Financial Donations

This post is to give you some suggestions of places to donate if you want to support refugee resettlement in the US.

A very simple and effective way to support refugee resettlement is to donate to one of the resettlement agencies. Many are religiously-affiliated but not all (USCRI and IRC are not). All of of these are official resettlement agencies and are reliable to donate to. All are passionate about helping refugees but the larger agencies are generally able to do more advocacy.

Another great option is IRIS in Connecticut who is organizing the community sponsorship model in that state.

There are also many, many other groups that support refugees and immigrants all over the US.  It's a great idea to find a local group that you can donate to.

There are also legal groups to donate to.
