GET INVOLVED WITH CROSS TODAY!
Cross International is an interdenominational Christian relief and development charity based in South Florida that provides food, shelter, education, medical care, and emergency aid to the poorest of the poor in more than 30 countries around the world.
Cross International values every gift and pledges to be accountable for each one. We direct every donation to its intended project, provide honest and accurate reports to our donors, and keep overhead costs to an industry low. We handle funds with utmost integrity and hold our ministry partners in the field to the same high standards:
We ask each overseas ministry to document its costs and the impact of its outreach, such as the number of patients treated or children fed. We make periodic visits — including unannounced ones — to confirm that a project is carried out as promised. We gain candid insight by talking to people the ministry has helped; to its workers and volunteers; to other charities who support the ministry, as well as to local leaders. Cross nurtures long-term partnerships with those ministries who sincerely serve the poor as a Christian community and prove themselves trustworthy with the funds and goods we provide.
Our detailed level of accountability to donors has been recognized by the industry publication Chronicle of Philanthropy; our credibility has been confirmed by the Better Business Bureau; and our strong ethical practices have earned us ongoing accreditation by the Evangelical Council for Financial Accountability.
