Hurricane Ian Disaster Relief and Recovery Fund


Hurricane Ian, a powerful Category 4 storm, made landfall in Florida on September 28th. Millions of Floridians were urged to evacuate and thousands are left without electricity, running water, and access to emergency medical care and supplies. Hurricane Ian's high winds and catastrophic flooding have caused devastation to several Florida communities, and maximum recovery efforts are underway. The organizations selected for this Fund are currently on the ground in Florida organizing direct relief efforts and providing shelter, medical care, food, and supplies to survivors of the storm. The composition of nonprofits in this Fund is subject to change as we learn more about the needs on the ground.
