How to support Hurricane Ian relief efforts

Sep 29, 2022


On September 28, Hurricane Ian made landfall on Florida’s west coast as a Category 4 hurricane. The storm’s impact affected more than 2.5 million Americans who were under evacuation orders before the hurricane’s arrival on Wednesday. With Hurricane Ian anticipated to become one the most expensive storms in U.S. history, there is certainly a need for support right now.  


In partnership with Charity Navigator, we are providing a list of highly rated nonprofit organizations that are responding to the situation in Florida. The nonprofit community's response will be ongoing, and as such, this list is not meant to be exhaustive.
