For just $36 a month, you can help change someone's life.
Inflation in the countries where we work and the eroding purchasing power of sponsorship dollars make it hard to deliver a consistent level of assistance to families around the world. An increase of a few dollars in your monthly contribution will help us keep benefits strong for all people in the sponsorship program, including your sponsored friend, regardless of variations in local economies. With your support, sponsored friends and families in Unbound programs can meet their daily needs and go on to achieve great things.

Unbound's sponsorship program offers assistance to people living with varying degrees of physical and mental disabilities. Often, people with special needs who live in poverty have little or no access to health and rehabilitation services. To preserve the privacy of our sponsored members, we do not share details about their disabilities online. If you would like to learn more about sponsoring someone with special needs, contact our Sponsor Services team at 1.800.875.6564 Monday through Friday 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Central time.
Unbound is committed to seeing our sponsored children complete their educations – whether they are in high school, vocational school, or university. We started the Finish Line program for young adults who are still studying and need the encouragement and support of a sponsor to help them reach their full potential. Unbound staff helps each student define an education plan, and students are encouraged to keep their sponsors updated on their progress.
When you sponsor a child through Unbound, you help an entire family start on a path out of poverty.
Families of sponsored children work with our staff to set goals and choose the benefits that will help their kids most. Your sponsorship dollars help them put food on the table, fix a leaky roof, or buy new shoes for school.
Sponsorship also means that children have a better chance of starting and staying in school.
You can nurture a child’s potential and help a family thrive. Become a sponsor today!
For teens living in poverty, education is often a luxury.
Many times, those who are lucky enough to go to school have to drop out at a young age to help provide for their families.
But when you sponsor a young adult, you create an opportunity to break that cycle.
And because Unbound stays with students as long as they are working to complete their education, sponsored teens have the chance to finish high school, trade school or college. Some even obtain professional and graduate degrees.
Invest in the future leaders of our world. Sponsor a student!
As the only major sponsorship organization that offers sponsorship opportunities for seniors, we value the collective wisdom and experience that elders offer their communities and the world.
