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.

Though I continue to sponsor through Compassion, I would like my account name to be changed from:  "Pioneer Club From SS Church"  to "Andrew Nee".  In the recent past this has also caused a lot of delays to billing and payment.

Hi Andrew! I would be happy to help you! Regrettably, due to IRS compliance reasons, I am not able to simply change the name on an account to a completely different name. However, I would be happy to create a new account under your name and have Alice Bawah transferred from the Pioneer Club to your account. Would you like me to do this for you? If so, would you like all the same information to carry over to this new account (i.e. address, phone and email)?

Andrew, as you requested, I have created a new account for you and moved Alice Bawah to this new account. I am emailing your sponsor number so that you can create a web account of this new sponsorship record.

Hi! My name on my account is Priscilla Godfreg, but this is wrong. It should be Priscilla Godfrey. If someone could change this for me that would be really helpful. Thanks!

Hi, I just got married so I need to change my last name and add my husband's name to my account. It's listed as Kriscinda Magnus right now and I need it to be "Ryan and Kriscinda Johnson". Could you please do that? Thanks!

Hi Deana! We can do this, but we actually cannot simply change the name on the account from Ellen's to yours due to tax laws. We would need to create a full new account for you and move the child over to that account. Also, is Ellen under 18 years old? If she is a minor, we don't need her permission to change the sponsorship over to you, but we will need to hear from her if she is over 18 years old.

I need to have the last name changed on my account, and if possible, add my husband. My married name is Chavez. His name is Stephen.
