West Virginia Flood Relief Fund

by GlobalGiving's Disaster Recovery Network
West Virginia Flood Relief Fund


Flash flooding has devastated communities in West Virginia, destroyed homes, and left at least 24 people dead. This fund will go to support medium and long-term recovery for the impacted communities.

monthly donors


At least 23 people were killed after 8 to 10 inches of rain caused flash floods in Greenbrier, Kanawha, Jackson, and Ohio counties in West Virginia. More than 500 homes have been destroyed or damaged by flood waters.


All donations to this fund will support recovery and relief efforts in the region. This fund will help fund medium and long-term needs in the communities to help them rebuild and recover from this tragedy. This will be done by directly supporting locally-driven relief efforts that augment the response of state and federal agencies.

Long-Term Impact

We believe that organizations that are deeply rooted in local communities are often in the best position to provide long-term support for disaster victims. By funding the relief efforts of local organizations, donations to this fund have the potential to build stronger disaster-response capacity so that these organizations are better equipped to face future disasters. GlobalGiving will post reports about how funds have been used and will email these reports to donors and subscribers.
