends since I sponsored my first child in high school, but for a long time now it has just been me.

Good Morning, Susan! Regrettably, I cannot remove a name from an account for tax purposes. I can; however, create a new sponsorship account for you under Susan Abell and transfer Marco. Since both you and Daniel are listed on the account,  I will need Daniel's permission to do so too. Let me know if that works for you and if all the information on the current account will transfer over to your new account.

Hi, I also got married a few months ago, and my last name changed from Tang to Chang. I also changed my first name so now my English name (Joy) is my official first name. Could you help me change my name from Chu Tang to Joy Chang? Thank you!

Hi Joy! I love your names (both of them! :D). As requested, I've updated your account with your new married name and English first name. 

I'm glad you contacted us because I notice we tried to contact you regarding your mailing address. We had a child letter returned to us as undeliverable and emailed you hoping to verify your correct address so that we can send it back out to you! Please update your address online or email me at socialmedia@compassion.com with your full correct address and we can verify/correct it and get your mail back out to you! :)

Hello!

Our AWANA club at church had started sponsoring a child and as the AWANA Commander, I was handling all the communication with our sponsor child and have actually been the one paying our monthly sponsorship. Would it be possible for the name on the account to be changed to mine (Sam Huckaby) since everything else on the account is mine (email, payment details, etc)? My wife and I decided it would just be easier to take on the sponsorship ourselves, so that we can be able to provide more personal contact.

Thanks so much for your help.

Hi Sam! Regrettably, I am not able to simply change the name on the account from your AWANA group to your name because of tax rules; however, I can absolutely create a new account in your name and move Mrdul to your new account. Let me know if you would like me to do this for you.

Ah, okay. I thought that might be the case. That works for me, if you wouldn't mind. Will I need to log in right away to get all my payment details sorted out, or will those be moved over along with Mrdul?

Everything will be moved over for you, Sam. I've got it taken care of :)! Once your new account is created, you will receive a new sponsor number in the mail. Have a wonderful rest of your day!

I hope this is the best place to ask for my name to be changed as well! I can't find another place to do this. Can my name be changed from Heather Carlson to Heather Venneman? I just got married this summer :)

Thank you!!

It's possible, but have you verified your address online to ensure we have the correct address? Please let me know if the address we have on file for you is still the correct mailing address and I'll let our mailing department know that they can continue sending mail to you there.
