About HIAS

There have never been more people seeking safety and so few places willing to protect and welcome them. More than 84 million people are fleeing persecution.

For more than 100 years, HIAS has been there for refugees when and where they need help most. We are a Jewish humanitarian organization that works in the United States and 15 other countries, providing vital services to refugees and asylum seekers of all faiths so they can rebuild their lives. With the Jewish community beside us, we also advocate for the rights of forcibly displaced people globally.

Over our expansive history, we’ve confronted—and overcome—formidable challenges facing refugees. Today, we are a leader with the expertise, partnerships, and values necessary to respond to the global crisis.

Refugees deserve a world in which they find welcome, safety, and freedom. You can help support that mission through personal fundraising.

Simply use our online tools to create a fundraising campaign for yourself or a team. You'll have the opportunity to personalize your campaign with a goal, photo, and explanation of why you support HIAS. HIAS will create a custom fundraising site that you or a team can share with family and friends to solicit donations. Track your gifts, thank donors for their support, and more from your own personal dashboard.
