Are my donations tax-deductible?
Children of God is a 501(c)(3) public charity, and all donations are tax-deductible.

How do I get a tax receipt?
We will mail a receipt that you can use for tax purposes.

What is the most cost-effective way to give?
Gifts by check or through your bank’s bill payer have the cheapest processing costs. Next is an electronic gift that directly debits your checking or savings account. Debit and credit cards charge the highest processing fees, but we are sincerely grateful for whatever is the best way for you to make contributions.

Who do I make the check out to, and where should I mail it?
Please make checks out to Children of God … and mail to our headquarters:

8315 Morro Rd Suite 201
Atascadero, CA  93422

How do I set up a direct debit of my checking or savings account?
Call our office in California @ (805) 464-3499 with the routing number and account number from your check, or mail a voided check to our office with a note telling us what your gift is for and the frequency of your gift (one-time, monthly, quarterly).

How does your Program Sponsorship benefit the children in Lusaka?
Your donation will help meet the physical, educational, social, and spiritual needs of your child. Your donation will go into our sponsorship fund and your child will receive the benefits of their program through your contribution. Every child in our program is assigned multiple sponsors to meet all of their needs.

Here are a few benefits for your consideration:

  • $39 a month (BLOOM) … helps cover the cost for one of our children to go to school, along with providing them with at least one hot meal a day.
  • $60 a month (FLOURISH) … will help us build & develop our Christ-centered trade school, as we come alongside vulnerable kids to give them tools and an eternal purpose for a sustainable future.
  • $99 a month (TRIUMPH) covers both Bloom & Flourish, and it’s truly our heart & mission to help each one of these precious Children of God at a very young age who are in crisis, all the way through until they are prepared to launch into adulthood.

Does the $39 a month go directly to my child?
Your donation will go into our sponsorship fund and your child will receive the benefits of the over-all program through your contributions.
