Puerto Rico Disaster Response and Recovery Fund

About

Hurricane Fiona made landfall in Puerto Rico on September 18th, causing ongoing catastrophic flooding, total loss of power and devastation throughout the island. This Fund is comprised of pre-vetted nonprofits providing emergency disaster response to Puerto Ricans in need. Through a single donation to the Fund, you can support multiple organizations’ initiatives to provide short-term and long-term response and recovery. We have initially selected organizations that are on the ground assisting with immediate relief needs, including rescue efforts and medical assistance. The composition of nonprofits in this Fund is subject to change as we learn more about the needs on the ground.
