How do you talk about Unbound?

People ask us all the time how they can help spread the news about Unbound. We’ve found one of the best ways is by word of mouth, and what better way to share Unbound with your friends and family than through video?

To help inspire you, we’ve created a video of our own staff members as they talk about Unbound.

Watch our video, then create your own. Don’t forget to share it with us on Facebook or Twitter!

Over $100 million sent directly to field in 2013!

By Martin Kraus, CFCA director of finance

CFCA has never had a goal of being big. We want to be good. Our sponsors recognize the good that’s being accomplished with their donations, and they have helped us to grow to a new level this year!

In 2013, CFCA sent over $100 million directly to our projects in the 21 countries where we work. This is the first year in our 32 year history that CFCA has reached this level of direct support to the field.

This funding makes it possible for a sponsored child to stay in school instead of quitting and going to work to support the family. It provides needed medicine, fitness and social activities for an elderly person who otherwise wouldn’t have any help.

These and many other benefits are provided each year by CFCA through the generous donations of our sponsors. In return, our sponsors have the opportunity to develop a personal relationship with the person they are sponsoring.

Sponsors also have the knowledge that CFCA is exercising good stewardship practices by using over 93 percent of our total expenses for program purposes, with only 3 to 4 percent used for fundraising and 3 to 4 percent for administrative needs.

CFCA was founded in 1981 in Kansas City. Since then, CFCA has sent over $1 billion to our projects around the world to help break the bonds of poverty.

Unfolding into the Indian culture brought joy to a group of sponsors.

They traveled to India on an awareness trip and became a part of their sponsored child’s everyday reality. They had a bright smile at the end of each day.

Sponsors explored the lifestyle, cuisine and hospitality of India, and gave CFCA staff and families a chance to present their talents and introduce the sponsors to the best of their reality.
