Here are some commonly asked questions about sponsorship:
What does a child receive from child sponsorship?
Monthly support allows us to feed, clothe, house, and educate all the children at the Home.
How much does it cost?
Only $35 per month, slightly more than $1 a day!
Partial Sponsorship - $35 at this level you will be a partial sponsor of a child, and part of a team of six people.
Full Sponsorship - $200 at this level you will be fully sponsoring a child, providing his or her needs for a month.
How do I go about sponsoring a child?
Very simple! If you know the child you would like to sponsor or just want to sign up to give you can follow this link --> SPONSOR TODAY!
We will confirm your sponsorship via email and mail you a sponsorship packet for the child you choose.
How do I pay for it?
We'll provide you a safe and secure link to set up easy monthly recurring gifts using your debit or credit card, or with info on where to mail your monthly check.
How long can I sponsor a child?
As long as you'd like! We suggest at least a year.
Can I write to the child?
Yes! The children love to receive letters and it really encourages them. We will provide you with letter writing ideas and tips. The children read their letters over and over.
Will I receive regular updates?
Updates are mailed twice a year and include items such as a personal letter from the child, class picture, individual picture, artwork, and school progress report. Our monthly newsletter will keep you informed of what's going on at the Farm.
Can I send packages or extra gifts to my child?
Many of the children do not receive special gifts or packages. So, we ask sponsors/supporters who would like to, give an extra gift twice a year for the children's birthday party and for the Christmas party. We celebrate all the children's birthdays in June. A special meal is planned for each celebration, and if the funds are available we purchase a small gift for each child.
Can I cancel my sponsorship at any time?
Yes, we understand that circumstances change.
Please notify us so we can make your child available for other sponsors.
Don't wait any longer, make a difference in the life of one of these children at Challenge Farm today!
T.R. and Michelle, one of our sponsors and supporters (since the beginning!), recently visited Challenge Farm, they were touched by what was happening here .
I've always had a desire to go see with my own eyes what exactly is happening at Challenge Farm. September of this year, that desire became a reality. Seeing first-hand what is being accomplished for the children is an eye-opening experience. Nothing can compare with actually being there. The progress that has been made from the very first building to what is there now, is a testimony to God's favor and faithfulness. From the moment my husband, T. R., and I first arrived at Challenge Farm until we left, the love the children and staff have for Cheri and for Jesus touched us deeply. Many times we were moved to tears and couldn't speak because we were so overwhelmed by all we saw. Education is very important and we were able to go into the classrooms and see the great job the teachers are doing. We were able to see how test scores are continually showing improvement. If you are not currently supporting Challenge Farm on a monthly basis or if you are looking for a ministry to support, I strongly encourage you to consider this ministry.
