sending a gift if you sponsor a child in the United states

OPTION 1: Additional Money Gifts (Preferred method)

If you wish to send a Holiday gift to your sponsored child(ren) by check/mail, please be sure it reaches our office at P.O. Box 72848, North Chesterfield, VA 23235 no later than October 31, 2021. 

There are no minimum or maximum amount restrictions for contributions made by check, via the website, or over the phone, and the needs of the child you sponsor will be met first and foremost. This method of giving (instead of sending a package to the school) is preferred for our coordinators’ convenience.

OPTION 2: Sending a Package to a Child (U.S. children only)
If you wish to send a package to your sponsored child, please make sure the package arrives at the child’s school/project site by November 30, 2021. 

Please do not send packages to our North Chesterfield headquarters. All packages should be mailed directly to the address provided in your trifold of the child you sponsor.

Additional Money Gifts
If you wish to send an additional money gift to a child, please be sure it reaches us at P.O. Box 72848, North Chesterfield, VA 23235 no later than October 31, 2021.

There are no minimum or maximum amount restrictions for these contributions, and the needs of the child you sponsor will be met first and foremost.

Due to high customs duties and the likelihood of loss, we do not recommend sending packages to our program sites outside of the U.S.
