If you sponsor a COTN child in the Village Partnership Program (including the I Love Baseball Program), there are some
important changes coming to your sponsorship this spring. We know how much you love your sponsored child, and we’re so
grateful for your continued partnership.
After talking with our in-country staff in February and March 2018, it became apparent that the cost of food, education, medical care, and resources
has been rising in the countries we serve. As a result, we need to make a modest increase in the monthly investment for sponsoring a child in
order to continue meeting the children’s physical, educational, emotional, and spiritual needs.
Starting May 1, the monthly investment for sponsoring a child in the Village Partnership Program will change from $32 to $36 a month,
so we can continue providing the children with a high level of care. Annual donations will change from $384 to $432.
If you sponsor a Village Partnership Program child and you give by automatic withdrawal, you don’t need to change anything. Your
sponsorship payments will automatically update starting in May 2018. If you give by check, we ask that you please make this change beginning
with your May 2018 donation.
You should receive a letter in the mail about this change soon. If you have any concerns or questions, or if this change presents any challenge for you or
your family, please call us at 360-698-7227 or email firstname.lastname@example.org before April 24.
How much of my monthly donation goes to the children?
Eighty-five percent of your sponsorship donation goes directly to help the children. COTN is a 4-star rated organization on
Charity Navigator and we strive to be the best possible stewards of your donations.
Can I stay at $32 per month?
Yes. Please call us at 360-698-7227 or email email@example.com before April 24.

Thank you for your continued partnership, prayers, and understanding as we seek to do what is best for the children. Your love and compassion
have brought so much joy to your child’s life!
