Ways to Give

Get Involved

Your support makes the work we do possible.

Financial gifts enable us to sustain and augment the services we offer to refugee families. The federal grants we receive that make up the bulk of our funding are limited and restricted in their use. We, therefore, depend on the generous support of individuals like you to provide consistent and quality services to those who need them most.

Together, we can make a difference in the lives of newcomers.

Other ways to give

  • Give Monthly

    Increase impact by signing up to make a recurring monthly donation. By making ECDC part of your monthly budget you will have the confidence of knowing you are helping newcomers meet their basic needs. This can be done in the donation form above by selecting “monthly” under “donation schedule”.

  • Donate your day

    Instead of receiving gifts for your birthday, a holiday, or a special occasion, request family and friends to give to ECDC in your honor. Celebrate knowing that vulnerable families are better off thanks to you.

  • Fundraise

    Organize a walk, bake sale, raffle, car wash, or other creative action to ask friends and family to contribute to this worthy cause. You may be surprised how much support you can raise and how much fun you’ll have in the process.

  • Match your gift

    Many employers match charitable donations through their corporate social responsibility programs. Ask your employer today and double your gift! You can also search for your employer here.

  • Send a check

    If you are not comfortable donating online, you can always mail a check to ECDC at 901 S. Highland Street, Arlington, VA 22204.

  • Shop at Amazon Smile

    Go to smile.amazon.com and select “Ethiopian Community Development Council (ECDC)” as your preferred charitable organization. If you always use this site for your online shopping, ECDC will receive 0.5% of your eligible purchases from Amazon at no additional cost to you. It is also available in the amazon shopping app.
