Each year in the United States hundreds of natural disasters occur. And each year in the United States resettling refugees and new immigrants face large-scale emergencies. Some natural disasters are large enough to make the news, but often dozens of smaller natural disasters escape media attention. The Emergency USA Fund allows UCC Disaster Ministries to respond to both large and small natural and human-caused disasters in all U.S. states and territories. This Emergency USA Fund also enables the United Church of Christ to be even more deeply involved in refugee and immigrant emergencies within the United States.
If you prefer to donate by mail, make checks payable to Emergency USA Fund. Mail to: United Church of Christ c/o Financial Services office, 700 Prospect Ave., Cleveland OH 44115
Un-designated giving allows the United Church of Christ to respond where resources are needed most but if you prefer to designate your gift you may do so by noting the disaster or refugee/immigration emergency in the designated box on the on-line form or in the memo line of the check.
100% of funds to the United Church of Christ designated for U.S. disaster relief are used for disaster relief and rehabilitation programming within the United States. 100% of funds to the United Church of Christ for U.S. refugee resettlement/immigration emergencies are used for providing humanitarian assistance in these situations within the United States.
*Funds raised in response to a specific solicitation, that exceed the amount necessary to respond fully to the designated disaster or emergency will be directed towards other emergency-relief and disaster-preparedness efforts in the United States.
