What is the value of monthly giving?
Monthly gifts are extremely important to Cross Catholic Outreach and to the poor we serve. These dependable contributions allow us to have a greater impact, fund larger projects and serve with more flexibility. For example, monthly givers are the heroes behind many of our disaster relief efforts. Their gifts also allow us to respond to any emergency needs that arise at orphanages, Catholic clinics or parish-run schools. We ask everyone to start a monthly contribution, but we also understand that some may only be able to remain in that program for a time. We respect this and make it easy for you to end or suspend monthly giving at any time, at your preference.
Why give to Cross Catholic Outreach?
Your gift empowers our Catholic ministry to serve the poorest of the poor by channeling life-changing aid through an international network of dioceses, parishes and Catholic missionaries already working in the areas of need. This cost-effective approach to helping the poor breaks the cycle of poverty and advances Catholic evangelization.
