Americas Rapid Response Fund

The Americas Rapid Response Fund is a pooled charitable giving fund developed in partnership with the Sustainable Markets Foundation supporting people forced to flee.

As of May 2018, there are 30,000 to 60,000 forcibly displaced people leaving Venezuela every week, seeking refuge throughout the region.  While UNHCR, IOM, and WFP are mobilizing their efforts, there are so many of those who are fleeing are not able to access basic humanitarian relief.

Your contributions will go to support grassroots organizations that are responding to the needs of those displaced by the Venezuelan situation. 

The initial focus of the Americas Rapid Response Fund will be to fund organizations that are providing immediate humanitarian relief. The second phase of the grant-making will be to organizations that are engaged in programs of integrating the displaced within their host communities. Subsequently the fund will adapt to address further needs as they arise.

We welcome your support, you can donate online today or if you are interested in contributing via snail mail or carrier pigeon, Contact us today!
