Note: All Starfish Ministries sponsorship funds go directly to meeting the specific needs they were given for. Administrative costs are funded separately.
Starfish Ministries School Sponsorships
What does it cost to sponsor a student in a Starfish Ministries School?
It costs $30.00 per month to sponsor a grade school student.
It costs $75 per month to sponsor a high school student.
It costs $100 per month to sponsor a University/seminary student.

It covers all of the educational costs (teacher salaries, school supplies, etc.) for the sponsored students as well as for approximately three of his or her classmates. It also buys the materials for the school uniforms (again, for the student and approximately three classmates). And finally, it pays for five meals each week for those students.

Family and Widow Sponsorship
From time to time, Starfish Ministries’ Haitian leadership identifies families in desperate need of short- (and sometime long-) term support. An example of short-term support is a teacher in one of the Starfish Ministries schools whose house was lost in a fire. Starfish Ministries helped this family rebuild and supported them through this difficult time. Examples of long-term ongoing support include widows or the elderly couple in Beaudois we wrote about in our September 2011 Newsletter.
These sponsorships are typically $50 or $100 per month for a family or $20 per month for a widow. They can be for a set time or indefinite. If you are interested in helping meet these needs, send us an email today with your name, address, phone number along with the amount you’d like to sponsor. Let us know, too, if there is a specific amount of time you’d like your sponsorship to continue.
