Support victims of Hurricane Dorian with your Vanguard Charitable philanthropic account

September 5, 2019

Hurricane Dorian, the first major hurricane of the 2019 storm season, slammed into the Bahamas as a powerful Category 5 storm. The storm lingered over the Bahamas for 40 hours, and its powerful winds and heavy downpours have caused unprecedented flooding and devastated wide swaths of the country. Rescue workers are working quickly to assist individuals and families trapped in their houses, while organizations are organizing aid and relief efforts to help all those affected by record-setting Dorian.

Communities from Florida through North Carolina have also been affected by the storm as it moves north. You can help families and communities affected by Hurricane Dorian in the Bahamas and the United States today. The highly rated organizations included in our list below have pre-positioned resources to deliver food, emergency shelter, medical care, and other critical items to people impacted by this storm. 

In partnership with Charity Navigator, Vanguard Charitable has confirmed that the highly rated organizations in the table below are supporting Hurricane Dorian relief efforts, and we have expedited the granting process so that your contribution can be put to use as quickly as possible.
