We assign the highest reasonable amount of available resources to the direct benefits of sponsored friends, which is why more than 93 percent of our expenses go toward program support.
Here are some ways sponsors and supporters can help us keep our overhead low:
1) Use our Automatic Payment Plan.
Sponsorship contributions made through CFCA’s Automatic Payment Plan are safe, secure and reduce our costs.
Printing, postage costs and bank fees continue to increase and currently average 84 cents for each sponsorship payment made by check. In contrast, the cost for an automatic bank withdrawal is less than 3 cents.
Automatic payment also helps sponsors to:
- Save on postage and the time it takes to mail their contribution.
- Never miss a payment ñ their contribution is automatically processed each month.
- Reduce paperwork ñ electronic payment is environmentally friendly.
