Miles4Migrants: Donate Miles. Help refugees reach safe homes.

The global refugee crisis is our century’s greatest source of societal suffering: over 70 million people have been displaced from their homes due to war, persecution and disaster.

For refugees and asylum-seekers from the LGBTQ+ community, 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.

By donating your MileagePlus miles to Miles4Migrants, you can help refugees, asylees and asylum-seekers around the globe reach safe homes, including those who are part of the LGBTQ+ community.

Miles4Migrants uses donated airline miles, points and money to pay for the flights of those who are legally approved to travel but cannot afford the airfare. We partner with a global network of nonprofit organizations to verify the financial need and legal permissions required in order to fly individuals to their new home. These partners include Queer Detainee Empowerment Project, the International Rescue Committee, Las Americas Immigrant Advocacy Center, Catholic Charities USA, Minority Humanitarian Foundation, HIAS and RAICES.

Since launching in 2016, we’ve used donated miles to fly over 2,600 people from 55 countries of birth, reunited 1,100+ families, and redeemed over 43 million frequent flyer miles with over $1.1 million in cash value.

With the support of MileagePlus members, we can continue to transform miles into a life-changing force for good.
