USA for UNHCR helps and protects refugees and people displaced by violence, conflict and persecution.
Our mission is to keep refugees safe, protect their rights and save their lives. USA for UNHCR ensures every dollar we receive is spent wisely. We want you to give with confidence when you make a gift to support refugees, so we strive for excellence in financial accountability and transparency. We work to maximize the value of every dollar we receive. Donations made to USA for UNHCR assist UNHCR programs and long-term solutions in some of the most vulnerable conflict areas. UNHCR is the only organization in the world mandated to serve refugees. This gives us the flexibility to channel funds to wherever the needs are the greatest.
When USA for UNHCR is fundraising for a specific emergency or crisis, 100% of designated restricted donations will apply to that particular emergency or crisis. Should USA for UNHCR raise funds in excess of what is required to respond to that particular crisis, the remaining funds are redirected to where the need is greatest.
"I give ... to make the statement that most Americans do care ... I cannot imagine the fear and hopelessness refugees go through."
– Monica B., USA for UNHCR donor
