Sponsor / Donate
Keeping a family of 100+ running smoothly is difficult. Each day our cooks prepare over 350 meals. Each day we have 89 children who venture out to 7 different schools in the area from kindergarten to college and anywhere from 15-20 kids who are still in diapers. Each day our laundry lady washes approximately 70 to 80 loads of laundry. Each day this is only made possible by caring people who support us in our work here.
There are many things that happen on a daily basis to ensure that we provide a quality home to our children and it’s the small everyday things that really add up. We can not do it alone! If you are interested in becoming a general sponsor for Door of Faith your contribution will be used for anything from electricity to emergency medical care.
Door of Faith Orphanage has created a home for many children over the years. We cannot do this without your love and support.
The Door of Faith sponsorship program offers a way for people to assist us in caring for our kids. Our program is designed to fulfill three significant needs:
A SENSE OF BELONGING
By becoming a sponsor you can help the child develop just that. It means a great deal to them when they know someone cares for them on the outside. We encourage sponsors to get involved with their child’s life by writing letters, sending birthday and Christmas cards and presents and if possible visiting them. Though it is not required we welcome sponsors to build a personal relationship with their child.
Our program helps in the day to day expenses of caring for these children. Every dollar that comes through the Sponsorship Program directly benefits the kids. We are able to give our children life-altering opportunities such as higher education, three hot meals a day, regular medical attention, and a safe and stable environment to help them develop.
CONFIDENCE IN YOUR IMPACT
Our program provides the sponsor with a great deal of satisfaction. As a sponsor, you can make an impact in the life of a child here at Door of Faith. Very few people that get involved with Door of Faith leave unchanged.
SPONSORS COMMIT TO:
1. A monthly donation of $35 or more.
2. Praying for their child
3. Sending a birthday card or gift
1. A picture and profile of their child
2. Individual updates 2-3 times a year
3. A birthday reminder a month in advance
Like all other donations to Door of Faith, your monthly support is tax deductible.
IF YOUR SPONSORED CHILD LEAVES DOFO
Occasionally, a child is placed back with their parents or adopted. When this happens the sponsor is notified and given the opportunity to sponsor another child or if they would like to they can commit to a general monthly donation which benefits the children as well.

Sponsor a Meal
In order for children to feel safe and secure they need the basics: a warm bed, three meals a day, and lots of hugs. Once their basic needs are met, they are able to focus on what’s really important; being a kid! We want to provide our children with so much more than the bare essentials, but in order to do that, their basic needs must be met first.
One way you can get involved with helping us is the sponsor a meal program. Thanks to the many direct food donations and the creativity of our cooks the average food cost here is about $80 a meal to feed over one hundred children and staff.
If you, your friends, or your church would like to sponsor a meal (or multiple meals) please let us know while making your donation. Your help with this program helps us provide a stable environment for our children.
Sponsor back to school
As you’re aware, the education of our children is an important focus for us. Along with receiving tutoring on site, the children are enrolled in several local schools which are very good. Although the public schools provided by the government are mostly free of charge, we do incur “back to school” expenses for our school-age children.
The required school uniforms, shoes, backpacks, and supplies cost us about $79 per child. Although $79 might not sound like much, we have around 95 school age children and expenses add up quickly. (We care for around 120 children but many aren’t old enough for school yet.)
We’re asking you to consider sponsoring one or more children for a one-time “back to school donation” of $79 each.
As always, we want to thank you for your interest in helping the children here at Door of Faith. Our very large family depends on people like you, and your efforts are directly changing the lives of the children here.
Transportation can be a challenge with any family. With a family our size you can imagine what we go through. With all of the school runs, doctor runs, church trips, soccer games, etc. we REALLY put some miles on our vehicles.
If you have a used van (large or mini), car, truck, etc. you’d like to donate we would put it to good use. We do not re-sell donated vehicles- so you can take the full value as a tax deduction. We will handle all of the paperwork for you. Just let us know and we can help make all the arrangements. If you can drive the vehicle down, great – we’ll get you back to the US. If the vehicle is in Southern California and runs we can coordinate picking it up. (It’s OK with us if it doesn’t pass a smog test.) If the vehicle is farther away still let us know and we’ll see what we can do.
Occasionally, if the situation is right, we will donate a vehicle to one of the many other ministries we work with locally, if that’s the case we will check with you first.
Thank you so much for considering making such a great donation. We continue to be amazed at the way God uses so many people to provide for our home.
