Frequently Asked Questions

Why Donate?

The Interfaith Welcome Coalition has helped thousands of families who have traveled far, seeking asylum from the violence of their homeland.

We don’t have any paid staff. All the people in our organization are committed volunteers. That means we depend on your generous donations to continue effectively operating.

Our donors feel strongly about family separation, the unjust imprisonment of asylum seekers, and the right to a life free from persecution.

Your donations directly strengthen our organization, and thus, positively impact the lives of our migrant families. Thank you!

Kelly Allen Beneavolence Fund

The Kelly Allen Vision Fund

Kelly Allen, our founder, had a broader vision for IWC to support and welcome migrant families seeking safety in the U.S.

We fulfill this vision by:

1) educating the community on immigration issues

2) advocating for asylum seekers, refugees and at-risk immigrants

3) giving immigrants support and a voice in America.
