California Dignity Fund for Families

Host Organization: Tides Foundationmdi-circle-small Petaluma, CA, USA mdi-circle-small


The California Dignity for Families Fund aims to raise an initial $20 million to help migrant families and unaccompanied children at the U.S.-Mexico border receive urgent humanitarian relief and assistance as they request asylum and resettle in communities throughout the state.

Many migrants have arrived at the southern U.S. border fleeing persecution, violence, poverty, and the devastating impacts of climate change. Under the previous federal administration, they were forced to wait in Mexico in harsh and dangerous conditions. They, along with more recent migrants, are now arriving in the United States in record-breaking numbers. An astounding number are children traveling alone. The California Dignity for Families Fund honors the courage and humanity of these migrants and seeks to restore dignity to the asylum process.

The California Dignity for Families Fund is part of a public-private partnership with Governor Gavin Newsom, who has proposed an aligned investment of $25 million for services to unaccompanied youth and children in support of the safety and well-being of families, especially newcomer youth as they settle and integrate into California communities.

As of September 2021, the Fund has expanded its purpose to include support for Afghan and Haitian migrants seeking humanitarian relief. Donate today!
