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.

Hello!
My banking name does not include last name Rucker
Would you please remove it so to match my credit card and financial statements?
It should just be Tânia-Maria Xavier
Thank you

Hi Tânia-Maria! We will certainly update your account for you! Regrettably, I was not able to locate your account using your name and email address. Could you please reply with your sponsor number or child's ID number? Thank you! :)

I got married a few years ago, and I'd like to change the name on my account from "Kim GIlmour" to "Kim Bowser."  My husband (Isaac Bowser) should be the co-sponsor.  Thank you!

Hello, I noticed some people who had issues with changing their names on their account got help from this site. I would like to input my Korean name after my first name Joyce, so with my English name, Korean name and last name, it would read Joyce Heeae Noh. I couldn't seem to do this myself through account settings when I went in. Can someone please help me with this? Thanks.

Hi Reid! I would love to help you out with moving the account over to your name, but I cannot find the Lifegroup account with the name or your email address. Do you know the sponsors number? Due to tax reasons, I cannot just change the name on the account for you, but would need to create an entire new account in Nyssa's name. Is that ok with you?

My sister set up my account for my boyfriend and I and spelled his last name wrong. It should be McCarty, not Mccartny (or however she spelled it). Can someone help me fix this? Thank you!

Hello, I got married recently and have changed my name from Kira Combs to Kira Boyle. I have found no way that I can change this on the Compassion website and would appreciate any help on this. Also, it would be awesome to be able to add my husband to the account too if he ever wanted to write letters. :)

I also got married recently and would like to change my last name from Bello to Chacko and add my husband Binil Chacko to my account.
Our church recently held compassion Sunday and we sponsored another child. I signed up as Sky Chacko. Will the new child be linked to our account?
Thank you!

Hello Sky! Congratulations on your recent marriage, and thank you so much for sponsoring another child :)! I was able to change your name on your account. Our staff do search for current accounts before we create a new account for a sponsor, so the new child should be added to your correct account :). If we happen to create a new account for that child not realizing you already have one, we can always move him right over to your current account too. It doesn't look like we have received the child's packet yet anyway, so we should be safe!

I need to have my wife's name (Sarah) added to the account. Only my name appears on everything and I want her to feel a part since this was originally her idea. Could everything read "Daniel and Sarah Cantrell"? Thanks.

Hi Daniel! I am happy to help you :). I have updated the name on your account to have your wife's name as well. This will take 1-2 days to update on your online account, and all of your mail being sent out after this change will be listed as Daniel & Sarah. We're so grateful for your hearts to love and support your sweet kiddo! Have a blessed day :).

Luke, I can certainly help you with this. Regrettably, I was unable to locate her account. Please post your child's ID number here or email socialmedia@compassion.com with more information so that we can assist you. How would you like your names to be listed on your account? Please note that due to system upgrades going on right now all processing is delayed.
