Frequently asked questions

How do Christmas cards help empower my sponsored child and community?

Christmas cards help your sponsored child learn about God’s love for them. They’ll experience the bright colors and pictures and practice reading the words and the scripture. And because it comes from you, they’ll be reminded how much you care–which offers hope and joy this Christmas. When children are empowered to see their God-given potential and get sustainable access to essentials like clean water, food, education, healthcare, and more – the whole community benefits by overcoming poverty for good.

How does my gift to the Sponsorship Ministry Fund help?

Your gift in any amount assists in meeting the needs of children and families who are waiting to be sponsored and helps World Vision to respond when disasters strike in sponsorship communities. Your donation helps provide things like seeds, tools, and training, access to clean water, children’s education, skills and vocational training for parents, economic development programs, emergency food, shelter, and recovery assistance from disasters, Christian witness and spiritual nurturing, and more.

How Is my Special Gift used to help my child’s family and community?

Your monthly donations and prayers for your sponsored child are such a generous gift! But what if you’d like to give a little extra so your child can enjoy a special surprise? In most sponsorship countries, you can give a Special Gift above and beyond your regular donation to provide extra things your child and their family need. Please note that all Special Gift donations must be a minimum of $100. To help ensure your gift goes as far as possible to help meet your sponsored child and their family’s unique needs, each Special Gift must be $100-$200. 25% of all gifts under $200 and any amount over $200 will go to help your child’s community.

Based on the needs of your sponsored child, our local staff will take your child and their family shopping to select things like school supplies, clothing, livestock, or something else they could really use. The entire community also can benefit from gifts like agricultural tools, building supplies, support for a local school or clinic, or a water tank.
