Send a card with a personal note

You can customize and send an e-card either immediately or on a day you specify. Alternatively, you can choose to print out a card to mail or hand-deliver. Either option will show how much you care about your friend, colleague or family member — and the refugees you’re helping. 

Your thoughtfulness helps a refugee in need

Your gift is a donation that UNHCR — the UN Refugee Agency — will immediately put to work helping women, men and children fleeing violence and persecution.

Want to leave a legacy with UNHCR?

A Will is a legal document that is a statement of your wishes that are to be executed when you pass away. Having a Will gives you the comfort of knowing that the rewards of your life’s work will be distributed and managed according to your wishes.Donating all or part of your estate to UNHCR through your Will means your generosity will help those fleeing from violence and persecution to survive, recover and build better futures. Your compassion will live on in the world’s most vulnerable refugees. The decision to participate in legacy giving is a deeply meaningful and highly personal one.
