50% or 869 children = $2,172.50 per month
75% or 1304 children = $3,260.00 per month
100% or 1739 children = $4,347.50 per month
(*Based on 2010 census data: 1739 children under five years of age in Smyth County, Virginia)
There is a donation level to fit every budget:
– $30 sponsors a child for one year.
– $150 sponsors a child for the entire time they receive books (age 0-5.)
