Hi, we're World Vision.

We're a Christian humanitarian organization helping children, families, and their communities overcome poverty and injustice.

Love Comes First

We serve all people. No matter their religion, ethnicity, or gender.

Thriftiness

Keeping our costs down (85% to programs) means your gifts make the biggest waves possible.

Targeting Root Causes

Going after poverty's symptoms is temporary. Going after its cause is permanent.

World Vision Sponsorship is different

Because of our community-focused solutions, for every child you help, 4 more benefit, too!

Sponsored children get a hand up

Not a handout. Here at World Vision, every 60 seconds a family receives the tools to overcome povertySponsorship empowers children, families, and communities to become self-sufficient.

It’s about the children and where they live

Your child can experience your love and encouragement through letters and photos. Meanwhile, your sponsorship provides resources and improvements that benefit the whole community.

All children can experience Christ’s love

Our faith in Jesus motivates us to serve all children regardless of race, religion, ethnicity, or gender. We go where other organizations can’t. That means you can too. 

Your sponsored child deserves the best

That’s why we’ve been refining solutions to poverty and injustice for more than 65 years. Our goal is to work ourselves out of a job, empowering your child and community to thrive!

Do kids have more than one sponsor?
No. Sponsorship is one to one. Each child is matched with just one unique sponsor.

Are you ready to change a child’s life? Let’s do this! It’s your moment.

World Vision child sponsors across the U.S. share their stories of being called by God to be sponsors and the impact of sponsorship on their families.

Leslie Kelly 

“I feel very lucky that I was born and grew up in a country like the United States where I didn’t really want for anything. Sponsoring a child made me realize that many places in the world are not that way. I need to be more thankful for the blessings that I have.”

Aleda Stone

“I was unable to have children, so my husband, Tom, and I adopted three children from Korea: Starre, Kascade, and Boone. I had hoped for a family of six, so sponsoring a child through World Vision seemed to fill some of that need.”

Heather Nickell

“We’ve added three children to our World Vision family, each one of them sharing a birthday with one of our own children. First we added Joel from Uganda and Ivan from the Dominican Republic. Most recently, we sponsored Daniela from Romania “

Susan McClung

“I chose to become a World Vision sponsor in 2006 after our fourth child died just a few weeks before she was to be born. God showed me how being part of this child’s life would soothe my hurting heart and bring joy to our family.”

What you will get when you sponsor a child

The fun stuff

Letters, photos, drawings, and personal updates about your sponsored child and their family. Every year, you’ll also get a digital community progress report to show how your sponsorship is making a difference!

Make it personal.

Check out these extra ways you can connect with and bless your sponsored child:

1. Send a special gift for birthdays and holidays
2. Send email, cards or packages
3. Visit your child in person

Joy. Pure joy.

When you become a sponsor, you become part of a global community of people who care for the “least of these.” You get to show God’s love to a child in extreme poverty. You get the joy of being a part of their story.
