Htee Moo Fund

KOM celebrated 15 years in 2023!

Since 2008, we’ve been honored to be a part of the community of refugees from Burma as they make their home in Minnesota. Through many changes in the past decade, KOM has been a reliable place for thousands of refugees to find help today and plan for a bright future. Your consistent support enables us to innovate our programming as we respond to new challenges and opportunities ahead.

In Karen, “Htee Moo” is a phrase describing the headwaters of a stream–an everlasting source of water that gives life to those around it. To celebrate our tenth anniversary, we launched the Htee Moo Fund to invite you to join us in building a reliable source of support for refugees in Minnesota. This new giving opportunity allows you to set up a monthly gift using your credit card on our secure online platform. You choose the amount that you would like to give each month, and you can change or stop your recurring gift at any time.

What can your monthly gift do?

Here are just a few examples:

  • $5/month can provide a grocery card for a family with a financial emergency.
  • $10/month can provide a loom and yarn for one student to weave a traditional Karen shirt
  • $25/month can provide transportation and supplies for 10 parents to attend parenting classes
  • $50/month can cover training fees and materials for one person to earn a certificate in interpreting

In-Kind Donations

KOM welcomes hosts for collection drives, as our office has limited space to accept in-kind donations. Some in-kind donations are accepted on an as-needed basis.

Volunteers are greatly valued and appreciated at KOM because they increase the support our clients receive. They provide extra support to youth in our afterschool programming, students in our career training pathways, assist our staff with walk-in services, and more. Learn more about volunteering.
