Responding To Hurricane Irma
“After taking a destructive path through the Caribbean, Hurricane Irma made landfall in the Florida Keys on Sunday afternoon. It will continue to wreak havoc as it moves through the state of Florida. States of Emergency has also been issued in Alabama, Georgia, North Carolina and South Carolina. An incredibly powerful storm, its full impact has yet to be realized.”
Colorado Association of Funders’ national network, United Philanthropy Forum, has compiled a list of responses, news items, resources and programming for philanthropy in response to Hurricane Irma. Click here to see the list.
Florida Philanthropic Network has also compiled a list of ways to serve, ways to give, and disaster philanthropy resources here.
