A letter from our CEO Maria Moreno - A Grateful Goodbye: Celebrating Our Achievements Together

Dear reader,  

As I conclude my tenure at USA for IOM, I want to express my profound gratitude for the opportunity to contribute to and lead our organization during a period of significant transformation over the past 12 years. I am immensely proud of what we have achieved together. 

Facilitated by your generosity, this organization that we have developed together has grown beyond what we could imagine, expanding our reach to assist and impact vulnerable people and migrants around the globe.  

We have mobilized action to support numerous impactful projects driven by IOM, from responding to humanitarian crises in various countries to fostering entrepreneurship among migrants and local communities, and supporting victims of human trafficking. Our programs have not only facilitated recovery but have also built resilience across communities. 

Our commitment to excellence is further demonstrated by our dedication to transparency, accountability, and effective governance. The organization has earned recognition for its compliance and transparency, enhancing trust and support from our donors, funders, and partners. This has been crucial in ensuring the sustainability and ongoing positive impact of our work, positioning us as a leader in the nonprofit sector. 

As I step down from my role today, I am confident that USA for IOM will continue to achieve new heights. Our dedicated Board of Directors and Staff are committed to advancing our mission, highlighting critical migration issues, and mobilizing support that yields tangible improvements in the lives of migrants. 

I am grateful for the exceptional partnership with the International Organization for Migration (IOM-UN Migration). Looking forward to, USA for IOM will continue to support IOM and Director General Amy Pope’s vision to position migration as a catalyst for human development and global prosperity. 

I will continue to be an advocate for people on the move, as we together create opportunities for migrants, refugees, and those in crisis, to build on the promise of migration.  The importance of addressing migration issues has never been more critical. 

Thank you for your support and collaboration throughout my journey with USA for IOM.

Best regards,

Maria Moreno

Best regards,
