2020 Disaster Relief Fund

About

The 2020 Atlantic hurricane season was one for the record books before it even officially started. The NOAA (National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration) forecasted as many as 25 named storms and six major hurricanes, more than double the 1981-2010 historical averages. So far, there have been 30 named storms including 13 hurricanes, most recently Eta and Iota which devastated parts of Central America. In addition, wildfires continue to ravage through California, Oregon and Washington State leveling homes and displacing thousands. Support the efforts of our national and international disaster relief partners, so they may actively prepare and respond to all regions affected by natural disasters this year. All gifts to this fund will be matched at 50% per our Giving That Matters employee giving guidelines. One gift to the 2020 Disaster Relief Fund will be split equally among all the organizations in the fund.

Center For Disaster Philanthropy

The CDP Atlantic Hurricane Season Recovery Fund has a focus on medium-and long-term recovery from these storms. This includes rebuilding homes and livelihoods, meeting the needs of more vulnerable populations, supporting mental health services and addressing other urgent challenges identified by the affected communities that arise as recovery efforts progress.

American National Red Cross

The American Red Cross is where people mobilize to help their neighbors—across the street, across the country, and across the world—in emergencies. Each year, in communities large and small, victims of roughly 70,000 disasters turn to neighbors familiar and new—the more than half a million volunteers and 35,000 employees of the Red Cross. Through over 700 locally supported chapters, more than 15 million people gain the skills they need to prepare for and respond to emergencies in their homes, communities and world. Some four million people give blood—the gift of life—through the Red Cross, making it the largest supplier of blood and blood products in the United States. And the Red Cross helps thousands of U.S. service members separated from their families by military duty stay connected.

Convoy Of Hope

As a faith-based, nonprofit organization Convoy of Hope helps people throughout the world by sharing food, water, emergency supplies, agricultural know-how and opportunities that empower people to live independent lives free from poverty, disease and hunger. They are deploying 20 shipments of food, water, cleaning supplies, tarps, hygiene kits and more to the Gulf Coast over the next several weeks as they continue to respond to the ongoing California wildfires.
