Campaign – The Travel Summit

Miles4Migrants is proud to be the Charity Partner for this event. Learn more about Miles4Migrants mission and how to donate, below.

Together, we can transform miles into a life-changing force for good.

Miles4Migrants uses frequent flyer miles, credit card points, and cash to help people impacted by war, persecution, or disaster start a new beginning in a new home. We partner with other nonprofits to identify refugees, asylees, asylum-seekers, and their immediate family members who have legal approval to travel but cannot afford airfare.

How It Works

1. Find Your Loyalty Program

We accept donations from a variety of loyalty and rewards programs. We’re currently in need of miles from AirCanada/Aeroplan, United Airlines, Alaska Airlines, Air France/ KLM/Flying Blue, and JetBlue. A minimum donation of 1000 miles is required.

2. Donate and Transfer Your Miles

After entering your donation information above, you will be directed to instructions on how to transfer your miles to our account. Once you’ve successfully made the transfer, your donation is complete!

3. Your Donation Flies Someone to a New Home

Miles4Migrants works with nonprofit partners to match individuals and families with your donated miles and fly them to a new home.  

Frequently Asked Questions

What miles/points are most useful?

We accept miles from many airline and credit card programs; however, based on the most frequent requests for departure/arrival locations, certain programs are used more frequently than others. Our most needed miles/points right now are below.

Credit Card Points:

  • Chase Ultimate Rewards
  • Capital One Rewards
  • American Express Membership Rewards
  • Citi ThankYou Points

Airline Miles:

  • United Airlines
  • Alaska Airlines
  • Southwest Airlines
  • Air Canada/Aeroplan

Why does Miles4Migrants have minimum pledge amounts?

The minimum pledge amounts reflect airline programs' lowest single passenger award fare that Miles4Migrants can book for a refugee, asylum seeker, or asylee.

What about cash donations?

While our primary purpose is to use airline miles to book flights, these award flights often incur additional taxes/fees. Cash donations help us to cover those extra costs!
