My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for Unbound, Kansas City, KS, USA
Christian Foundation for Children and Aging is an amazing charity. It is a charity to which you truly have to be dedicated and in whose mission you must really believe. Although I occasionally give $10 or $25 donations, most of my donations come from the $30 I give every month. This provides for:
-essential benefits such as food, clothing, home repairs and health care.
-educational needs such as school supplies, uniforms, tuition and other school fees.
-recreational activities and Christmas and birthday celebrations.
-literacy training and livelihood programs for parents.
My sponsor child is able to receive all of these for a relatively low cost on my part.
At least twice a year, I receive a letter from my sponsor child, who lives in Guatemala. I recently received a Christmas card, and well as a letter thanking me for a birthday gift I sent her. She is always very polite and grateful, which makes me feel like I'm actually making a difference in her life. I also receive a photo of her annually.
I know that there are many many more people out there living in poverty than my sponsor child, but CFCA does a great job putting a face and name to a child or elderly person who is living in poverty. This strengthens the connection between the donor and the organization because the donor feels like the organization is doing real work that helps real people. Overall, Christian Foundation for Children and Aging is a charity I would highly recommend.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
the letters, photos, and updates I receive from my sponsor child.
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
try to reduce the monthly fee a little. I know this may not be possible, but, in the past, we have had to cut off our ties with a sponsor child from CFCA because it was too expensive for us at the time.
