NCCF poised to reactivate Disaster Relief Fund

The North Carolina Community Foundation will reactivate its Disaster Relief Fund to support recovery efforts related to Hurricane Florence in our state. Watch this space for details and parameters of the fund, which will be announced once the storm hits and we can assess the geographic needs of our state.

Once reactivated, the North Carolina Community Foundation Disaster Relief Fund will support nonprofits with programs that help hurricane victims in affected communities. All funds raised for the NCCF Disaster Relief Fund will go directly to nonprofit organizations serving the needs of local victims in this region of North Carolina. No portion of the NCCF Disaster Relief Fund will be used for the Foundation’s administrative or operational expenses. The Foundation will also encourage this practice among local recipient agencies.

Donations can be made online through the NCCF website. Checks can be mailed to NCCF at 3737 Glenwood Ave. Suite 460, Raleigh, NC 27612. Please designate your gift for “Disaster Relief” or include a contribution form. Gifts can also be faxed to 919-827-0749. Please call 919-828-4387 or 800-532-1349 for assistance donating. All gifts are tax-deductible.

The NCCF Disaster Relief Fund’s grantmaking strategy generally focuses on mid- to long-term recovery in affected communities.
