The Perception of Giving

A former sponsored child is grateful for the opportunity to reach her dreams

When Danielle* was a sponsored child with Children Incorporated, she dreamed of going to college – but her family couldn’t afford it. So before she graduated from high school, with the help of our volunteer coordinator at her school in Kentucky, Danielle applied for assistance from our Higher Education Fund. Thankfully, because of our wonderful donors and supporters, we had the funds available to grant Danielle’s request for support; and she went on to pursue […]

Praise from Our Coordinators

Our volunteer coordinators in the United States share their stories of gratitude for our programs

Achieving Their Dreams

Our Higher Education Fund gives young adults the chance to receive an education beyond high school

The purpose of our Higher Education Fund is to assist young people enrolled in our sponsorship program with financial support so that they can attend college, university, or certification courses once they graduate from high school.

One woman from Warfield, Kentucky found a way to change that this summer. Denise Stepp, who serves jointly as the coordinator for the Warfield Elementary School Family Resource Center and as a volunteer coordinator for Children Incorporated’s child sponsorship program, established a […]
