Donations Registry

Cash is always the best way to help international disaster victims. Those wishing to donate items in-kind are encouraged to review USAID CIDI‘s Guidelines for Appropriate International Disaster Donations before doing so.  USAID CIDI recognizes the need for specialized volunteers and offers of commodities to be registered and made available to responding relief agencies for consideration. To channel the public’s generosity, USAID CIDI offers a database with offers of Technical or Commodity Assistance. Read below to find out how you can register your goods or services.

Please note, the information you provide will be made available to responding agencies. Registering your offer with USAID CIDI does not guarantee acceptance of your offer.  If an agency wishes to pursue your offer, it will be done directly with you and independently of the USAID CIDI.  Therefore, the USAID CIDI does not track or maintain any information on the status of your offer.
