Frequently Asked Questions

Q: What do I do when someone wants to sponsor my assigned child?

A: Give the potential sponsor the packet to take home. Ask him or her to complete the sign-up form inside the packet and mail it directly to Compassion by the date on the packet or sooner.

Q: What will a sponsor receive next from Compassion?

A: Let the new sponsor know he or she will receive a complete Welcome Kit from Compassion including everything needed to know about writing letters, sending child gifts, and much more.

Q: Can I get another child sponsorship packet if I find a sponsor for my assigned child?

A: Yes! Just call us at (888) 503-4587, Monday through Friday, 7 a.m. to 5:30 p.m.

Q: What do I do with a leftover child sponsorship packet if my child is not sponsored?

A: You do not need to send it back to us. The cost of postage is more than the cost to reprint new ones. Also, packets tend to get tattered when they go through the mail more than once.

NOTE: Please remember that your child sponsorship packet is assigned uniquely to you. There is an expiration date printed on the top of the acceptance form in each packet. Please keep this date in mind.
