I’ve looked all over the website and I can’t find where else to do this, but I need to cancel my sponsorship. I’m in college and am no longer being supported by my mother and I just can’t make rent anymore.. I’m worried about my sponsor child not being taken care of if I go.. Can I postpone payments for a while or get a guarantee that he will be okay? I really care about him, I feel like I’m abandoning him..
Sponsor number 07503926

Katrina, I am so sorry that you have had to make the decision to cancel your sponsorship. Though its a difficult decision, you definitely need to be able to take care of yourself too! Yes, if you cancel, your child will actually be completely taken care of. He remains in the program, receiving all the benefits of the program, while we search for a new sponsor for him. You can also write him a final letter if you would like to! I am sure he would be comforted to know that you still love and care for him so much!

Okay that makes me feel so much better. What do I have to do to cancel my sponsorship then? Can you do it for me or do I have to do something?

Hi Katrina, 

We went ahead and took care of removing your sweet child from your account and placing him back up for sponsorship. :)  If you would like, you may write him a final letter. Please write “Final Letter” across the top of the correspondence, along with your child's name and child's number, (DR024201892). Please send your letter to Compassion's address below:  

Compassion International
Colorado Springs, CO 80997
 
If in the future you would like to sponsor another child, we would be blessed to partner with you again!
