Foundation and Corporate Partnerships

Catholic Relief Services is proud to have a diverse range of partnerships with foundations and corporations with whom we share a mission of serving the poor and marginalized overseas. Support from our partnerships has increased more than ten-fold since 2004. This signifies the importance we place on our collaboration with private foundations and the corporate sector to help people transform their lives through sustainable development.

Emergency Response 

In the wake of natural disasters, many foundations and corporations have turned to CRS as their preferred agency for providing emergency relief support with a lasting impact. In particular, CRS is known for being among the first to arrive to the frontlines of crisis, having a long-established presence and trusted network of partners in more than 100 countries, and being committed to staying with communities and families until they have rebuilt their lives.

Development Programs

In addition to emergency response, CRS is widely recognized as a leading development agency in areas such as agriculture, health, education, water and sanitation, and microfinance. Our demonstrated track record of program quality, efficiency and sustainability is recognized worldwide—from peers and leaders at the highest international levels, to families and grassroots partners living in the communities we serve.
