Respond to Emergencies

When it comes to emergency situations, it’s not a matter of if but when the next will occur. Global Impact’s Charity Alliance includes leading response organizations like Americares, Direct Relief, International Medical Corps and Save the Children. From hurricanes to forced displacement in conflict situations, our member charities have the capacity to act swiftly in the wake of natural disasters and humanitarian crises around the world. These organizations are vital in response efforts, erecting temporary shelters, delivering emergency medical supplies, protecting children and others who need special assistance, and ensuring that basic resources are available and sanitary conditions are maintained. They also have established programs in place to help affected individuals and communities regain 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.

Ready to donate? Give directly to active emergencies or give to Global Impact’s Standing Emergency Response Fund and support charities on the ground serving those in need. 

Global Impact’s charity partners are supporting Afghan refugees in this time of crisis.

The people of Afghanistan have endured decades of conflict and violence, and the situation is   forcing thousands to flee for safety. "Since May, nearly 250,000 people have been forced from their homes; 80% of them are women and children," said Shabia Mantoo, a spokesperson for the U.N. refugee agency. 

This instability is in addition to other humanitarian crises affecting the country, such as famine, natural disasters and the COVID-19 pandemic. Our charity partners have longstanding commitments to the people of Afghanistan and are already mobilizing their response teams. 

Your support is needed urgently. Give through the Afghanistan Refugee Crisis Fund to support our charity partners as they help the Afghan people.

A deadly 7.2 magnitude earthquake hit western Haiti on Saturday, Aug. 14, followed by a tropical storm on Monday, Aug. 16. More than 2,000 people have died and thousands more are injured. The Haitian government declared a state of emergency, and many of our charity partners located in Haiti are suffering the effects of the earthquake themselves while continuing to deliver relief to those in need.
The situation is critical, and there has been significant damage to infrastructure. Ruin and rubble make it difficult to conduct search and rescue efforts, deliver supplies to hospitals, and communicate while internet and phone systems are down. 

Help the people of Haiti today. Give through the Haiti Earthquake Relief Fund to support our Charity Alliance partners who are on the ground supporting Haiti during this time.

Global Impact’s Charity Alliance partners are making a real difference in the midst of hard times.

Many of us are looking forward to getting vaccinated and returning to a more normal way of life; however, with more than 145 million confirmed cases and over 3 million deaths, COVID-19 is still seriously affecting many low-resource countries that need our support. In particular, India is simultaneously facing an alarming rise in case numbers and a shortage of critical supplies like oxygen and ventilators.

Meanwhile, the global vaccine rollout – a vital component of our strategy to defeat COVID-19 – has been unequal, especially in low-income countries. 

Once again, our Charity Alliance partners are responding to these threats. They are working in India and around the world mitigating and treating COVID-19; delivering medical and protective supplies to health care workers; providing hunger relief; assisting businesses with containment and continuity strategies; and addressing vaccine access and the needs of health systems ahead of vaccination campaigns. 

Global Impact’s COVID-19 Relief Fund has provided over $1 million in relief funding for COVID-19, supporting nonprofits that are combatting COVID-19, working toward a peoples’ vaccine and continuing other vital services during this pandemic.

Give to the COVID-19 Relief Fund today and help advance these relief and recovery efforts for those impacted.
