Past Winners: Relief


Support Urgent Disaster Relief

This category is established to make sure we address the most urgent crisis at the moment and help the victims of natural or man-made disasters overcome their hardships. This includes wildfires, hurricanes, floods, droughts, tsunamis, and the mass migration and humanitarian crises often associated with wars and genocide. We also include causes offering smaller scale relief of various kinds.

Each month, Charitocracy and our amazing donors hand select charities including ones that support urgent disaster relief. By the end of the month, through voting we select one charity out of all the nominated charities from all 12 categories to which we donate our monthly pooled donations. Chances are, the charities you nominate or vote for will win Charitocracy's monthly grant!

Take a look at the list below of disaster relief charities that have won our monthly pot in the past. Then check out the current disaster relief charity nominees (or all nominees) for this month's voting. Are we missing one you'd like to win?
