Uganda Sponsorship Program
What happens if I cannot continue
to support my student?
Although sponsorship is designed to be a lengthy commitment which provides ongoing support, sponsors may discontinue contributions at any time. In this situation, donors are asked to notify the Notre Dame in Uganda Sponsorship Program Office as soon as possible so that a new benefactor can be found.
How often should I plan to make payments?
Sponsorship payments, either by check or credit card, can be made annually, semiannually, quarterly or monthly. Semiannual or annual payments reduce processing costs, so these are appreciated. Each sponsor receives a pledge coupon book. Matching gifts from employers are also welcome!
Will my student write to me?
Within the first few months, sponsors receive a letter of introduction, with additional correspondence from the student for Christmas and Easter. Postal irregularities may cause delays, but efforts will be made to maintain good communication.
May I write to my student?
Sponsors are encouraged to write to their students. All letters are sent through the Uganda Sponsorship Coordinator.
