Renew Your DCI Child Sponsorship

Renew with MyDCI

You can renew your child sponsorship online using your MyDCI account.

  1. Log in with your email address at http://mydci.distressedchildren.org
  2. Click ‘MY DCI‘ on the top menu
  3. Click the orange RENEW button below your sponsored child’s photo
  4. Complete the checkout process

Note: renewing through MyDCI requires a full year of sponsorship payment ($180 for Sun Children, $600 for orphan children). We plan to introduce monthly recurring sponsorship to MyDCI in the near future. If you would like to make a recurring sponsorship gift please use the PayPal method below.

Make a Recurring Sponsorship Gift with PayPal

DCI now 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.

Renew by Check or Money Order

When renewing by check or money order, we ask that you make your gift for a full year of sponsorship.
Sun Child Sponsorship: $180 per child, per year
Orphan Sponsorship: $600 per child, per year
If you would like to make a recurring sponsorship gift, please use the PayPal method above or the recurring bank check option below.

Please print and complete DCI’s donation form and include it with your sponsorship gift. 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/blockquote>

Note: you must provide a valid email address to DCI to receive a tax receipt for your gift. DCI does not send acknowledgement or receipts for gifts by surface mail.

Renew by Automatic Bank Check (recurring gift):

You may choose to have your sponsorship gift sent automatically in the form of a recurring bank check.

Benefits of Recurring Gifts:

  • Choose your gift amount and 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 Sun Child Sponsorship, sponsors can choose from the following giving options:
$15 per month (per child)
$45 every 3 months (per child)
$90 every 6 months (per child)
$180 every year (per child)

For Orphan Sponsorship, sponsors can choose from the following giving options:
$50 per month (per child)
$150 every 3 months (per child)
$300 every 6 months (per child)

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.
