Compassion surpassed $1 billion in revenue in fiscal year 2021. We carefully govern our spending so that, from 1952 to date, Compassion’s one-to-one sponsorship has touched the lives of more than 4.2 million children. In 2021, our supporters enabled us to serve 2.2 million children registered in our program across 7,981 Frontline Church Partners. Of those children, 1.9 million were linked with caring sponsors.

As a Christ-centered charitable organization, we strive to be good stewards of the resources you entrust to us. Our financial accountability, reporting processes, and results around the globe are consistently commended. We are a founding member of the Evangelical Council for Financial Accountability and meet the standards of the Better Business Bureau Wise Giving Alliance.

With God’s blessing and your ongoing support, we will continue working to release as many children as possible from poverty in Jesus’ name.

We are publishing a new Accountability Report, beginning this year. The Accountability Report describes the work of Compassion in a way that provides greater transparency to the way we operate and deliver impact as a ministry. We believe this will be a more complete response to our stakeholder needs, along with the continued publication of our audited financial statements.
