Support Afghan families and children seeking safety fundraiser: FAQs
Who is the trusted team and how are they engaged?
The disbursement process is led by discerning leaders with lived experience. We believe that welcoming families in need who are fleeing atrocities is the right thing to do!
Our advisors include trusted female leaders across the globe. They include leaders from Afghan communities, philanthropy, and the private sector who have collectively spent decades supporting communities in crisis. Together we ensure every dollar goes to those in need and is tracked transparently. 100% of the funds go to key organizations. We offer our quick processes to get your funds where they are needed ASAP!
How do you know who to help?
Our partners have been working with communities on the ground in Afghanistan and the region for decades. We are coordinated with both community, civil society organizations, governments, and military to ensure the highest risk targets are out first and then others who fear for their lives.
Where does the money go?
It goes to nonprofit organizations with 501c3 status that are working to support Afghans at risk. The work is evolving and we keep adjusting to the needs – our approach is nimble.
Here is what we’ve supported so far:
- $60,000 to the Institute for State Effectiveness (ISE) for their humanitarian coordination effort.
- $20,000 to the Afghanistan Engagement Project to support its work helping to support Afghans at risk.
How long does it take to get funds to the key organization?
We pride ourselves on our quick turnaround while ensuring transparency! We will get the funds out as soon as we receive them.
Why are you doing this?
Some of our advisors have lived experience and were forced to flee themselves; others have a strong purpose grounded in securing belonging and dignity for refugees. What brings us here is our commitment to ensure safe passage and a dignified welcome for people in need. Many Afghan-led organizations and other peers in solidarity are not visible in mainstream media! They commit their lives to ensure safety for Afghans forced to flee and get less than 1% of the funding. We want to change that!
