Frequently asked questions about sponsoring a student or class
How does student/class sponsorship work?
Student sponsorship with the CCCD is such a rewarding experience. It is not often that you are able to touch a life in such a tangible way. Sponsoring a child through CCCD will provide education, lodging, and meals for a child in need. Your monthly gift will allow you to invest in their physical well being, and most importantly, their spiritual well being. Each child receives instruction in Bible and will be taught about God's plan of salvation. Our goal is to secure 10 sponsors per student to help us cover our annual operating expenses (education, room/board, meals, clothing, misc) for your sponsor child.
Can I pick my student or class?
Yes! You can review all of our available children under the "Students" tab at the top of the website. Then just let us know the name of the child on the online donation page. If you prefer to mail in your request, just let us know the name of the child when you mail in your first payment.

How do I sign up?
You can sign up for sponsorship two different ways, online or through our office.
- To sign up online: Click the "Sponsor a Child" button on this page, which will direct you to our online donation page. After you enter your personal and payment information, simply choose which campus your desired child attends and put the child's name in the Comment box. If you prefer to sponsor a child with the greatest need, then all you need to do is write "child with greatest need" in the Comment box.
- To sign up through our office: Call 616-748-6020 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and speak to one of our sponsorship coordinators. Let us know which child you would like to sponsor and we will get you started.
What will I receive when I sign up?
1-2 weeks after signing up, you will receive a sponsorship packet in the mail. This packet will include a portfolio with your child's picture and basic information on how to write to your sponsored child. Then, throughout the course of the year, you will receive correspondence from your child!
Will I get to know my sponsor student or class?
Yes! We encourage all of our sponsors to actively communicate with their sponsored student(s). We desire personal bonds to form between you and your child/class. The children will respond to your letters and also send special letters to you throughout the year.
