Near East Foundation’s 2019 Fundraising Campaign



On every hero’s journey, there is the unknown, the triumph, and eventually, the reward or solution. NEF’s mission to make the journey for our heroes that much easier —  making sure they are not alone in their fight, and providing them with the access and agency they need to rebuild their lives in the face of obstacles.

At NEF, we meet new heroes everyday. Heroes whose armour of courage stands unwithered; steadfast in the face of unimaginable odds. Mothers, fathers, daughters, and sons, fighting for survival and the betterment of their communities. Straining forward to what lies ahead amidst violence, inequality, climate shocks and persecution.

On every hero’s journey, they can never do it alone.By donating, you are providing that same protection, refuge, and care in order to help these heroes continue their work.



JOIN US in honoring these everyday heroes by BECOMING AN NEF HERO YOURSELF!


Between now and December 31, we are aiming to raise $200,000 to honor the exceptional and resilient people we serve. Your gift will support Heroes like Fatima, Jalal, and Sanata; whose stories we share in this appeal represent the stories of the millions of people NEF works with each year. With your help, they will be given the opportunity to build better futures for themselves, their families, and their communities.
