Your donation to KUER will go twice as far when you choose to support the International Rescue Committee — Salt Lake City (IRC) as your thank-you gift during KUER’s Fall Fund Drive through October 4, 2019.

The Salt Lake City branch of the IRC helps people whose lives and livelihoods are shattered by conflict and disaster to survive, recover and regain control of their future.

During our fall fund drive, you can support their work when you donate and choose the IRC as your thank you gift: 

  • For $60 or $5/month, you can support 1 refugee with tools for self-sufficiency
  • For $120 or $10/month, you can support 2 refugees
  • For $240 or $20/month, you can support 4 refugees

Recently resettled refugees and asylum-seekers will receive critical support to ensure they secure gainful employment and are on the path to self-sufficiency shortly after they arrive including… 

  • Purchase of a new work uniform
  • Financial literacy workshops to learn about banking and building credit
  • Public Transit passes
  • Refurbished bicycle with a helmet, bike lock, and light set
  • Savings and loan program to assist with starting a small business, purchasing a vehicle or a home
