Reminders and Next Steps

  • Graduating seniors: You're invited to join or start CRS Chapters from whatever city or community you are part of post-college. Email to continue collaborating in our work to end global poverty.

  • Donations to support the response in Ukraine: CRS and Caritas partners are on the ground and need immediate support to meet ongoing needs as the situation intensifies. With your gift, families in Ukraine and the surrounding countries receive food, clothing, transport to safe shelter, cash assistance, counseling and care for children. Consider donating or sharing this donation link with others in your network. Donate here (en español).

  • SALT 2022 cancelled: We are sad to announce that, due to unforeseen circumstances, we have made the difficult decision to cancel the CRS SALT Summit 2022. We are very sorry for any inconvenience or disappointment this may cause, but we look forward to collaborating with you in other exciting ways.
