We know many of you are gravely concerned about the humanitarian and economic crisis created by the invasion of Ukraine by Russia. If you would like to help, here are some resources where you can direct your giving.
The local chapters of the United Way of Northeast Florida, the Jewish Federation and Foundation of Jacksonville, and Lutheran Social Services of Northeast Florida all have donation pages on their website tied to their organizations’ global efforts.
In addition, there are other international relief agencies working to alleviate the suffering that is occurring each day. They include:
As always, The Center for Disaster Philanthropy is an excellent resource for information and connections to those organizations doing this work. And another good resources is Benevity’s list of US-based crisis relief funds actively working to end the suffering in Ukraine.
We are also aware of a number of more targeted funding opportunities for specific populations:
- Urgent Action Fund for Women’s Human Rights
- Global Fund for Children
- List of Ukrainian-based feminist, queer, youth, disability, and Roma organizations you can donate to directly
As always, thank you for your generosity. Please contact us if you have further questions.
