How much does it cost?
$50/month for a blind/disabled resident of Chain, $30/month for a non-disabled resident of Chain, $25/month for a local at-risk child.
How is the money used?
The funds help supply housing, food, education, and medical care for all the children, and also support administrative costs.
Does my donation go directly to my child?
No, all funds are pooled and used to help every child supported by the Chain Foundation. This allows children who do not yet have sponsors to receive aid as well.
May I write and visit the child I sponsor?
YES! You are encouraged to do both, and you may send photos or cards. You will receive photos of your child and letters from your child when possible.
May I send gifts?
No gifts, please, as they create inequity among the children. However, you may make an extra donation for a special occasion if you wish. Often, a team from Epiphany will visit. At that time, you may send small gifts to your sponsored child, as the team is able to take along gifs for students not sponsored as well.
Is my donation tax-deductible in the USA?
Yes, your donation is considered a tax-deductible contribution in the USA through the Episcopal Church of the Epiphany. Your gift is used wisely, and every dollar goes far.
