Challenge

Hurricane Florence is forecast bring devastating floods, storm surges, and hurricane force winds to the Carolinas. Preparation efforts are underway to deal with this damage. Several of GlobalGiving's local nonprofit partners are preparing to respond and have asked us to help fund any necessary relief and recovery efforts on the ground.

Solution

All donations to this fund will support Hurricane Florence preparation, recovery, and relief efforts in the United States. Initially, the fund will help first responders meet immediate needs for food, fuel, clean water, hygiene products, and shelter. Once any initial relief work is complete, this fund will transition to support any necessary longer-term recovery efforts run by local, vetted organizations responding to this forecasted disaster.

Long-Term Impact

We believe that organizations that are deeply-rooted in local communities are best positioned to provide long-term support for survivors of natural disasters like hurricanes. By funding the relief efforts of local organizations, there's potential to build stronger response capacity so that these organizations are better equipped to face future challenges. GlobalGiving will post reports about how funds have been used and will email these reports to donors.
