Three reasons to make a recurring donation

1. Reach people right when they need help most

Our teams go where we’re needed most, regardless of public attention, and we get there as fast as we can. The IRC aims to respond to emergencies within 72 hours and when you make a recurring gift, you help to ensure we are prepared and positioned to rapidly respond with health care, clean water, emergency supplies and other life-saving aid.

2. Help people rebuild their lives

We don’t just help families at the onset of a crisis, we stay as long as we’re needed so they can recover and regain control over their futures. We provide education, job training, small business support, resettlement assistance, women’s empowerment programs and so much more.

3. Making a gift is quick, easy and life-changing

When you become a monthly donor, you provide vital assistance every month of the year, giving people caught in humanitarian crises the steady, sustaining support they can count on.

We’ll ensure your gifts are processed each month and put to immediate use where they are needed most.

Donating on a recurring basis is life-changing for the people we serve. There is no better way to support people in crisis around the world.

I knew I was in a unique situation, as a Ukrainian and Polish sign language interpreter, to be able to help Deaf people fleeing war in my homeland.

When I delivered my child at home, the IRC came to rescue me inside the home and helped me, so I called my daughter Enqath [meaning “rescue” in Arabic] .... I delivered my child normally because the IRC helped me.

What sets the IRC apart as an organization

  • We go where we are needed

  • 2022-interview

  • We build community
    Since 1933, the IRC has been helping people affected by conflict and disaster, resettling families and helping them become a part of their new communities.
  • 2022-advocate
    We adapt our programs
    We are relentless in our efforts to adapt and improve our programs. Good enough is not an option. We adapt and never give up on refugees and displaced families.

How monthly giving works

Choose an amount

Select the amount you’d like to give as a recurring gift and rest assured that your gift will be used wisely.

Monthly donations are not restricted to a particular IRC program to ensure your contribution goes where the funding is needed most and support immediate crises.

Make a donation

Once you sign up, each gift is automatically debited from your account, with your first donation charged the day you make a gift.

Your credit card will then be charged the same amount on the 15th of each month. You can change or cancel your recurring donation any time by contacting us at 1-855-973-7283.

Help people in crisis

When you give monthly to the IRC, you help make sure we’re equipped to do what we do best–and that we can do it everyday, year-round.

Your passion for helping others is vital to our mission. As a monthly donor, we’ll be sure to update you on your impact and the work you’re helping us do around the world.

We can’t stop conflicts and disasters from happening. But, with your help, we can reach as many people as possible at the very onset of a crisis, when their homes are no longer safe, and we can stay long afterwards.

By making a monthly gift, you are helping to ensure IRC teams are prepared to take action within 72 hours of an emergency, delivering shelter, food and medicine to children and families. And you are helping to ensure we can stay as long as we are needed, helping families to not only survive, but also recover and rebuild their lives.

Responding to the world's worst humanitarian crises takes a dedicated group of people: people like you who believe in the power of collective action. With your continued support we can have a lasting, positive impact on those we serve, year round.
