HURRICANE DORIAN RELIEF EFFORTS: GIVE NOW

Hurricane Dorian has devastated several parts of the Northern Bahamas, including the Abaco Islands and Grand Bahama Island. Relief and recovery efforts have mobilized to get desperately needed help to hard-hit communities there and elsewhere. We encourage you to support their critical work.

Click here to see a list of relief efforts for the Bahamas and affected communities.

While Miami-Dade County has not received any major, direct weather impacts, The Miami Foundation’s Hurricane Relief Fund remains activated to support any long-term recovery or resilience needs, including local support for those displaced by the storm. We invite you to help.

    Good morning, first if all, thank you for leading the charge in supporting our community as it begins to rebuild after Hurricane Irma. Will these funds be available as part of a grant program (with an application process), or will they be administered and distributed internally by the Foundation?

    Hi Priscilla,

    Thanks for your question. Yes, you may donate to a specific relief fund that meets the needs you’re interested in supporting. We’ll then work with our local partners to identify nonprofits driving recovery in that area, and make sure they receive the support they need to continue their work.

    Hi, I have a small charity I run on my own in NJ. We are receiving loads of food donations among other items to put together Blessing Bags.
    I’m trying to find people in need. Can you please email me. I am willing to drive all of these donations down to you.

    I have about 1000$ worth of clothes and water. I’m just a average citizen who was born on the island and has family stuck there trying to help. My neighborhood did a little fundraiser for me and I want to get it to the island as soon as possible. Also had Gatorade sponsor a sporting event here and the gave me 700 of there protein bars I’d like to donate. I will send this via mail if I get a good address. Just trying to do my part.

    I gave to the U.S. Caribbean Strong Relief Fund – what percentage of those funds will be directed toward the Miami Foundation’s administrative/operational costs, versus being spent directly on programs, supplies, materials, food, etc. on the impacted islands?

    I work for an organizational company and a lot of peopleI have been working with would like to donate lightly worn clothing.

    I have just learned about the Walmart/Puerta Rico matching funds, has the full million dollar amount been used yet?

    Posted at 19:15h, 14 October

    Hi! I will be sending a donation check for the WALMART PUERTO RICO RELIEF fund. My company also matches $1 for $1 but I need to know the organization’s tax ID, name, address, phone number and a contact name. Can you provide that information?
    Thanks,
    Elba

    Your ads state that Walmart is matching 5 million in donations for Puerto Rico, however, your donation page states that a 1 million match has been met & has ended.. By the way, I had a very difficult time finding your “donation page”. If the 5 million match is still available, could you please contact me, with a ‘link’. Thanking you in advance for your time & attention. Sincerely, Carol Wagner (clmdc1945@gmail.com)

    I am very impressed with the commitment from Walmart to match $2 for every $1 donated. Community Health Centers in the US are interested in helping our sister health centers on the islands of Puerto Rico and their communities in particular. Can you tell me if there is any way that we can tag donations to be for a specific purpose or destination, ie Community and Migrant Health Centers?
