Disaster Relief

The Community Foundation occasionally activates our Disaster Support Fund in support of communities affected by natural disasters, both locally and across the state. Donations to the fund will provide both immediate relief and support rebuilding and recovery efforts in the aftermath of the disaster.

Grants from the fund will be distributed to nonprofit agencies and organizations directly assisting individuals to meet needs as they arise and to deploy resources where they are most needed.

The Community Foundation has waived all administrative fees and 100% of your donation will be used to make grants to agencies supporting emergency assistance, health and human services, short-term housing/rental assistance, reimbursement of equipment and supplies, and other immediate relief or long-term recovery support for affected residents.

Those wishing to contribute to the fund can:
