CSLI Cross of Honour


Over and over again we honestly emphasise: The Lazarus Union asks neither for application fees nor for membership fees. The Lazarus Union neither receives any public aid or grant nor has it ever asked for such.

So the Lazarus Union finances its various projects only based on voluntary donations and so depends on the money of the various distinctions which can be acquired by purchase and the fees for distinctions applied for.

Distinctions which cannot be applied for are in general awarded without fees but the persons awarded are free to place a donation to the Lazarus Union AFTER having been awarded. 

We consider this open, honest, and transparent towards all persons receiving a distinction from the Lazarus Union because also a “donation“  for a distinction which can be acquired by purchase is in our eyes worthy of an award!



To honour and reward persons who are actively working for humanitarian, charitable and non-profit values territory, and due to the fact that the CSLI Cross of Merit is awarded very restrictively, the Union  Command of the has founded the CSLI Cross of Honour in seven stages.

The honoured persons do not have to be CSLI members necessarily. As fmerit awards and appreciation taken into account. Multiple awards are possible.or deciding the level awarded, the length, intensity and impact of the activities and the social position of the honoured person have to be considered and assessed. However, there should not only “spectacular” achievements become honoured, but also “simple”.

Each person and therefore also non-members of the CSLI has the right to bring forward a request in writing to the Secretary General of the CSLI for a third person to award a CSLI Cross of Honour. Submissions for oneself are not permitted. The application form can be found in the download area. On this form the kind of merit has to be described as accurately as possible by the submitter and if possible by a witness and must be signed personally. However the Bureau of the CSLI has the right to reject requests without further justification or to correct the level of the decoration in both directions. There is no possibility for appeals. The ceremony takes place by the Chairman of the CSLI and via written decree.


All fees in EURO.

(plus shipping fees: EUR 6.- Austria, EUR 16.- Europe, EUR 25.- worldwide)
