What is an Educational Sponsorship?
Pledging your support through an Educational Sponsorship means you are taking action and taking responsibility. The Educational Sponsorships are the most important support for the projects which are implemented by the Child and Family Foundation Association. By becoming a Sponsor you show that you believe in a better future for children, adolescents and families in need.
€1 per day
With just €1 per day, that's just €30 per month, you can provide long-term, sustainable support for our work - whether its an education or aid project. For us, a Sponsor isn't just an important supporter; they are an active ambassador and loyal follower of our projects.
How are Educational Sponsorships used?
Educational Sponsorships aren't linked to just one child or one person; instead they act as additional financial support for our education and aid projects around the world. Through the generated financial assistance we can further develop existing projects, as well as plan and implement new projects.
Sponsors are people with a sense of responsibility and conviction. As a Sponsor you receive regular updates and a yearly report to keep you informed about the latest developments on our projects.
How can I become a Sponsor?
There are two different ways to sign up for a Sponsorship:
Online - in your personal profile under www.lyoness.com/educationalsponsorship
or via the Folder from our Download area.
