Sponsor-A-Child Program

Through this program, prospective donors can sponsor one or more children with a gift of $5,000 each. The program is also open to half sponsorship at $2,500. Donors are then assigned to a specific student whose progress throughout the year can be measured. Students are asked to write to their sponsor regularly and donor and child are formally introduced at a recognition luncheon held each spring. It is a moving experience when child and donor meet and a fulfilling experience for those who generously give to the program.

The Sponsor A Child program is a wonderful way to help the Mission, and allows a donor to get to know the children of St. Augustine’s. If you would like more information about the Sponsor-A-Child program please contact Kelly Vazquez, Director of Development at St. Augustine Indian Mission at (402)878-2402 or by email at kavazquez@archomaha.org.
