KRM Partners Campaign

Campaign Goal: $500,000.00

Amount Raised: $430,642.80

The work continues. Join us on the journey.

KRM has been welcoming refugees to Kentucky for over 27 years. Our work enriches our state because refugees bring their skills, cultures, and dreams to their new Kentucky home.

Your donation to the inaugural KRM Partners campaign will protect our work to provide refugees safety and the opportunity to rebuild. You can support vital resettlement services, and your gift also ensures newcomers receive long-term employment support, youth and young adult education programs, immigration legal services, and more from KRM. Learn more about the impact of your gift.

The campaign will run until December 31, 2017, and our goal is to raise $500,000. You can see a list of our current KRM Partners below the donation form on this page. Thank you!

Update: January 2018

Thank you to everyone who contributed to the KRM Partners campaign! We are finalizing figures and will soon share an update with our total amount raised and the full list of KRM Partners.
