About Sponsorship

Frequently Asked Questions

Q. How much does it cost?

A. It costs ₹ 3500/month to sponsor a child.

Q. Is child sponsorship tax deductible?

A. Yes! We’ll send you a tax receipt for your yearly sponsorship total every February.

Q. What do I do if my contact or payment information changes?

A. Please call +91 9582241461 or email us at [email protected] to report a change of address, phone number, banking or credit card information.

Q. What if I fall behind on payments?

A. Let us know if you run into difficulty and need to make alternate arrangements. Life happens and we do our best to find a way to keep the sponsorship relationship you’ve developed until you get back on your feet. You matter to us as well.

Q. Can I post about and/or contact my sponsored child online?

A. In order to protect the wellbeing and privacy of sponsored children and their families, we ask you to only refer to a child’s first name if you are posting online. Please do not attempt to contact your sponsored child via social media as this threatens the privacy and safety for both you and your sponsored child.

Q. What communications can I expect as a sponsor?

A. We will send you a letter of introduction from your sponsored child within the first few months of your sponsorship. You’ll also receive an annual progress report on how your sponsored child is doing and a Christmas card from him/her. Additionally, we will send you a few general Food for the Hungry updates throughout the year so you can see the larger picture of sustainable development you are a part of in your child’s community.

Q. Can I send gifts to my sponsored child?

A. In North America, we often express affection through gift-now. However, when one sponsored child receives a present from their sponsor, it often negatively affects the sense of fairness in the community. It can also create an expectation for more or greater gifts. Based on feedback from our community staff, we created a Gift Guide where sponsors can choose gifts that are needed within their child’s community. Instead of sending individual presents to each sponsored child, we invite sponsors to select gifts that will help the whole community thrive.

Q. Will I always sponsor the same child?

A. Generally, you will sponsor the same child for the duration of your commitment although some rare exceptions do occur:
their family moves out of the program area
they or their parents opt out of the program
they graduate from school
they marry
the child passes away

Q. Can I visit my sponsored child?

A. Yes! If you’re planning to be in the area where your sponsored child lives, let us know before you leave Canada and we will do our best to make this possible. Arrangements can be made once you have completed our application process which is designed to protect both you and your sponsored child
