> Choose a Gift from Our Gift Catalog

You can sponsor a child, sponsor an orphan, sponsor eye care, or choose from our many other gifts right here from our website. You can give securely with any credit card using Stripe or check out using PayPal.

Benefits of Sponsoring Online:

  • Choose a child or patient to sponsor yourself
  • Track your sponsored child’s progress with field reports added two times per year*

*Note: even if you sponsor a child using a different payment method, you’ll still receive a MyDCI account where you can monitor your sponsored child’s progress, as long as you provide a valid email address.

> Make a Recurring Sponsorship Gift with PayPal

DCI offers an easy recurring gift option for child sponsorship using PayPal. You can choose to make your recurring sponsorship gift monthly, every 3 months, every 6 months, or yearly. You will be directed to PayPal.com to make your gift. You can make your gift using your PayPal account, or a credit/debit card if you do not have a PayPal account.

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 child sponsorship application 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):

You may choose to have your child sponsorship contribution sent automatically in installments throughout the year. Many DCI donors are already benefiting from the convenience of automatic giving and are providing extra benefits to DCI in the process.

Benefits of Recurring Gifts:

  • Give in any amount, on any schedule: your bank will send a check to DCI in an amount of your choice at regular intervals (i.e. monthly, quarterly, annually, etc.)
  • No hassle or cost for you: your bank will print and mail the check to DCI on your behalf, free of charge
  • No need to remember to make your gift: the 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
  • No cost for DCI: unlike credit card & PayPal donations, there is no associated fee for DCI, so 100% of your gift will go to helping children

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.

How to Set Up a Recurring Gift:

To take advantage of all the benefits above, 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.

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. You will receive a confirmation and tax receipt email from DCI after your gift is received.
