Challenge

Hurricane Michael's powerful winds and torrential rains damaged homes, businesses, hospitals, and shut down major roadways. Moving towards communities in Georgia, North and South Carolina, Tropical Storm Michael has left hundreds of thousands of residents without power. Several of GlobalGiving's local nonprofit partners are responding 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 Michael 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 initial relief work is complete, this fund will transition to support longer-term any necessary recovery efforts run by local, vetted organizations responding to this 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.
