We are a Catholic ministry that partners with bishops, priests, religious and lay workers to provide food, water & health, housing, kids & education, women & girls, disaster relief, farming & loans opportunities and the love of our Lord Jesus Christ to the poor and vulnerable in over 30 countries around the world.

We meticulously honor the intent of our donors. All proceeds are restricted for the specific project for which they are raised, along with the fundraising and administrative expenses of that project. For each dollar you earmark for a specific project, about 83 cents goes directly to the project, while the remaining 17 cents goes to fundraising and administrative expenses for that project. Out of the combined total of all cash and material goods donated to Cross Catholic Outreach in a typical year, about 95% goes directly to programs that help the poor and vulnerable.

Donations from this campaign will be used to cover any expenditures for this project incurred through June 30, 2025, the close of our ministry’s 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.
