Review from Guidestar
February 1, 2011

Catholic Relief Service has been close to my heart my entire life. The organization has been through good an bad but yet come out on top. They truly are an organization that is "Giving Hope to a World of Need". They are always number one in times of crisis staying long after others have gone. The executive team, Board Members and employees are the most down to earth people I have ever met. They have a world of knowledge and use it to their benefit. We are lucky to have people in this world who want to help and not just "go to work".

Thank you Catholic Relief Services for everything you do.

The Great!

They have made wonderful changes I would only say to continue pursuing the ideas of employees and work hard to help those who need it most.

For a number of years now, my wife and I have had $25.00 deducted from our checking account each month to go to CRS. We also give larger amounts to special church collections and directly to CRS; e.g., for earthquake relief and the like. While we are far from being large donors, we are consistent ones because CRS gives the overwhelming amount of funds that it collects to the intended beneficaries and that is a very important fact to us.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

the fact that it gives by far most of the funds it collects to the intended beneficaries which means that its overhead costs are extremely low as compared to other charities and I, therefore, get the most bang out of my donated buck so to speak!

When I donate to Catholic Relief Services I know that my money is going to work to help where it is most needed in the fastest way possible. I fully trust and applaud CRS.

CRS is recognized by its peers as having expertise in emergency response and long term development. In addition to the work most know them for - emergency response in times of tsunamis, earthquakes, war, famine, etc. - they are there for the long haul, helping people develop sources of clean water and safe, secure food supplies; providing access to education to break the cycle of poverty and skills training to help families support themselves. All this, and they do it efficiently - $.92 of every dollar goes directly to aid.

CRS has decades of experience in providing relief and a high percentage of every dollar goes directly to the people in need, not for administrative costs, and the like. The day of the earthquake in Haiti, I went to their website to donate, without being prompted to do so, because I knew they were already on the ground in Haiti and experienced in the needs and culture of the people there.

When I donate to CRS, I know that my money is going where it needs to go. CRS has a 6% overhead and that impresses me. I also know that when they send relief, the people will be trained to do what they need to do and not just go to feel good about helping and end up getting into trouble or in the way of real relief.

How do I know if CRS charity donations are helping Haitians on the ground? My answer from an article I read is as follows:

Catholic Relief Services has been involved in Haiti since 1954. It would be useful to find out what they have accomplished of on-going benefit that has not made the problems there worse. Seemingly, the long-standing efforts of such organizations in Haiti have accomplished little in terms of resiliency, self-sufficiency, and poverty alleviation. Of course, while a single organization cannot be expected to put much of a dent in long-term systemic problems, one hopes that the various aid organizations have been working together toward a common good purpose, have been evaluating their efforts, have adjusted their programs to meet local long term needs, and have checked their religious ideology at the door, in the interests of helping people over the long run.

I am so proud to be able to recommend this great Not for Profit Corporation to any one interested in donating to the efforts taking place in Haiti. Catholic relief services has been on the ground in most 3rd world countries long before a major event takes place such as the recent earthquake. The reason is because they see that not only natural disasters are a reason to assist the poor, but daily living experiences of the poor demand daily assistance, not just once a month, or once a year, or once in a lifetime. How about over 50 years of service in Haiti. Good and faithful servant of God!

Continue to bring God's relief to those who now will suffer immessurable pain due to the earthquake, and their poverty. It does not matter why they are in such poverty so much as that They Are In Such Poverty, and that demands our attention.
