The Columbus Foundation Disaster Relief Fund is mobilized to support ongoing relief efforts in response to a local, national, or international disaster. Through disaster relief efforts, the Foundation's Community Research and Grants Management team identifies the most effective organizations that are often on site as the first and last responders.
Hurricane Dorian, a Category 5 hurricane, devastated the Bahamas, stalling for days over the islands and causing many fatalities and widespread catastrophic damage. Relief efforts are underway, but it will be a long and arduous process of rebuilding and healing, with many individuals still missing, and tens of thousands left homeless.
The Columbus Foundation has mobilized The Columbus Foundation Disaster Relief Fund to help you provide support for those affected. All donations to this fund will benefit the American Red Cross, Grand Bahama Disaster Relief, and Salvation Army.
