Asian Refugees United

Please help support ARU's Annual Fundraiser! With your help through the end of the year, we hope to raise $10,000 to strengthen and sustain core programming, enhance staff capacity, and provide office and retreat space for ARU's transformative programs. 

Any amount will help us fulfill our mission to cultivate and restore wholeness in communities impacted by displacement:

  • $30 can purchase one participant's meal in a youth workshop
  • $75 can provide art materials for a participant in one of our programs: QTViet Cafe Collective, Connect-Reflect-Enact (CRE), OUSD Asian & Pacifika Queer Youth, or Mero Geet Mero Yatra Storytellers
  • $300 can cover the stipend of one of our QTViet Artists and Healers cohort members
  • $500 can cover travel expenses for one youth participant in the CAMP for Emerging Leaders Training Program
  • $1,000 can bring a nourishing community meal to our Connect-Reflect-Enact (CRE) Cohort Retreat
  • $5,000 can build a strong foundation, expand our work, and send us to infinity & beyond!

You can also become a sustaining donor by setting up a recurring monthly donation. Your regular support allows us to plan in advance and expand our network of community leaders, organizers, artists, and activists.
