$25 a month provides for the basic needs of food, clothing and education for a child in need. Children sponsored through People to People have a higher rate of graduation, finding salaried employment and becoming influential leaders in their community and church.
Individual Sponsorship: Support from all sponsors is combined to assist in the basic needs of all children in a location while giving sponsors an opportunity to connect with an individual child. A profile of a child is provided and correspondence between the child and sponsor is possible.
Location Sponsorship: Support from all sponsors is combined to assist in the basic needs of children in a specific location where families are transient. Newsletters from the ministry and correspondence from various children in the location are provided for the sponsor.
How do I make contributions?
Contributions of $25 a month, $150 bi-annual, or $300 annual can be made:
Online: Click on Give Now or Give to this Project. Use your child’s ID# in the search window to find your child.
U.S. Mail: Send check or money order (earmarked with your child’s ID number) to:

Can I send my child additional monetary gifts?
Yes. Monetary gifts of $25 or less are acceptable for a child’s birthday or other special occasion. Please be sure to designate the gift separate from your monthly contribution. For example: A $35 contribution should be earmarked: $25 – child’s ID# Support, $10 – child’s ID# Gift.
Christmas Spirit: Monetary gifts sent for Christmas are added to People to People’s Christmas Spirit campaign. The Christmas Spirit campaign raises funds to provide all the children in the sponsorship program with a Christmas party, a special gift and an opportunity to hear the story of Christ’s birth.
