Deadly tornado outbreaks have hit communities across more than a dozen states since the beginning of 2023. More than 30 people have been killed and thousands have been left homeless, including in places like Rolling Fork, Mississippi. Your donation to the Midwest and Southeast US Tornado Relief Fund will meet emergency needs and help survivors recover in the most affected communities.
Hundreds of tornadoes have destroyed homes and caused significant damage in several states, including Alabama, Arkansas, Georgia, Kentucky, Mississippi, and Tennessee. The tornadoes also hit in cities like Little Rock and Louisville. Millions of people across the Midwest and Southeast are still under threats of severe storms that could lead to more tornadoes.
All donations made to this fund will support relief and recovery efforts in Alabama, Arkansas, Georgia, Kentucky, Mississippi, and Tennessee, and other impacted states. Initially, the fund will assist first responders in meeting the immediate needs of survivors, such as food, fuel, clean water, hygiene products, and shelter. After completing the initial relief work, this fund will shift its focus towards supporting longer-term recovery efforts run by local, vetted organizations.

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.
