Your gift to our 2020 Annual Fund Drive will have a big impact in our global fight against poverty. You can activate an entire year of life-changing work! Please, help us address both urgent needs and long-term projects to uplift children, families and entire communities. Join us in this critical mission of mercy for the glory of Jesus Christ!
Up to 60 million people are at risk of falling into extreme poverty in 2020. Your generous support is needed to transform lives with the compassionate heart of Jesus Christ!
Category 5 Hurricane Dorian devastated the Bahamas in 2019 with sustained winds of 185 mph and gusts topping 220 mph. In 24 hours, more than 13,000 families became homeless, and schools, grocery stores and churches were left in shambles.
Cross Catholic Outreach rushed in 540,000 meals and followed up with critical resources such as medicines and hygiene kits. When you renew your support through our 2020 Annual Fund Drive, you will help restore hope and dignity — wherever disaster strikes.
Roughly 9% of the world’s population survives on less than $1.90 per day — and the long-term impact of the COVID-19 pandemic means the situation will continue to grow more desperate. Many of these families simply cannot provide enough food for their children, whose bodies and brains suffer from malnutrition. Without early intervention, these children will suffer their entire lives — if they manage to survive at all.
Cross Catholic Outreach responded to this critical need by shipping 31.3 million Vitafood meals to hungry families last year. But at this very moment, a hungry child somewhere in the developing world is praying for their next meal. You can help answer that cry for help.
Gift-giving is one of the ways Catholics around the world celebrate the birth of Christ. But in developing countries, many children have never received a Christmas present. Last year, Catholics united to bless nearly 76,000 children with a Box of Joy — filled with toys, school supplies, hygiene items, a rosary and the Story of Jesus in their own language.
Box of Joy is more than a present — it brings the hope of Christ to children all over the world!
Giving monthly is a small way to have a big impact. Your regular support empowers our ministry to respond to urgent needs and fulfill our long-term projects around the world.

Our mission is to mobilize the global Catholic Church to transform the poor and their communities materially and spiritually for the glory of Jesus Christ. Your gift empowers us to serve the poorest of the poor by channeling life-changing aid through an international network of dioceses, parishes and Catholic missionaries. This cost-effective approach helps break the cycle of poverty and advance Catholic evangelization.
Proceeds from this campaign will be used to cover any expenditures incurred through June 30, 2021, the close of our ministry’s new fiscal year. In the event that more funds are raised than needed to fully fund the project, the excess funds, if any, will be used to meet the most urgent needs of the ministry.
