fundraise to see UNRWA’s work firsthand in Jordan

For the first time in UNRWA USA history, we're offering a free trip, alongside members of the UNRWA USA staff, to visit UNRWA work in Jordan.

Raise $3,000 or more on your personal 2019 Gaza 5K fundraising page to be entered into a raffle to win. There you'll see firsthand the work UNRWA is doing for Palestine refugees and the impact supporters like you are making — this is the trip of a lifetime for those passionate about promoting the dignity and well-being of Palestine refugees! 

The trip will include:

  • roundtrip airfare and accommodation 

  • visits to UNRWA facilities with UNRWA USA staff and an opportunity to meet UNRWA professionals, beneficiaries, and leaders 

To qualify, you must be at least 18 years of age and fundraise through your individual fundraising page by October 1, 2019. Travel plans and dates will be coordinated with UNRWA USA staff. For questions or assistance with fundraising, please contact Harley Dority at

Without the help of fundraisers like you, UNRWA's Community Mental Health Programme would not be possible.

You don’t need special skills to be a rockstar fundraiser. With a few tips and a cause you're passionate about, you’ll be surprised how many people will want to support you. You just have to ask! 

Tips for Getting Started:

  • Personalize your fundraising page. Add your photo, your story, even a selfie-style video sharing why you care about the Gaza 5K, refugees, Palestine, and/or mental health.

  • Download our participant fundraising guide. If you started your own team, email us for our team captain guide.

  • Donate to yourself to get the party started! 

  • Ask three (3) family members, friends, and colleagues to sponsor you for $20 each. That's an easy $60 right there!

  •  Share your fundraising pages on social media using #Gaza5K.
