You can help in the wake of Hurricane Michael

Erin Dreiling News, Philanthropic Resources 0 Comments

Hurricane Michael made landfall yesterday northwest of Mexico Beach, Florida as a Category 4 storm – the most powerful hurricane on record to ever hit the Florida panhandle. Michael has cut a swath across Alabama and our neighbors in south Georgia, and is heading toward the Carolinas, which are still recovering from Hurricane Florence.

Lives have been lost, families are displaced and people are without food, power and shelter. Cities are flooded, homes and businesses are destroyed and the full scope of the storm is still not yet realized.

Many of our donors want to know how they can help in the wake of Hurricane Michael. Below is a list of organizations working to help those affected. We will continue to add to this list to highlight organizations working on short-term recovery. In the coming days and weeks, we will also share information about how you can help with long-term recovery.

To make a grant, contact your philanthropic officer or log into Donor Central.


We’ve spotlighted local area nonprofits above, but there are also a number of national organizations coordinating relief efforts. You may also be interested in learning about and supporting efforts from the American Red Cross and Save the Children.
