Our Sponsorship Rate is Changing to £28 Per Month

As one of our amazing sponsors, we’re so grateful for all your support.

You are bringing real hope and lasting change to your sponsored child, through your faithful commitment, messages of encouragement and loving prayers. Thank you.

As you know, we want the very best for the children who attend Compassion projects across the world. Our local church partners go to extraordinary lengths to ensure that each and every child receives the spiritual, emotional and physical care they need to step into the bright future that awaits them.

Since 2014, our sponsorship rate had remained unchanged at £25 per month, but today these funds no longer go as far. The reality is, it simply costs more to provide our programme than it did six years ago.

We are committed to providing exceptional individual care for children in poverty, and this will not change. In the midst of inflation and rising costs, it is vitally important that the wellbeing of the children is not compromised.

Our sponsorship rate is changing from £25 to £28 per month. We have already made this change for new sponsors, so if you sponsored a child in 2020 you will already be paying £28 per month. Our existing sponsors will move to the new rate from 1 April 2020, and we wrote to all our supporters in November giving them this information.

Please know that we have not made this decision lightly.

We understand that many of our supporters may also be feeling the pressure of rising costs. So, if you are unable to make the increase then please let us know as soon as possible by calling 01932 836490 and we will arrange for you to continue sponsoring at your current rate.

We have factored into our financial planning that a small number of sponsors won’t be able to make this change, so please rest assured that your sponsored child will continue to receive the same exemplary care and support as every other child.

If you pay by Direct Debit, your sponsorship rate will increase on your next payment on or after 1 April 2020. If you pay by credit card or by any other method, we will have already contacted you and asking you to make the change from 1 April onwards.

The ministry of Compassion has always been and always will be about coming together as a global family in Christ with a shared vision of releasing children from poverty in Jesus’ name. It’s such a privilege to be serving God’s ministry at Compassion, with you. We hope that you will stand with us as we continue to work as the Body of Christ to transform the lives of children.

We will send more information about the rate change by email to all our supporters in February and March.

Please do get in touch if you have any questions about the rate change, any other aspects of your sponsorship, or the work of Compassion. You can call our team on 01932 836490 and we'd be happy to carry on the conversation.
