Remove a sponsorship
Sometimes a sponsor decides they need to leave your program for one reason or another. When this happens you need to sever the sponsorship relationship. There are a couple of different ways to do this.
If you just want to sever the sponsorship relationship but keep the sponsor's record you will need to go to the Sponsorships section for your cause.
Next, find the sponsorship you need to sever and click the delete button.
You will get a pop up box asking you to verify that you indeed want to delete the sponsorship. This only deletes (or severs) the sponsorship relationship, it does not delete the child or sponsor profile. All profile information will remain in your database.
Alternatively, if you do not need to keep the sponsor's profile in your database you can delete the sponsor's profile entirely. To do this go to Manage -> Manage Sponsors. Then click the down arrow next to the edit button in the modify column for the sponsor you wish to delete. Once you click the delete button you will be asked to verify that you indeed want to delete the profile. Once the profile is deleted and sponsorships the sponsor had are also deleted.
With either method, once the sponsorship is removed the child (or whatever you are sponsoring) is immediately available for re-sponsorship. If you do not want the child to be made available you will need to set the child as inactive in their profiel.
