Have an idea to make the world better?

We want to fund it!

God tells his people to change the world and we want to help you do that. What problem do you see that breaks your heart? We want to help you fix it.

As a part of our 25th Anniversary celebration, from June through October of 2021, Crossroads will be selecting and funding 10 projects from our online community that make the world better and show people God’s unbreakable love for them. It could be anything from helping a neighbor to starting a non-profit. Let’s GO change the world!
