2023 FAQs

  • Do I get to meet my chosen child?
    Yes, you are absolutely able, and encouraged, to meet the child you choose to sponsor! Sponsors are welcome to attend our tutoring sessions, birthday parties, and life experiences. We also have group events planned for sponsors during the year to build connections and relationships. When you sponsor a child you’re not just giving a gift and putting a picture on your fridge (although that is great). When you partner with Eight Waves, you are stepping into a child’s life in a unique way; you become a supporting and encouraging character in the child’s epic God-given storyline and are able to meet with them.
  • Can I contribute to a child’s life without meeting them?
    Absolutely! There is no obligation to meet with the child you are sponsoring.
  • Why is reading at or above grade level important for students?
    The children in the Eight Waves program are all performing below grade level in academics. There is a direct correlation between reading, education, and poverty. The National Institute for Literacy estimates that 43% of adults with very low literacy skills live in poverty. About 70% of adult welfare recipients have lower-level literacy skills on the National Assessment of the Adult Literacy (NAAL).
  • Why are hygiene items considered under crisis intervention?
    The programs most commonly used by low-wage earners to help pay at the grocery store— SNAP and WIC—do not cover hygiene supplies, leaving many of our children without necessities such as floss and toothpaste, laundry detergent, and tampons. Good hygiene is vital because it helps prevent the spreading of germs and infectious diseases.
  • How long is the financial commitment for?
    You choose! Our goal is to maintain a partnership with our sponsors for a minimum of one year.
  • Is there an age requirement to be a sponsor?
    We hope that the whole family can partake in sponsorship and all ages are welcome to join in for volunteering.
  • I would like to volunteer. How do I get started?
    Great! Please email info@eightwaves.org to get more information.
  • Will I be updated on the child that I am sponsoring?
    Yes! We provide a monthly newsletter that provides updates on all that is happening at Eight Waves and the children and families involved.
  • Is my sponsorship tax deductible?
    Yes, all sponsorships are tax-deductible.
  • Why do students need school supplies year-round?
    The high cost of school supplies poses a challenge to many parents and impacts students during back-to-school season and throughout the school year. Backpacks break, books need to be purchased, pencils go missing, which may lead to the students not having a successful academic year. With your support, we supply all the student’s academic needs on an ongoing basis including summer reading material.
  • Are there corporate sponsorship options available?
    Yes, we offer corporate sponsorships as well. Please contact Sara Meyer at 352-255-7350.
  • Can I plan something special just for the child I am sponsoring with my family?
    We follow very strict rules to always protect the child as well as yourself. We do not allow the child you are sponsoring to be invited to attend anything other than what is planned and structured through Eight Waves.
  • Can I provide gifts, treats, and educational items for the child I am sponsoring?
    Yes! Items may be dropped off at the center and are greatly appreciated. A few suggestions our children use are educational games, art, tech, books, sports, craft material, music, and hygiene items.
  • What is Eight Waves?
    Eight Waves provides high-quality care with eight innovative services for under-resourced children, youth, and families through the following programs: Reading Intervention, Mentorship, Life Experiences, Family Stability, Birthday Parties, Books for Babies, Mom’s Mentoring, and Hygiene Help.
