How To Sponsor


STEP 1: SELECT A STUDENT

If you wish to sponsor a specific child, please choose one here. E-mail us at enquiries@mariacristinafoundation.org or marketing@mariacristinafoundation.org to inform us of your choice and we can give you more information on the student you have selected. 

If you wish to make a generic donation towards the payment of school fees, please mark ‘school fees’ as the reference on your transfer. 


STEP 2: MAKE A DIRECT TRANSFER TO OUR BANK ACCOUNT OR DONATE ONLINE

The fastest way to make a donation is to make an online payment. You can also send the funds to our UK or Portuguese bank accounts or send us a cheque via post. We cannot accept cash donations to remain transparent and accountable.  

The fees per student for 2016 are:

Grade 1-8: $1,000
Grade 9-10: $1,250
Grade 11-12: $1,500


STEP 3: FOLLOW UP ON YOUR CHILD'S PROGRESS

We encourage sponsors to visit Dhaka and meet the children they sponsor. You will receive an annual update on how your sponsored child has performed academically. You will receive a reminder to deposit the next year’s fees a month before the next academic year begins so we can ensure that there is no disruption in the child’s education.

Sponsoring a child is a long-term commitment. We understand that circumstances change and financial commitments may no longer be viable. If this happens, please advise as us soon as possible so we can find another sponsor and continue education uninterrupted for the children.

During your sponsorship term you may also choose to consider one of the many other ways you can contribute to the child’s future such as food/rent support for the family.
