Become a Supporter

Your gift makes a real and direct impact in the lives of refugee and immigrant youth in America by providing access to education, arts, athletics, and community for all.

Fugees Family is a proud grassroots organization – since we began this work 20 years ago, donors like you have been vital to our growth. From crowdfunding school buses to donating soccer equipment, our advancement of educational justice has always been a community effort.

No matter the amount, your donation matters.

“When you have the ability to help others, you have to use it very well. It actually makes me pretty, beautifully proud. To see people like me, we came here the same [with no] English, but we are improving together. And it makes me feel a little bit excited, happy, and proud.”

Give the gift of exceptional education to refugee and immigrant students every month

We all deserve to learn and grow in a safe and supportive environment, but access to quality education for refugee and immigrant youth is still out of reach for many. When you become a monthly donor, you’re supporting more than just a school program – you’re sustaining a one-of-a-kind community.


There are so many ways you can be a part of the movement for educational justice. From hosting an event, to celebrating a birthday, to putting on soccer tournaments – you choose how you want to contribute to leveling the playing field.
