We believe that organizations that are deeply rooted in local communities are in the best position to provide long-term support for survivors of natural disasters like these. By funding the relief efforts of local organizations, donations to this fund have the potential to build stronger response capacity so that these organizations are better equipped to face future challenges.
The projects listed below are led by vetted GlobalGiving partners responding to the this disaster. You can donate directly to a specific project or to GlobalGiving’s Hurricane Ida Relief Fund and we'll allocate it to where it's needed most. GlobalGiving will post reports about how your donation has been put to use.
Hurricane Ida caused widespread destruction along the U.S. Gulf Coast when it came ashore as one of the most powerful storms to ever hit the country. Your donation to this project will support DAUSA's disaster relief efforts to bring heavy equipment like our rescue boat, backhoe, and chainsaws, along with several Disaster Aid Response Teams (DARTs) to South East Louisiana for clearing and restoring safety.
Hurricane Ida hit the U.S. Gulf Coast as a powerful Category 4 hurricane. With sustained winds of up to 150 MPH, the storm left more than 1 million people without power - most of New Orleans is currently in the dark. World Central Kitchen (WCK) arrived before Hurricane Ida made landfall and is serving fresh, nourishing meals to affected communities and first responders. With no power and extreme heat, we anticipate a large-scale activation to provide the food relief that is so needed.
Hurricane Ida caused widespread destruction across Southeast Louisiana. Second Harvest Food Bank of Greater New Orleans and Acadiana will be providing food, water, and critical supplies for the weeks and months to come. Second Harvest Food Bank is the largest food bank in Louisiana, serving the Louisiana gulf coast, and disaster response is a core part of our mission.
Hurricane Ida made landfall in Louisiana on Sunday, August 29, as a Category 4 storm packing sustained winds of 150 mph-one of the strongest storms ever to hit the mainland United States. International Medical Corps is mobilizing resources and launching a response in the wake of the storm. Our teams stand ready to rapidly identify needs and deploy the staff, supplies and equipment required to support the locally led response efforts.
Our rescue team arrived to Louisiana one day before the storm arrived. The following morning we saw the devastation all around us. The lowest water points we saw were no less than 30-inches. Homes and businesses had their roofs torn away and nearly every power pole had been snapped. The further south we traveled to do rescue, the higher the water: up to nearly 10 feet in some neighborhoods, with people stranded on rooftops. They have no electricity. Our neighbors in Louisiana need our help.
Hurricane Ida made landfall in Louisiana on Sunday, August 29, the 16th anniversary of Hurricane Katrina. This powerful category 4 storm caused heavy rainfall, strong winds, severe flooding, and widespread power outages. Remnants of the storm went on to cause deadly flooding through the Northeast. AHAH has already launched a response program in La Place and Ponchatoula, Louisiana, and we have a second team assessing in the NY/NJ metropolitan area to identify where our help is needed most.
The Mutual Aid Response Network is a group of nearly 6000 Louisiana residents, led by Imagine Water Works, that activates during floods, storms, and other natural and manmade disasters. We activated prior to Hurricane Ida, in an effort to prepare our neighbors for what we knew would be a powerful storm. All donations to this fund will support our relief and recovery efforts in the wake of Hurricane Ida, as well as essential preparation for the rest of hurricane season.
Help Fuel Relief Fund's (FRF) team of disaster responders bring emergency fuel assistance to Louisiana, where Hurricane Ida made landfall as a Category 4 storm on August 29th. Ida's 150 mph winds ravaged southern LA, making it the 5th strongest storm to hit the US on record. It left communities across the state without power and in desperate need of fuel. FRF will give free fuel to first responders, aid agencies, and affected families. 100% of funds raised will support FRF's relief efforts!
SBP is responding to Hurricane Ida in Louisiana and along the Gulf Coast, supporting immediate relief and long-term recovery efforts for impacted families. Your support will help survivors recover more quickly and advance equitable recovery outcomes for low-income communities. For $10 per month, we can provide protective equipment to 12 volunteers. For $25 per month, we can insulate 2 homes. For $50 per month, we can completely reframe a home.
When a disaster strikes, recovery efforts led by people who live and work in affected communities are often overlooked and underfunded. GlobalGiving is changing this reality. Since 2004, we've been shifting decision-making power to crises-affected communities through trust-based grantmaking and support.
We make it easy, quick, and safe to support people on the ground who understand needs in their communities better than anyone else.
They were there long before the news cameras arrived, and they’ll be there long after the cameras leave. They know how to make their communities more resilient to future disasters, and they’re already hard at work. GlobalGiving puts donations and grants directly into their hands. Because the status quo—which gives the vast majority of funding to a few large organizations—doesn’t make sense.
