As the strongest storm to hit the Gulf Coast in more than a century, Hurricane Laura left swaths of destruction in Louisiana and Texas and killed at least 16 people. Hundreds of thousands are left without water and power as a result of the storm’s 150 mph winds and extensive flooding. Each of the projects below will support both initial relief efforts and long-term recovery initiatives led by our vetted nonprofit partners in the affected regions.
Donations to GlobalGiving’s Hurricane Laura Relief Fund will be divided among our vetted nonprofit partners and directed to the areas of greatest need. This list of responding organizations and their recovery projects will continue to grow as our partners in the affected areas have the capacity to post projects and updates.
We believe organizations that are deeply rooted in local communities are often in the best position to provide long-term support for disaster survivors. By funding the relief efforts of locally driven organizations, donations to GlobalGiving’s Hurricane Laura Relief Fund have the potential to build stronger disaster-response capacity so that our nonprofit partners in the affected areas are better equipped to face future disasters.
