On November 9, 2022, Hurricane Nicole made landfall near Freeport, Bahamas as a Tropical Storm and then in Florida on November 10 as a Category 1 hurricane. It has caused significant damage and at least four people were killed in Florida. Homes have been seriously damaged and thousands have been left without power. A number of these communities only recently came out of Hurricane Ian, a devastating storm that hit Florida barely two months ago.
Hurricane Nicole will cause long-term displacement and leave significant damage in several communities. Your donation to the Hurricane Nicole Relief Fund will meet emergency needs, such as the provision of food, water, and shelter, and it will provide long-term support to affected communities, including in Florida and the Bahamas.
All donations to this fund will support relief and recovery efforts in storm-affected communities across the eastern Florida and the Bahamas. Initially, funds will help first responders meet survivors' immediate needs for food, fuel, clean water, hygiene products, and shelter. The fund will later transition to support longer-term recovery efforts run primarily by local, vetted organizations in the communities affected.

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.
