Donor Survey Summary

Topic / /

Here at USCRI, we are honored to help refugees and immigrants settle successfully in their new communities across the U.S. As a nonprofit organization, we rely on generous donors to help fund our work.

Recently, we sent out a survey asking our donors some important questions: Why do you donate to USCRI? What issues are most important to you? How do you want to hear from us? Highlights from the results:

You are…

  • Most interested in U.S.-focused refugee and immigrant news
  • Also interested in advocacy and taking action
  • Also interested in global news about refugees and immigrants

You support all our work, and are especially excited about supporting:

  • Refugee resettlement and housing
  • Legal aid
  • U.S. cultural orientation
  • Job search and training
  • Medical and mental health services

Connecting with you:

  • 95% of people who see our social media posts enjoy them
  • 87% say it’s easy to donate to USCRI
  • 86% find our emails interesting and useful
  • 85% agree they are making a difference when they donate to USCRI
  • 83% feel recognized and valued by USCRI

You like email! A large majority of donors say they prefer to be kept updated and thanked by email rather than mail or phone calls.

Thank you to everyone who completed our 2018 survey. We are always open to your feedback and suggestions. Feel free to contact Carlin Anderson, Development Officer, at
