Join us on our mission to transform miles and points into a life-changing force for good!
Your pledges help people impacted by war, persecution, or disaster start a new beginning in a new home. Our nonprofit partners identify refugees, asylees, asylum-seekers, and their immediate family members, who have legal approval to travel but cannot afford airfare, and then Miles4Migrants helps fly them to their new homes!
How Do I Help?
When you pledge miles/points, you’re pledging to fulfill a future case from one of our partner organizations. Our flight booking team will find the most efficient use of miles for each received case. Once we have a case that matches your specific pledge, we’ll work with you to book the flights.
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
- United Airlines
- Alaska Airlines
- Southwest Airlines
- Air Canada/Aeroplan
The minimum donation amounts reflect airline programs' lowest single passenger award fare that Miles4Migrants can book for a refugee, asylum seeker, or asylee.
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!
Miles4Migrants stands fully behind the CDC’s recommendations to stay at home and avoid all non-essential travel for those who are able, but we also stand up for those who must travel in order to reach a safe location.
In the U.S., District Courts are ordering that immigration detention centers reduce the number of people detained to ensure the health and safety of asylum-seekers housed in overcrowded facilities during the pandemic. Miles4Migrants is continuing to provide airfare within the U.S. so that these individuals can expeditiously reach a safer destination, with family members and sponsors waiting to support them. Our charity partners are following recommended safety protocols, including providing masks and offering guidance on safety procedures during travel.
For international flights, we are seeing a decrease in the number of requests due to global flight restrictions. Although reduced, we will continue to fly individuals to countries that consider refugee visa holders exempt from travel restrictions. We expect to see an increase in international flight requests when the pandemic subsides and need your support now to be ready when that day comes.
