CSI sponsors worthy projects around the world while maintaining low operating costs. I love that they have smaller projects that you can contribute to and make a big difference in an individual's life.

This organization is truly worthy of recognition. They embody their name Compassion. Whether it is assisting with a domestic or international disaster or assisting with an individual, they show compassion.

They also keep donors informed which helps us know how the money is spent. I trust this organization to steward the money donated wisely.

I went with this group to the Dominican Republic. The trip changed my life. We worked very hard and treated around 600 people. Missionaries were great to work with. Our directors and leaders of the trip were motivational and inspiring. I will go on another trip with this organization.

I cannot go into the countries that have been hit with disasters. But, my brothers and sisters in the Lord are going and have been doing amazing things with mine and other folks charitable donations. They are helping and doing what God would want us to do. This is why I love to support Compassion Services International

Hands down the best charity group of this kind out there. Getting your money where it can do the most good for fellow man. This is not a hype based organization, but a service oriented effort making a real difference. Keep up the good work.

Absolutely the best charity, everyone truly cares about people. From the leaders to all the workers, everyone does it because they want to help others not because they have too. I got to see how much they care first hand, when i volunteered with them a few years ago. Also they are top notch, and very professional.

I worked with CSI in Haiti, summer 2012. Yes even 2 years after the disaster, they were still working to help the many people in need. A true VOLUNTEER organization, that anyone can be proud to be a part of. Whether volunteer, donor, or involved in another aspect of CSI, you won't be disappointed. To this day it remains the one time I really felt I made a difference. Coming home at the end of my time was hard, knowing there was still so much to do. Thankfully CSI continues to send teams there, and around the world, to wherever they are needed.

When there is a crisis, compassion is quick to send email alerts with links that show how I can help. They make it easy to give and later give updates on situations.

CSI is great about keeping me updated about how the funds are used. They send regular e mails and video stories that are very inspirational. They communicate about the teams that are leaving for what countries and what goals they set out to accomplish and later how those goals were met; great feedback!
CSI is also prompt in responding to questions about donation receipts and providing a tax statement at the end of the year.
I can tell that these people are very compassionate about what they do for others and are accountable to the people who contribute to their cause ! I am happy to donate to such a great organization!

Thank you CSI for all you do to count for Christ in this present world!

The reason why I am confident to donate to this organization is that I know the people that are helped by my contributions--the services and money given to people in need are real and relevant.
I really liked the ON-SITE video update about the tornado victims in Oklahoma--this video was so well done and allowed contributors to understand the situation, and real needs of people in Real- Life situations. It is COMPASSION IN ACTION --true reaching out to another in need--a hand up, not just a hand out.

Another example that gripped me was the story of how one family in the church in Greece had not eaten any meat in over a year. Due to the economic depression in the country, any food was scarce. To hear the NAMES of families and individual people,-- to see A FACE and a need before me, made giving to this cause a natural and reasonable inclination. The stories helped me to know the people--they became like family to me, but living on the other side of the world. I felt like I was sending a personal package to someone I knew.

To hear the words from this organization that I could send: 'whatever I could contribute'....
helped me to realize I could make a big difference with even a small gift. This attitude of
giving what I could, helped me to feel good about what I could do, and NOT bad about what I could NOT do. I did not act out of guilt, but out of relief and compassion, joyfully knowing that funds would get to where they needed to be, quickly and efficiently!

I trust this organization. I will confidently continue to contribute to Compassion International through the United Pentecostal Church. I look for, and depend on CSI to let me know where the needs are in the world; both here in the United States or abroad, all places are equally represented.
I want to help those in need around me , close and far , and I know this organization will direct my funds into the most appropriate avenues to help the most people possible.

Thank you CSI for helping me to GIVE !

They make it easy to donate to a wide variety of causes, and are on top of crises as they arise. CSI also has a very personal feel to their organization making me feel like I have a voice and helping me know that I can trust them.
