I received a letter letting me know that my sponsored child, who I've been sponsoring for 15+ years has completed the program and exited because of his age. How can I send him a final letter to say goodbye? My kids are so sad. We'd love the opportunity to say goodbye!

My sponsorship is ending in August and he is in university. So you can give a gift up to 2000.00 for them to finish there schooling or start their lives. Call Compassion as fast as you can and talk to a Representative.  Consider a large gift and get your friends and family to join in to raise the funds that would be life changing for your child and his family.  I have been sponsoring children with Compassion for 28 years. So I look forward to my next son or daughter. And if you child is an adult consider FB for contacting them once they are out of the program.

Hi Megan! It’s so exciting and bittersweet to see your precious child grow up and complete the Compassion program. Your young man Nape will continue to live in the same area with his family, so you may definitely send him a final letter if you’d like to. I’m sure that Nape would love to hear from you one last time and to know you will continue to pray for him. Please write “Final Letter” across the top of the correspondence, along with Nape’s full name and child number. Please send your final letter to Compassion's address below:
Attn Correspondence Dept
Compassion International
Colorado Springs, CO 80997-0004
If you would like, you may also send Nape a graduation gift of any amount between $10 and $2,000, but please know that there is no obligation or expectation :). Thank you for the tremendous investment you made in Nape’s life! It’s such a blessing to have you as part of Compassion’s ministry to children around the world as we partner to release children from poverty in Jesus’ name. If you are considering continuing your correspondent relationship with Nape outside of Compassion, we do ask that you please contact us so that we may provide additional important information by email at

I would also like to let you know that whenever a child leaves or completes the program, we normally send another child’s information to you via mail for your consideration. You should receive this child’s information in the mail very soon if you haven’t already :). I see a sweet little girl currently on hold for you to consider sponsoring, and we would like to hear back from you before March 1st whether you would like to sponsor her or not. If you would prefer choose a different child to sponsor, you may do this by logging in to your online My Account or by contacting us. You may either call us at 1-800-336-7676, or you may email us at We are here to help you Monday-Friday from 7 AM to 5:30 PM, Mountain Time. We look forward to hearing from you! Have a blessed day!
