Hurricane Irma Relief

Hurricane Irma, the category 4 storm that bombarded the entire state of Florida on September 10 & 11, 2017 with extremely damaging winds and an unprecedented storm surge, has left Florida in need of our help. Emergency officials will soon begin working to assess the damage that has already left hundreds of thousands of people without power and shut down municipal services, highways, schools, and community institutions. Rebuilding will be a long and hard process, and many of our donors have already asked what they can do to help.

We encourage our fundholders who may feel so inclined to donate through the fund that they manage using DonorCentral to the Hurricane Relief Fund at the Miami Foundation, or to any of the organizations in this list that they recommend, using the notation – for Hurricane Irma Relief – to earmark the grant from the fund.

Hurricane Harvey Relief

Hurricane Harvey, the category 4 storm that bombarded the Gulf Coast on August 26, 2017 with home-ripping winds and unprecedented damage, has dumped a significant amount of rain in large areas of central Texas. Despite difficult conditions emergency officials are working to assess the damage that has already left hundreds of thousands of people without power or access to food and water and shut down municipal services, highways, schools and community institutions. Flooding has been catastrophic and wide-spread, and rebuilding will be a long and hard process.

We encourage our fundholders who may feel so inclined to donate through the fund that they manage using DonorCentral to the following recommended organizations, using the notation to earmark the grant from the fund.

  1. Greater Houston Community Foundation – “for the Hurricane Harvey Relief Fund”
  2. American Red Cross Headquarters – “to support relief for Hurricane Harvey”
  3. American Red Cross Greater Houston Chapter -“to support relief for Hurricane Harvey”
