Why face-to-face?

You may get a chance to meet one of our amazing Children International representatives in your own city! Face-to-face fundraising is a personal way to share information about our life-changing programs in a cost-effective way, which allows us to put more money toward bringing real and lasting change to kids living in poverty.

If you’re interested in becoming a sponsor, but unsure about giving your information to a face-to-face fundraiser — we understand. Here are a few tips to help you spot one of our representatives.

How to identify a CI face-to-face fundraiser
  • Wear an ID card with their name, photo and employee number
  • Wear clothing with our logo prominently displayed
  • Have contact information for their fundraising company and Children International
  • Work in teams of two or more
  • Will never ask you for a cash donation — we only accept credit card or debit card
  • Have a license to fundraise in your city
  • Abide by the AFP Code of Conduct for face-to-face fundraising
  • Should you decide to sponsor, you’ll be provided with email  confirmation

Please know that we take protecting your personal and financial information very seriously. Any data you share is confidential, and all of our fundraising partners are compliant with Payment Card Industry regulations for financial data security and meet industry regulations.

“Knowing I have the ability to make life better for somebody else is a powerful thing. ‘I helped them do that. I actually made a difference.’ It’s an amazing feeling.”
