Challenge

Intense rainstorms over several days caused flash flooding, which has destroyed thousands of homes and roads across the Northeast and acres of farmland vital to the livelihood of communities. The risk of extreme flooding is not yet over, as more rainfall is forecasted for the region. Your donation to the Northeast US Flood Relief Fund will meet emergency needs, such as the provision of food, water, and shelter, and provide long-term recovery support in affected communities.

Solution

All donations to this fund will support recovery and relief efforts for people impacted by flooding in Vermont, Massachusetts, New York, and other Northeast US communities. Initially, funding will help first responders meet immediate needs for food, fuel, clean water, hygiene products, and shelter. The fund will then transition to support longer-term recovery efforts run primarily by local, vetted organizations in affected regions in Vermont and elsewhere.

How Your Donation Will Be Used

When you donate to GlobalGiving's Northeast US Flood Relief Fund, your donation will provide:

  • Food, water, and shelter
  • Medical and psychosocial support
  • Economic assistance
  • Long-term support for rebuilding
  • Future risk reduction efforts
  • And more

About GlobalGiving’s Disaster Response

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.
