Supporting efforts to welcome newcomers in communities across the U.S.

The Welcome Fund supports frontline service organizations and sponsors in the U.S.—representing diverse faiths, ethnicities, cultures, and identities—as they welcome newcomers in communities across the country.

Americans of all walks of life are enthusiastic about standing up and helping with resettlement. It’s extraordinary. It’s some of the most hopeful work I know.
Cecilia Muñoz, Welcome.US Co-chair
