The Sponsorship Fund

The Sponsorship Fund

The Sponsorship Fund provides help to vulnerable children and orphanages with extra needs. You may not want to sponsor an individual child, but you can help an entire children's home when you give any amount to this fund. Recurring donations can provide a significant impact.

“We are overwhelmed by your kind support. Children are growing healthy and stronger because of the extra nutritious food like milk and eggs that your are providing through The Sponsorship Fund.” – Uttam Kumar Orphanage Administrator

An orphanage is a large family. Can you imagine the responsibility of raising 75-100 children? The orphanages we support always need extra funding for repairs and standard of living upgrades, additional staff for running the orphanage, nutrition, children’s medical expenses and educational expenses. Your donation to the sponsorship fund gives the added assurance that the children will have a happy and healthy childhood and solid education. Experience the joy of helping all the children in an orphanage who really need your support.

You can give any amount either recurring or one time.



World’s Children is committed to honoring your stated preferences for donations.
In some circumstances, such as overfunding of a project, your contribution will be used
for the greatest current need of vulnerable children.

Board Member

Loretta met David Purviance on a chance trip in 2006, while seeking to be of service to the vulnerable children in India.  Since then, Loretta has been a longtime supporter of World’s Children as a donor, sponsor, and previous Board member.  She had the wonderful opportunity to return to India twice to visit several World’s Children orphanages, and even identified the Happy Home orphanage and petitioned to bring it into the WC family. Loretta raised funds to build a well at Happy Home, where it now has clean water for all the children and staff.

Loretta currently works with the Los Angeles County Department of Health Services as the Program Manager for the six Medical Hubs – the child abuse evaluation clinics for the County. She also serves as the Program Manager for the County’s Gender Health Program, serving patients seeking gender-affirming care in a safe environment.  Before her work with Los Angeles County, Loretta spent many years serving non-profit organizations in CA and in MN, her last as the Executive Director of a statewide non-profit in MN. She has a long history of volunteer work including Board Member and Board Chair service, grant writing and fundraising experience, program development, and creative leadership, all serving our most vulnerable and disenfranchised populations.

Loretta holds a Bachelor of Science in Human Services, a Master’s degree in Spiritual Psychology, and a Master’s degree in Organizational Leadership.  She lives in Los Angeles County with her partner, Myck, and their rescue kitties, Scooter and Thunder.
