As the military invasion in Ukraine escalates, millions of people are facing a serious humanitarian crisis and are in need of urgent assistance.
Together, we can support communities impacted by this devastating violence and the regions open to helping displaced people.
All donations raised will be distributed to verified nonprofit organizations supporting vulnerable communities to obtain access to shelter, food, medical services, education, and psychosocial support, as well as other people impacted.
We are collaborating with a number of partners including the US Department of State and Global Giving to identify organizations that are providing effective relief now to those impacted.
As of March 16, GoFundMe.org has approved grants to the following:
Aldeas Infantiles SOS de Espana (SOS Childrens Villages of Spain)
We will continue to evaluate this ever-shifting situation, add recipient charities to the list as they are properly vetted to confirm funds can be sent where needed and can reach those on the ground who need support. We will post timely updates when grants have been made.
Will you join us in providing needed help to impacted civilians?
GoFundMe.org is a 501(c)(3) public charity (EIN 81-2279757). Its mission is to provide fast and effective relief to victims of disaster, and to fund education and other charitable initiatives. In its first 5 years of operation, GoFundMe.org raised over $140 million, for distribution to vetted nonprofit organizations serving the same mission, and to verified individuals who are part of the charitable class. GoFundMe.org eliminates the paradox of choice for donors by providing one centralized place to give, knowing that those dollars are efficiently dispersed to the right organizations and people. Donations to this fund are tax-deductible to the extent permissible by law.
