Donating to the Phillipines

Generally speaking, what is most needed during this time is cash donations to the professional relief organizations. Cash donations allow disaster relief organizations to purchase exactly what is needed, when it is needed, from established supply chains, and to procure supplies near the affected area, cutting down on transportation time and cost. If you or your organization is interested in making a monetary contribution, take a look at a list of relief organizations below who are accepting cash donations.

Organizations with specific assets that are needed for short-term, immediate relief operations, such as transportation, water, food, tents, and medical supplies, can contact the Embassy’s economic section for assistance in making such donations: ManilaEcon@state.gov [+63](2)301-2000/2280.  The U.S. Commercial Service Philippines can also pass on business-related assistance (equipment) to the appropriate resources.  They can be contacted at Office.Manila@trade.gov.
