Join the Unbound community

Founded in 1981 by lay Catholics acting on the Gospel call to walk in solidarity with the poor, Unbound challenges poverty by working with people of diverse faiths in Latin America, Asia and Africa.

When you sponsor a child or elder through Unbound, you partner with a family living in poverty and invest in personalized benefits that help them work toward self-sufficiency and fulfilling their desired potential.

Best of all, 93.1% of the money we spend goes to the people you sponsor and the programs that serve them. That’s one of the highest percentages in the industry.

It's this intimate, person-to-person interaction that allows a heart to be opened. This is a powerful opportunity Unbound offers to each one of us, and it's an opportunity that takes place one person at a time.
— Jean Abreu, Unbound sponsor

From the beginning, Unbound’s sponsorship program has been grounded in the principles of Catholic social teaching, in particular the essential dignity of every human person and the preferential option for the poor and vulnerable.
