Using your Vanguard Charitable account to support recovery efforts in the Midwest from severe weather events and tornadoes

June 10, 2019

Across the Midwest, communities are recovering from nearly two weeks of severe weather, which produced more than 100 tornadoes across Kansas, Missouri, and Ohio. In addition to the widespread damage to property and infrastructure, these storms have claimed the lives of several individuals. Recovery crews are working quickly to clear debris to begin assessing the damage. Many individuals and families in communities affected by these powerful storms remain without power, and access to food, shelter, and medical care may be limited. 

Vanguard Charitable has confirmed that the organizations in the table below are supporting relief efforts for areas affected by these severe weather events and has expedited the granting process so that your contribution can be put to use as quickly as possible.
