Summary

Hurricane Michael was the first category 5 hurricane to hit the United States since 1992 and caused widespread damage and power outages in communities across Florida's Panhandle. From providing emergency food, water, and fuel to residents in the immediate aftermath of the storm to now supporting ongoing, long-term recovery, all donations to this fund will exclusively support recovery efforts for this disaster.

Challenge

Hurricane Michael's 160 mph winds and torrential rains damaged homes, businesses, hospitals, and shut down major roadways. Hurricane Michael made landfall near Mexico Beach, Florida on October 10, 2018, and claimed more than 59 lives in the United States.

Solution

All donations to this fund will support Hurricane Michael recovery and relief efforts in the United States. Initially, the fund helped first responders meet immediate needs for food, fuel, clean water, hygiene products, and shelter. Now that initial relief work is complete, this fund has transitioned to support longer-term recovery efforts run by local, vetted organizations.

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.
