How You Can Donate
Both one time and monthly donations are gratefully accepted
Become a Sustaining Donor
Recurring monthly donations help us enormously with operational costs
One Time Donation
for showing that you care!
We are pleased to offer a new service for online donations. Through Karma Payments we can accept both one-time and recurring donations, which can be set up at any frequency you choose, using Visa, MasterCard, Discover, American Express or your bank account. Donations may still be made through PayPal if you prefer. Through Karma, AIDNW does receive a greater portion of your donation than those made through PayPal, by asking you to pay a processing fee when you donate.
Mail in Donations
Checks may be sent to the office address: 1915 S. Sheridan Ave, Tacoma, WA 98405, and recurring donations can also be arranged through Bill Pay at your bank.

News and Events
RECORD NUMBERS OF RELEASES!
AIDNW volunteers have been serving as many as 30 released detainee guests each day. Large numbers of immigrants requesting asylum are being brought to Tacoma's NW ICE Processing Center from the southern border, given a court date and released after a short time.
Our volunteers are working in shifts at the AIDNW Welcome Center from 1 to 7 PM Monday through Friday and sometimes later, helping guests plan travel all over the country to reach their family members.
This uptick in guests is straining our resources, and ICE has told us that this level of releases is expected to continue indefinitely.
We ask for your support. We are looking for:
- Additional volunteer drivers
- Welcome Center volunteers
- Monetary contributions.

You can also send checks to our office at 1915 Sheridan Ave Tacoma, WA 98405.
It takes a village! We are grateful for all of our community support.
