Become a Community Fundraiser for the UN Refugee Agency!

There are many Americans, just like you, who are interested in doing more to help the UN Refugee Agency assist the millions of innocent victims around the world who have been forced to flee their homes in search of safety. 

Organizing a fundraising or awareness campaign is a great way to foster support throughout your community for the world’s most vulnerable people. 

In-person events and fundraisers


  Get involved and help support the UN Refugee Agency's work in your community today!

There are many different types of fundraisers or events you can organize.  Some ideas involve a single person encouraging friends, family, neighbors and colleagues to make a donation.  Others are designed for a group, such as a classroom, office or sports team, to do together. 

Your fundraiser can be big or small, anywhere from a public concert to an intimate dinner party with friends. No matter what you choose to do, remember that USA for UNHCR is behind you, ready to answer questions and provide materials.
