Student Sponsorship

Why become a sponsor?

Your gift of $35 each month to Grace Emmanuel School makes it possible for a student to receive a Christian education from a devoted and caring staff and hope for a future free from poverty. Your sacrifice lifts the burden of unaffordable tuition off your student’s family as they fight to provide for his/her other needs, and accomplishes so much more.

As a sponsor, you have the opportunity to build a meaningful, godparent-type relationship with your student through letters and prayers and even visits to Haiti.

For more information about the student sponsorship program, see frequently asked questions & read about the impacts of sponsorship.If you have additional questions, JiHM staff will be happy to talk to you. Contact Kristi at or 260-302-JIHM.
