The White Cross Ball of New York City raises funds for three of the Order's humanitarian efforts. The Holy Family Hospital of Bethlehem Foundation is a charity maternity and neonatal hospital providing the highest level of obstetric and newborn care in the region of the West Bank regardless of religion, race, or ability to pay. Malteser International Americas provides humanitarian relief and supports development efforts in local communities. 

The White Cross Ball has in the past supported the Order of Malta International Summer Camp for Disabled Youth, which hosts 200 disabled young people and 300 volunteers from 30 nations in a different European host country every summer. In 2022, a similar camp will be launched in the United States. The White Cross Ball continues to support participation in the Orders’ camps.
