Foundations Supporting Relief Efforts
United Way of Southeast Louisiana is here before, during, and after disasters. When a disaster strikes, your gift helps families get back in their homes, rebuild schools and businesses, and give our vulnerable neighbors the care they need. The United Way Disaster Relief Fund supports recovery and ongoing rebuilding efforts related to hurricanes Delta and Laura. All proceeds will fund immediate relief efforts already underway and long-term rebuilding and community grants to partner organizations providing direct services to assist with recovery.
The Community Foundation of Southwest Louisiana is raising money from people who want to help their neighbors in Southwest Louisiana return to the lives they’d known before this disaster struck. The contributions they receive will be granted to nonprofits that have proven they don’t flinch when catastrophe comes. At the start, the disaster grants pay for food, shelter, medicine, and all the other necessities that help stabilize those in most immediate need. Then the grants shift to making grants for long-term recovery and, perhaps more importantly, for making people and places more resilient for the next time disaster visits.
