About

The IRC goes to crisis zones to rescue & rebuild. For more than 75 years, we've been leading refugees from harm to home. www.rescue.org

Founded in 1933, the International Rescue Committee is a global leader in emergency relief, rehabilitation, protection of human rights, post-conflict development, resettlement services and advocacy for those uprooted or affected by conflict and oppression. www.rescue.org

Our Efficiency

Of every $1 the IRC spends, more than 90¢ goes to programs and services that directly benefit refugees and communities affected by war or disaster.

Our Ratings

The IRC is consistently awarded high marks by charity watchdog groups and respected publications for our efficient use of financial support and the effectiveness of our work. Read our annual report and learn more about our ratings at http://www.rescue.org/about/financial-information.
