Sponsoring a child will cover the cost of their annual school tuition.

Frequently Asked Questions

How much does it cost to sponsor a child?

The basic cost to sponsor a primary school child is $145 a year.  This cost covers their annual school tuition.  Some students may also need additional support like uniforms, shoes, etc. (Those items are listed below that child’s name).  If you are willing to take on those additional expenses that is fantastic but not required.  There is also the opportunity to sponsor older students for $35 monthly.


How do I pay?

Payments can be made using a credit or debit card. 


Do I need to commit for more than one year?

No.  While it is our hope that you will want to continue to sponsor your child annually or monthly and build a relationship with the child through high school graduation, there is no requirement that you commit to sponsoring the child for more than one year. There is no limit on monthly sponsorship. You can sponsor for one month or continue on as long as you desire.


Can I correspond with my child?

Yes! We encourage each of our sponsors to write to their child however you are not required to do so. Even if you don’t write, your child will write to you at least four times a year.  A teacher or staff person will help children who have yet to learn how to read and write.  Letters or cards can be sent to your child in care of Janeth Brown at the Fergus Simpson Foundation, 5016 Spedale Court #457, Spring Hill, TN 37174  and she will make sure your child receives it. 


Can I visit my sponsored child?

We will be taking yearly trips to Jamaica.  During these trips, in addition to doing various benevolence and minor construction projects, we will be visiting the various schools we help support and you will have the opportunity to meet your child face to face.


Can I send my child a gift?

To equally love and care for each of the children we serve without showing partiality, we do not allow sponsors to send individual gifts to their sponsored child. It’s not a problem to add stickers or a coloring page with your letter or card, but please refrain from sending any larger items to your child. If you wish to give an additional monetary gift beyond your annual sponsorship donation, the money will be put into a fund to provide for a field trip, party, or other celebration that the whole class can enjoy together. You may also support the foundation as a whole by making a donation through the main donation page.
