Sponsoring a child in need and changing lives for good makes for a great New Year’s resolution. You’ll have the opportunity to connect with a child whose entire family and community will benefit from your tangible love and support through basics we often take for granted — like nutritious food, clean water, medical care, education, safe shelter, and spiritual nurture.

Did you know that you have a choice of making a monthly sponsorship donation, or donating the full annual amount in one easy transaction? As the new year approaches, it’s a quick and rewarding way to earn a significant tax deduction while also making a significant impact in the life of a child.

How does it work?

Once you’ve selected a special child to sponsor, based on country, gender, age, or birthday, just select “yearly” and then click “update” on the “my basket” page. Your contribution will change from $35 — the amount of a monthly sponsorship donation — to $420 for the year.

It’s that simple. And you’re still helping to bring sustainable transformation to a child, family, and community for just over a dollar per day!

Don’t forget the deadline: midnight Eastern/9 p.m. Pacific on December 31, 2014.

One transaction, one tax credit — and an entire year of getting to know a child who will experience hope and stability from your love, prayers, and support. What better way to start off 2015?

Sponsor a child for 2015. Make sure to do so before midnight Eastern/9 p.m. Pacific time on New Year’s Eve, and select the “per year” donation option to receive the maximum credit on this year’s taxes!
