We hope everyone made it through Irma safely.
The Community Foundation is here to help find solutions to the challenges Irma brought for our partners, fundholders, and grantees.
We are the convener that can work with funders and community partners to co-invest funds for maximum response and effectiveness.
With that, we have activated the Hurricane Assistance Fund. The fund will support longer term recovery and rebuilding efforts in south Florida as we uncover the true effects of the storm in the days ahead.
This fund will be used to grant funds to nonprofit organizations in Palm Beach and Martin Counties that have specific needs caused by storm conditions concerning interruption of services or facility repair and restoration. It is intended to support both immediate and long-term relief, and is dedicated to filling gaps not met by local and federal efforts.
Nonprofit organizations will be able to apply for funds from the Hurricane Assistance Fund following the storm. They may apply on our Gifts Online platform at that time HERE.
As a part of our service to the community, the Foundation will not collect an administrative fee for the Hurricane Assistance Fund.
