How Sponsorship Works

Child sponsorship is a way of giving that connects one compassionate person (like you!) with one child in need. Sponsoring a child gives her the chance to grow up healthy, educated and safe – forever changing the course of her life and future. And you just might find that it changes you, too.

1. Sponsor a child today
For just $36 a month (about a dollar a day), you can sponsor a child in need in the U.S. or around the world — it's up to you.

2. Welcome to sponsorship
You'll receive a welcome kit, with a photo and other info about your sponsored child, including how to start.

3. Watch your child's life change 
You'll get to know your child and soon experience the true joy of helping transform a child's life and future. We'll keep you updated on progress, too.

When you sponsor a child, Save the Children combines your monthly support with the support of other sponsors to help your sponsored child and others — creating a "ripple effect" of positive change throughout your child's community.
