By now, you may have heard that we are planning to increase our child sponsorship rates in the U.S. This is true.
We are raising our child sponsorship rate to $38 per month beginning June 1, 2009 for all new sponsorships, and August 1 for existing sponsors.
A rate increase is needed because our church partners in the countries we serve are struggling to provide our children with the services they need. This is due, in part, to the increasing inflation rate around the world and the global economic crisis.
Since 2005, the purchasing power of church partners in their own countries has gone down by an average of 19.22 percent because of the weakened dollar.
