In-Kind Giving Opportunities

  • In-kind donations help UFVRA to continue its important work on behalf of refugees worldwide. In-kind giving--contributions of goods and services--can immediately impact the lives of newly arrived refugees, as well as asylum seekers, and we welcome your help.

Donate Your Frequent Flyer Miles

  • UFVRA has partnered with  Local organisation, a non-profit charity dedicated to using donated non food items and money for the relocation of refugees and those seeking asylum--including families recently separated at  CAR Boarder to start a new beginning in a new home. UFVRA and Local organisation, will work to identify refugees and asylum seekers who need assistance purchasing airfare to reunite with their families.

Help UFVRA Clients Get to Appointments

  • Depending on where UFVRA clients live, navigating to and from various immigration, medical, and employment-based appointments can be both time consuming and beyond their means. By purchasing an Uber gift card for a UFVRA client, you will assist refugees and asylum seekers in a tangible, practical way. To give an Uber gift card to help a UFVRA client, please purchase one on the Uber website and email the digital gift card to admin@ufvra.org.au (Please make sure to indicate in the message if you would like a tax-exempt receipt.)

Help UFVRA Clients with Housing

UFVRA is partnering with  ORPHANAGE HOME through their Open Homes social impact platform, which connects displaced persons in need of temporary housing to community members who have available space to share. To learn more about this program, visit the Open Homes webpage. Select “Offer your space” to begin creating a listing. (If you have an existing listing on  ORPHAN HOME, you will be given the option to check a box indicating your interest in making it available as an Open Home.) Please note:

  • If you want to host refugees, including but not limited to  UFVRA clients, please make sure to select “Refugee relief.”

  • By listing your home on ORPHAN HOME Open Homes, your listing will be available to other nonprofits, not just to UFVRA It is up to you to decide which bookings you accept or decline.

  • If a UFVRFA staff member reaches out through Open Homes to request a booking, you’ll have the opportunity to chat with them, set expectations, and confirm logistics before anything is finalized.

  • You can offer your entire home, or just a spare room.

  • You choose who stays at your place, get to ask questions, hear more about each guest, and agree on the length of stay before anything is official.
