FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
What does Education Sponsorship provide?
Education Sponsorship ensures that your sponsored child is able to attend school, remain within their family’s care, receive healthy meals to fuel their studies, and save for their future education!
What does Care Sponsorship provide?
Care Sponsorship helps ensure that an orphan living within an orphanage has the healthy food, medical care, education, and 24/7 loving care they need to grow up happy and healthy!
Can I sponsor more than one child?
Yes! You can sponsor as many children as you like!
What is the minimum amount I need to contribute to sponsor a child?
The minimum amount to sponsor a child is $35 a month. You are also welcome to support the work of AGCI for any amount by giving a one-time gift.
I have budgeted more than $35 a month for sponsorship. Can I put additional sponsorship funds towards my sponsored child?
Yes! There is a huge need for sponsorship in our Orphan Care Sponsorship program. By allocating more sponsorship funds towards your sponsored child, you’re allowing us to further advocate for more children!
Are my sponsorships and gifts tax-deductible?
Yes! All contributions to All God’s Children International are tax-deductible in the United States. You will receive a receipt for each gift you give.
Why does it cost more to fully sponsor a child’s care through AGCI than some other organizations?
Sponsoring a child through AGCI is different than sponsoring a child at other organizations. At the homes we partner with, children receive exceptional care 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. All aspects of these children’s lives have been entrusted to our partners, from daily food and nutrition to assuring proper medical care, developmentally appropriate play and education, and a safe environment to live. This level of care requires trained staff and well-maintained facilities.
Will I be the only person sponsoring the child I’m helping?
In some countries, it may cost up to $600 a month to fully sponsor the holistic care of a child and ensure they receive the proper food, therapy, shelter, medical care and education they need to thrive. We break this up into a more affordable amount of $35 a month, although you are welcome to fully sponsor a child. In select countries in which our Education Sponsorship program is in place, just one sponsor at $35 a month may fully provide the specific needs for a sponsored child.
If I need to discontinue my child sponsorship, what happens to my sponsored child?
We understand the realities of individual financial situations. If you need to discontinue your child sponsorship, we will attempt to replace your sponsorship. We would love your help in that process and welcome your advocacy for your child with family, friends, and co-workers!
What if my child leaves AGCI’s care or the AGCI Sponsorship Program?
Our prayer is that many children AGCI sponsors will be permanently united with adoptive families, reunited with their birth families, or that their families will rise out of poverty and no longer need the assistance of a sponsorship program. When you join us as a sponsor, your sponsorship will continue even if your child is adopted or reunited with their birth family. Should this happen, we will rejoice with you over your child’s permanent placement in a family or their graduation from the Sponsorship Program and we will reassign a new child to you who is in need of a sponsor. Your ongoing sponsorship commitment can have a lifelong impact on the lives of many vulnerable children.
