With winds in excess of 160 mph, Hurricane Maria had a destructive path in the Caribbean just weeks after Hurricane Irma. Each of the projects below will support Hurricane Maria and Hurricane Irma relief efforts led by GlobalGiving’s vetted nonprofit partners in the region. You can donate directly to a specific project, or you can give to GlobalGiving’s Puerto Rico & Caribbean Hurricane Relief Fund.
Donations to GlobalGiving’s Puerto Rico & Caribbean Hurricane Relief Fund will be divided among our vetted nonprofit partners on this list relative to where the need is greatest. 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 victims. By funding the relief efforts of locally driven organizations, donations to GlobalGiving’s Puerto Rico & Caribbean Hurricane 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.
