Can I provide additional educational assistance to my sponsored child?

Ask Sponsor ServicesQ. I understand that the cost of education sometimes exceeds what my monthly sponsorship can provide. What options do I have to provide additional assistance for my sponsored child as he or she gets older?

A. As more sponsored children pursue higher education and costs for education continue to rise, our projects find it increasingly difficult to stretch sponsorship dollars to cover higher education costs.

For sponsors who have the means and desire to provide additional assistance, we can inquire at the project whether your child requires additional assistance beyond what sponsorship provides.

It helps us to know if you are interested in providing a modest incremental amount or if you want to help fund higher education or a degree. If you are interested in providing additional educational assistance, please call our Sponsor Services team at (800) 875-6564 or (913) 384-6500 or email
