Miles4Migrants: Donate Miles. Reunite Families

The global refugee crisis is our century’s greatest source of societal suffering: over 70 million people have been displaced from their homes and separated from their families due to war, persecution and disaster. To help refugees, asylees and asylum seekers reach safety and their loved ones, Miles4Migrants uses donated airline miles, points and money to pay for the flights of those who are legally approved to join their families in a new location, but who can’t afford the airfare.

Miles4Migrants partners with a global network of nonprofit organizations to verify the financial need and legal permissions required in order to fly individuals to their new homes. These partners include the International Rescue Committee, RAICES, Caritas International, Catholic Charities USA, Immigrant Families Together, Lutheran Immigration and Refugee Services, and HIAS.

Our nonprofit partners will provide Miles4Migrants with a flight request, and using miles donated through this campaign, Miles4Migrants will book flights with United to reunite families.

Since our inception in 2016, we’ve used donated miles to fly over 1,600 people from 48 countries of birth, reunited 600+ families, and redeemed over 27 million frequent flyer miles with over $750k in cash value.

Your miles will be crucial to helping us reunite more families across the globe. With the support of MileagePlus members, we can continue to transform miles into a life-changing force for good.

About us

Miles4Migrants is a 501(c)(3), dedicated to using donated frequent flyer miles, credit card points and money to reunite and relocate families around the world and at the U.S.-Mexico border who have been separated by war, persecution and disaster. For refugees and asylum-seekers, persecution may be based on race, religion, nationality, gender, sexual orientation, political views and other factors. Persecution may come from governments, communities and even their own family. For these individuals, finding new homes in supportive communities is their greatest chance at living lives of freedom and safety. Airline miles and credit card points are used to provide tickets for those who are legally approved to travel but who lack the means to pay for the airfare. We partner with a global network of organizations, including UNHCR, IRC, RAICES, and HIAS, to identify refugees, asylees, asylum seekers and their immediate family members in need of assistance. Since forming in 2016, Miles4Migrants has used more than 80 million miles to fly over 5,000 people from 70+ countries of origin to safe homes in 15+ destination countries.
