How long should my sponsorship last?

RPC sponsorship offers you the opportunity to stay with a child for a number of years, usually through the school year in which the child reaches the age of 18. While we hope that you will be able to continue in your support of your sponsored child until he or she completes the RPC program, we recognize that sponsors’ circumstances sometimes change. You may discontinue your sponsorship at any time. 

Please understand that a sponsored child’s circumstances may change, too. For example, sometimes families move beyond the reach of RPC’s program and children have to leave RPC sponsorship.
We will inform you as quickly as possible if any such circumstance affects the child you sponsor, and we’ll offer you the opportunity to support another child in need of your help.
