Would you like to sponsor a child at Hope from just £20, 25 Euro or 1,500 Rupees a month? You will know that you are making a real difference to the life of one of our children and, in return, will receive a photo and regular updates on their progress and development.
Please feel free to contact us with any queries you may have about donating to Hope Community Village.
If you decide to become a HOPE sponsor, you may find the following information useful. This regular giving is incredibly helpful for us as it enables us to budget and plan our finances when we have a regular income. We can then focus our fundraising for unforeseen one-off expenses and major projects.
How much will it cost?
Whatever you can afford but we hope for a minimum of £20 per month. Of course, if you would like to pay a little bit more, we would be delighted. Your sponsorship is payable monthly by direct debit. In addition, if you are a U.K. taxpayer, you can gift-aid your sponsorship and make your money go even further.
How long does the sponsorship last?
There is no set time. If you sponsor an individual child, the idea is that you support the child through their formative years to adulthood – until they finish their education and become independent. This means making a fairly long-term commitment to your sponsored child.
However, we know that people’s circumstances change and you should not let any worries about your future ability to sustain your commitment put you off. If for any reason you are unable to continue with your sponsorship, we will understand. Just let us know on email@example.com. When your child becomes independent you may wish to continue to support HOPE Community Village in general or transfer your sponsorship to a new child. It’s up to you!
Who will I be sponsoring?
You can decide to sponsor an individual child. In this case you will receive a photograph and information about your sponsored child. Thereafter you will receive news and updates on the progress of your child. Some of our UK trustees make regular visits to HOPE and would be delighted to bring you extra news and photographs.
If you would prefer not to single out an individual child, you can make your monthly donation to support the work of HOPE Community Village in general. The choice is yours. (See “Becoming a Regular Donor”.)
What will I get in return?
As a sponsor you will get regular news and photographs. You will also get a copy of our annual Newsletter, giving you an update on news and events at HOPE.
But, most of all, you will know that, month in, month out, your contribution is making a very real difference to the lives of the children at HOPE.
We are very proud to say that 100% of all funds raised, whether through sponsorship or donations, goes to Hope Community Village. Not a single penny is claimed in expenses in the UK – everything is done on a voluntary basis.
