Crisis Response International has trained nearly 10,000 crisis response volunteers to respond with compassion and meet the urgent needs of those affected by disaster and crisis.
Since 2007, CRI has responded with boots on the ground to the world's most desperate situations and has mobilized over 25 million dollars worth of relief, services, and volunteer man-hours but we want to do so much more!
CRI has signed a contract to purchase a new permanent 84-acre training camp, mission base, and conference center located in Blue Ridge, Virginia!
This camp facility would allow us to run year-round training events, schools, retreats, and conferences so we can train more volunteers and ultimately reach more people in crisis around the world.
We would finally have a place for staging our response trucks and trailers, warehousing for relief supplies and best of all, housing for full-time staff and interns so CRI infrastructure can grow and expand our reach.
Our Goals & How to Help
This property has been appraised at $2.4 million. However, we can purchase this camp for so much less!
In order for us to acquire this CRI Camp debt free, make urgent repairs and modifications, purchase essential equipment and overhaul the septic system, we need to raise $1M.
We understand this is a significant goal so we broke the campaign down into areas of "Sponsorships". Click the "Sponsorships" tab to learn more about the camp, view pictures and see how the camp will be used.
When you get to the "Sponsorships" page, pick a building or area of the camp that interests you. You can sponsor the building or area in full or in part; either way, every gift counts towards that specific sponsorship goal until the need is met. You can even become a fundraiser for that specific area of sponsorship that has meaning to you. CRI will add your name to a dedication plaque at the camp as a sponsor in that area.
Please consider making a sacrificial gift and becoming a fundraiser today!
