WTOP: 5 ways nonprofits can…
At Miles4Migrants, we envision a world where displaced persons of all backgrounds find safety and community in their new homes. We are a 501(c)(3) charity, dedicated to using donated frequent flyer miles, credit card points, and money to help people impacted by war, persecution, or disaster start a new beginning in a new home. We partner with other nonprofits to identify refugees, asylees, asylum-seekers, and their immediate family members who have legal approval to travel but cannot afford airfare. Together, we can transform miles into a life-changing force for good. The individuals that we support have survived extraordinary situations for the betterment of their families and to live in a safe environment. We are honored to play a small part in their journey to a new life and community. Our values of empowerment, compassion, collaboration, and accountability reflect our commitment to and respect for displaced persons and our community of donors, volunteers, colleagues, and partners. See our latest annual report to learn how we have flown over 4,500 people using donated frequent flyer miles to reunite with their families since we began in 2016.
