Q: Where does CRU (formerly Student Venture) minister and what impact is it having?

A: CRU (formerly Student Venture) was founded in 1966 by Bill and Vonette Bright and is the middle and high school ministry of Campus Crusade for Christ. In metro locations across the U.S. and in 12 countries, we are taking the hope of the Gospel and the challenge of discipleship to students on and off their school campus. Please see CRU’s Staffed Cities Advisory Council Report, or the CRU Web site for more information.

Q: How is your salary and support goal determined?

A: Our salary is set by Campus Crusade and is based on my age, financial needs and geographic factors.  Our support goal includes our salary, benefits, a retirement plan, Social Security and ministry expenses.

Q: Does all the support go to you?

A: All support is made payable to Campus Crusade for Christ and is directed to our staff account. All funds go directly to our account and Campus Crusade automatically deducts 12 percent of each donation. Seven of the 12 percent is used for administrative expenses, such as processing payroll, benefits and other services. Five of the 12 percent is used to help fund Campus Crusade ministries in places overseas where staff members find it difficult to raise support.

Q: Who do I make checks payable to?  Why?

A: Please make checks payable to Campus Crusade for Christ. Our names does not need to appear any where on the check. This allows the check to be sent directly to my account with Campus Crusade, and it makes the IRS happy so your gift is tax deductible. If you are sending in a check directly to Campus Crusade please make sure it has an attached note that indicates the check is for my ministry and has my staff account #0623200 on it. See my Partnering page for more information on mailing in donations.

Q: How long are you looking for people to partner financially?
