After Hurricane Ian
Hurricane Ian left a path of destruction across Florida, killing more than 100 people and leaving hundreds of thousands more in extremely challenging circumstances. According to FEMA, recovery and cleanup from Ian will take some time. Our team here at the Minneapolis Foundation has put together a list of organizations for those looking for ways to help Floridians in need.
Four Places to Give:
- The Gulf Coast Community Foundation’s Hurricane Ian Disaster Relief Fund will support those most devastated by the hurricane, focusing on health and human services needs in the areas south of Venice and east to Arcadia.
- The Charlotte County Community Foundation has activated the Charlotte County Disaster Relief Fund, which will provide financial assistance and resources to Charlotte County residents.
- The Collier Community Foundation has reactivated the Collier Comes Together Hurricane Fund to benefit nonprofit relief efforts and programs in southwestern Florida.
- The Southwest Florida Community Foundation (Collaboratory) has partnered with United Way and activated its SWFL Emergency Relief Fund.
