Child Sponsorship

Child Sponsorship

Countless children are hungry and sick. They have nowhere to sleep and they cannot go to school.

With your financial support, The Salvation Army can help care for children in need. You can help children develop into healthy, happy, fulfilled young people.

Centre sponsorship

Centre sponsorship focuses on the needs of many children through programmes targeted at specific areas of need within each community. We have a range of programmes available.

What you need to know

  • Once we’ve received your application a welcome pack will be sent with a photo, history sheet and information about the centre you are sponsoring.
  • The money you donate goes straight to the centre you sponsor. (The Salvation Army keeps 6% towards the costs of administration).
  • You’ll receive mail from the centre a couple of times a year and are welcome to write to them.
  • If you said ‘yes’ to automatic payments on your application form, payments will be made from your account at the requested interval.

Your donation

94% of your donation is sent overseas. The 6% administrative fee retained partly covers the costs of postage, bank charges and printing. All other expenses are covered by The Salvation Army.

We would prefer if you could commit to sponsorship for a minimum of one year. We understand that circumstances for sponsors may change. If you find you are unable to continue at any time please contact us to discuss your options.

You can make a difference

With a regular commitment of $30 per month, thats around $1 a day. Fill out our contact form or download the sponsorship application form below:
