2022 Months Of Giving

Local Chapter Fundraising Competition

MAY 2, 2022 UPDATE

Thank you so much for participating in our 2022 Month(s) of Giving fundraising competition!

All funds raised will support World Central Kitchen’s work aiding in the humanitarian crisis in Eastern Europe. As of April, over 5 million refugees have fled Ukraine, while an estimated 7 million people have been displaced within the country. WCK’s #ChefsForUkraine initiative is dedicated to ensuring all citizens have access to fresh food and hot meals. These #ChefsForUkraine are currently serving roughly 300,000 meals daily.

Find the direct link to the chapter you'd like to support at the bottom of this page. You can also access your chapter's fund using the drop-down campaign menu on AWMH's donation page.

If at any point during the fundraising contest (beginning on May 2, 2022 at 9 AM PDT) you’d like to participate on behalf of a Local Chapter, but don’t see your chapter listed, don’t worry! Simply select “World Central Kitchen Ukraine Relief Fund” from the drop-down campaign menu on our main donation page and write in your chapter’s name on the following page in the field under “Dedicate this Donation in Honor or Memory of Someone.” But please note: All write-in donations will be tallied and added to the leaderboard at the conclusion of the competition.

REMEMBER: There will be two winners in this competition: the chapter raising the most money and a randomly selected chapter drawn from all participants. Good luck to all participating!

APRIL 4, 2022

We need your help again! Inspired by the fan club participation from last year, we will be reviving the ever-exciting Local Chapter Fundraising Competition on May 2.

In 2021, local chapters raised nearly $70,000 for Month of Giving. Thanks to your help, and the Foundation’s match, we could donate a total of $200,000 to Feeding America and Direct Relief. It was a tight race, but The Outlaw Corn proved victorious with $10,512 raised!

This year, it’s anyone’s game, with 100% of donations committed to World Central Kitchen’s (WCK) #ChefsForUkraine initiative. The AWMH Foundation and our Boards of Directors and Advisors have also stepped up their match, this time pledging $500,000!

Do you want to participate? Chapter Heads: Keep an eye on your inboxes for more information coming directly to you very soon!
