Virginia Flood Relief Fund 2022

Summary

At least 100 homes have been damaged after flooding caused by torrential rains swept through rural communities in the US state of Virginia. Each passing hour reports of the damage grow, as more than a dozen search-and-rescue teams canvass difficult-to-reach areas. GlobalGiving is working closely with our partners on the ground to get emergency support to impacted communities in this time of need.

Challenge

Between July 11th and 12th, historic amounts of rain fell in Buchanan County, Virginia causing mass destruction and displacing hundreds of people. This flooding has also disrupted key power grids, leaving communities without the ability to communicate and destroying more than one hundred homes. Based on our experience, GlobalGiving has learned that it is vital to get funds to locally-led nonprofits that can respond to the community needs in both the short and long-term.

Solution

All donations to the Virginia Flood Relief Fund will support flood relief and recovery efforts in Virginia. Initially, the fund helps first responders meet survivors' immediate needs for food, fuel, clean water, medicine, and shelter. As needs emerge, we will support longer-term recovery efforts run by local, vetted organizations in the impacted area.

How Your Donation Will Be Used

When you donate to GlobalGiving's Virginia Flood Relief Fund, your donation will be used to:

  • Provide food, water, and emergency medical supplies to people
  • Support temporary relief and emergency supplies for displaced families
  • Meet other needs that emerge

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.
