Grow Opportunity

Our services grow opportunity for hundreds of high-need refugee, immigrant, and asylee newcomers in the San Francisco Bay Area. With your support, we can continue to reach more. 

Refugee Transitions is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, and your contribution is tax deductible to the extent allowed by law. Contact us to make a multi-year gift and support the sustainability of our services, or donate now through Network for Good:

Ask your HR representative if your company will match your gift to Refugee Transitions! Many companies, including these, have programs that allow them to match the charitable contributions made by their employees to qualifying nonprofit organizations. Please feel free to contact us and let us know if you need any assistance with forms to complete the matching gift process. 

If you are an RT volunteer, your company may also give matching gifts for your volunteer hours.

Donating appreciated securities to RT may result in a bigger donation and a bigger deduction to the donor. It may allow you to bypass the capital gains tax and deduct your gift's fair market value. Please contact Julia@reftrans.org if you're interested in making a gift of stock.
