Crisis Alert: Our charities are responding to the catastrophic earthquakes that hit Turkey, Syria and surrounding areas. Provide urgent funding to support their work.

Respond to Emergencies

From hurricanes to forced displacement in conflict situations, our Charity Alliance members have the capacity to act swiftly in the wake of natural disasters and humanitarian crises around the world. Leading response organizations, including Americares, Direct Relief, International Medical Corps, and Save the Children, are vital to response efforts. Their teams work on the ground to erect temporary shelters, deliver emergency medical supplies, protect children and others who need special assistance, ensure access to basic resources, and maintain sanitary conditions. They also have established programs in place to help affected individuals and communities attain long-term stability. 

Interested in setting up an emergency fund for your company? Global Impact’s Emergency Response Program offers strategic guidance and resources to launch an immediate campaign that gives employees the opportunity to donate to an emergency situation of your choice. These emergency funds can also be made available through your company’s employee giving platforms. Contact us at [email protected] to get started today.

Turkey/Syria earthquake map

A deadly 7.8 magnitude earthquake struck Turkey, close to the Syrian border, on Monday, Feb. 6, followed by a series of aftershocks. An additional 6.4 magnitude earthquake hit the same region on Monday, Feb. 20. Over 50,000 people have died, tens of thousands are injured and more than 9 million people have been displaced or affected. The destruction and suffering are amplified by harsh winter conditions, damaged infrastructure and the political conflict in Syria.

Thankfully, our leading humanitarian partners were already working in the region and thus able to respond immediately. They’ve helped provide families with shelter, medical aid, food, water and more. In the coming days and weeks, their work will shift to the long-term needs created by this crisis.

We ask that you support the work of these charities by giving to the Turkey-Syria Earthquake Relief Fund. Your generosity can provide the hope someone needs to make it through this difficult time.

Russia’s invasion of Ukraine has propelled millions to leave their homes. In addition to the immediate harm faced by civilians, the massive humanitarian crisis is upending communities, crushing the local economy, halting children’s education and thwarting access to medical care.

You can help: Give to the Ukraine Response Fund today. Your donation goes to multiple leading nonprofits – including International Medical Corps, International Rescue Committee and Project HOPE – and supports their critical work to:

  • Distribute medical staff and supplies for lifesaving care.
  • Protect refugees, many of whom are women and children.
  • Supply healthy food, clean water and reliable power.
  • Provide mental and emotional support.
  • Reunite separated families.
