Hi Judith! I am so grateful that you are interested in sponsoring a child with Compassion. If you would like to financially sponsor a child, but have someone else listed as the correspondent, we would be happy to set that up for you. This way all of the financial information would be in your name, but they will be able to write letters back and forth with the child. I would recommend calling us at, 800-336-7676, Monday through Friday from 7 am to 5:30 pm Mountain Time. You may also email us at, firstname.lastname@example.org. We would need the child's number and the source code on the packet. We would also need the correspondent's and your full name, mailing address, phone number and email address. I recommend calling because we can not accept credit card or bank account information via email due to security risks.
