Payment Methods

Please see the instructions below to assist you with making a charitable gift to DCI through your preferred payment method. You can give to DCI by check or money order, through an automatic bank check, or online by credit card or Paypal.

Donate Online (Credit Card or Paypal):

You can sponsor a child, sponsor an orphan, sponsor eye care, or choose from our many other gifts online by visiting http://mydci.distressedchildren.org. MyDCI allows you to give securely with any major credit card.

Benefits of MyDCI:

  • Choose a child or patient to sponsor yourself
  • Easy recurring monthly or annual renewal for your sponsored child
  • Track your sponsored child’s progress and your donations

*Note: even if you sponsor a child using a different payment method, you’ll still receive a MyDCI account where you can monitor your donations, as long as you provide a valid email address.
Please see our Help Center if you have any issues donating online!

Give by Check or Money Order:

If you would like to make a gift by check or money order, please print and complete DCI’s donation form and include it with your gift. Note: you must provide a valid email address to receive a tax receipt for your gift. DCI does not send acknowledgement or receipts for gifts by surface mail.

Please make your check or money order payable to Distressed Children & Infants International or DCI and send it to the following address:

Distressed Children & Infants International (DCI)
50 Church Street, 5th Floor, Harvard Square, Cambridge, MA 02138, USA

Give by Automatic Bank Check (recurring gift):

Whether you are a child sponsor or you make an annual contribution to DCI’s General Fund, you may choose to have your contribution sent automatically in smaller installments throughout the year.Unlike credit card & PayPal donations, there is no associated fee for DCI, so 100% of your gift will go to helping children!

You just need to visit your bank branch and tell a representative you’d like to set up an automatic bill payment. They will need the following information:

1. Name and address of our organization:
Distressed Children & Infants International
50 Church Street, 5th Floor, Harvard Square, Cambridge, MA 02138, USA
2. Desired amount and frequency of your payment. For example, if you are sponsoring a child, you may wish to give $15 monthly, or $90 every six months. If you make a general donation of $100 each year, you may choose to give $25 quarterly.

If you use online banking, you may also be able to set up a recurring gift to DCI online. Visit your bank’s
website for details.

Benefits of Recurring Gifts:

Many DCI donors are already benefiting from the convenience of automatic giving and are providing extra benefits to DCI in the process. If you have not already contributed for this year and/or would prefer the flexibility and convenience of an automatic payment option, consider using the recurring bank check method described above or if you already sponsor a child and want to set up online recurring payments give us an email atc Asahi@distressedchildren.org. Please note that new sponsorships made online are always recurring donations.Once the payment system is set up, your gift will be sent automatically on your behalf and you won’t need to worry about making your annual gift/ sponsorship renewal. You will receive a confirmation and tax receipt email from DCI after your gift is received.

  • No hassle or cost for you
  • No need to remember to make your gift: the online payment system will renew your sponsorship exactly one year from when it is set up and your bank will automatically send your contribution on your specified date
  • Easy to set up: you only need to visit your bank and provide the name and address of our organization to set up a recurring payment and all sponsorships are automatically recurring donations. If you already sponsor a child and want to set up a recurring donation for renewal please email us at Asahi@distressedchildren.org
  • In addition to all the benefits above, your recurring gift makes it easier for DCI to budget and conduct fundraising activities, ensuring that we maximize our support to underprivileged children and families.
