Child Sponsorship: Options if you're thinking of moving on from this model

Child sponsorship was one of the most innovative marketing and fundraising models of its time. Established in the 1930s, it has been and still is a staple model for many non-profits fundraising for children and young people. Whilst being a successful way of raising money for some charities, some find it administratively burdensome and are beginning to question the ethics surrounding this style of fundraising. Join us to learn about the potential issues surrounding this approach, and to hear about sustainable ways of moving away from this model. We also discuss the wider context of the child sponsorship model and hear from small NGOs who have successfully transitioned.
