CSI continues to impress me! I appreciate the opportunity they gave me to be involved in a small way with a great, ongoing relief work for the volcano victims of Guatemala. I’m especially grateful for their intervention on behalf of those suffering through severe famine in parts of West Africa. Dr. Camra Faulkner’s heartfelt article was a powerful eye-opener to the seriousness of the situation. If not for CSI, I would not have alerted to this hunger crisis. Several months following the devastating hurricanes, it has also been no small encouragement to see them honor their commitment to providing continued support in the Carribean.
Looking to help victims of Hurricane Harvey, I revisited CSI after a long period of not being involved with their work (no fault of their's). The game plan on the website and their disaster relief experience convinced me to make my initial donation for Texas through CSI.
As the recovery was still just beginning, I considered what other options might make my dollars most effective for the people in need. I eventually called CSI and Michelle gave me all the details of their operations in the Harvey-affected region as they prepared to be on the scene ASAP in the wake of Hurricane Irma. My decision was made after hearing about the coordination of these projects and long-term commitment to the impacted areas in different states, etc. I have since made two donations and plan to make another today for the Caribbean!
This small organization continues to show a remarkable ability to make good use of its material and human resources to serve the hurting.
Appreciate how CSI has endeavored to deliver goods/services that are truly needed and not just what is convenient or flashy. A lot of hard work behind the scenes.
Disaster relief and medical missions - reaching out to others.
I have donated to to CSI for years with 100% confidence in their integrity and services. I recommend them to everyone.
With many non profits out there, it can be hard to know who to support. I have tremendous confidence in CSI both as good stewards and in their effectiveness of meeting the desperate needs of so many people.
It's a privilege to have the means to give money where it's needed, but a donor must choose carefully. Some organizations are very top heavy in salaries, which means my hard earned money isn't going to help a cause, but to the income of a high ranking official. I enjoy giving to CSI because I know my dollar puts feet on the ground, food in the stomachs, and medical assistance quickly and efficiently. As long as I can, I hope to continue giving to CSI.
When I give to Compassion Services, I know that the money will be spent on what matters most, PEOPLE...and not just any people, but the people in greatest need. It's always designated and I really enjoy giving money that way. We can't control what happens in our world-disasters, disease, depravity...but we can control how we give to alleviate the pain of these situations. Thanks so much Compassion Services for providing a venue to give!
Consistent, thorough, and caring. I greatly value their integrated physical and spiritual approach to serving communities in need across the globe! Thank you CSI!
Compassion Services International has a very quick response time in both getting aid to disaster scenes and providing reports to the donor family. I feel secure in knowing CSI will use my gifts to actually reach victims with needed relief.

It's often hard for me to determine which charities and non profit groups to donate to. Having been on numerous humanitarian aid trips as an RN to Central American countries and Haiti, I have seen people give to organizations that don't benefit the cause and people to whom they are giving. With Compassion Services International, I can know for certain that they are dedicated to helping others around the world with my donation! Thank you CSI!
CSI was instrumental in the delivery of relief and construction supplies to the Golden Triangle area (Beaumont, Orange, Port Arthur, Texas) in the wake of Hurricane Harvey. This ministry has helped people get back on their feet and headed to recovery in the aftermath of a horrific disaster. Our hats are off to them!
Great non-profit - good communications of what they are doing and the people they are able to help.

While a very small humanitarian organization, CSI has continued to give great "bang for the buck". CSI has been active both in North America and around the globe. They have maintained their focus and mission objectives while realizing they cannot do everything.
Great experience giving to CSI as well as working alongside them.
While in London, England I met a lady from Chile who had worked with CSI during the earthquake relief effort. She expressed to me that one of the most rewarding times of her life was when she was able to work with CSI on the ground directly affecting the lives of those in need.
One of the most important aspects of CSI's operations is how they get people on the ground involved in areas they can assist with. The more people we have involved in a relief effort the greater overall positive effect we can achieve.
When I donate to Compassion, I know my money is really being used to help people. Their disaster response teams are very quick to respond and emails keep donors like me updated on what current needs are. Follow up emails are sent too with pictures and a summary of what the team and donations were able to accomplish. This is truly living out faith and showing Jesus' love to those in need.
Love that this charity focuses on getting resources directly to the people in need, and works with local leaders to identify needs and distribute any resources.
This nonprofit group is not only quick to respond but they enlist the help of very qualified and educated people to handle whatever crisis that they are attending to! I feel confident that my donations are being used very effectively!
Our church has given to/through CSI several times now, over several years. We have found them to be the quickest and most ethical solution in our effort to help our world deal with traumatic events. CSI communicates the need immediately, the progress and then turns around and documents the successes back to us. Victory Church of College Station, Texas loves CSI and will continue to support this very worthy cause.
It has been amazing to watch how God has used CSI to help the many people who have faced tragic events in their lives. I am praying that God will continue to lead this fine organization. I am proud to be part of this giving community of believers.
The staff at CSI is always helpful and answer questions in a timely manner. I can always be assured that my donation money is going where it is supposed to go, it is not being eaten up by corporate salaries and unnecessary expenses. Great people with a great heart and burden to help others!
Compassion Services Intl. is lightning fast in response times. They are excellent with accountability and followup. I know assuredly that when I give money to CSI that it will go to the needs requested and not be diminished by a lot of corporate overhead, etc. I am privileged to work with CSI, the hands and feet of Jesus on the globe today!
It means a lot to me that I can trust them as a donor to make wise decisions with the money I donate. Not every nonprofit is as trustworthy as Compassion Services International, and I am glad to know that my donations will have global impact.
I'm thankful for the work Compassion Services is doing. My greatest feeling is trust. I can be sure that the funds are going for the need that has been presented. I can also be assured that the people on the scene that are helping to give out the funds are godly people that will be great examples of Christian living. God bless you in the work you are doing.
