How do I become a child or program sponsor?
Becoming a child sponsor is a fairly simple process. Visit our Programs & You or our Child Sponsorship page and select your program or child. Click on the red “Sponsor” button and you will be taken to PayPal for secure checkout. From the PayPal page you may use your existing PayPal account to begin monthly recurring donations, or you may use a credit card by scrolling to the heading that says “Don’t have a PayPal account?” and clicking “continue.” That’s all there is to it. PayPal will lead you through the account setup process and return you to ByGraceTrust.org when you are finished.
You may also set up auto-payment through your bank, or mail a check to: ByGrace Trust, P.O. Box 1631, LaMirada, Ca. 90637.
How are the child sponsorship funds used?
Your monthly support and one time donations for child sponsorship cover educational, nutritional, medical, and spiritual expenses. Donations not only benefit the child you are sponsoring, but also the other children at ByGrace Children’s Home.
Is my donation tax-deductible?
Yes! You will receive a receipt for your donations before taxes are due.
What is the difference between ByGrace Children’s Home and ByGrace Trust?
ByGrace Trust is the 501 c(3) non-profit organization started in the United States to support the efforts and mission of ByGrace Children’s Home in Kenya. ByGrace Children’s Home in Kenya has their own board of directors that the ByGrace Trust board interacts with.
ByGrace Trust desires that each supporter be able to trust them with their finances; thus they have created a spreadsheet reflecting their expenses for the year and where your donations were stewarded.
It should also be noted that 100% of your donation goes to provisions for the child. Our Administrative funds come from a separate donation section and all our staff and board members are volunteers. ByGrace desires for their donors to feel that 100% of their support goes directly toward the empowerment of the child.
