Hurricane Dorian Disaster Response and Recovery Fund

About

Hurricane Dorian made landfall in Florida, North Carolina, parts of the Eastern Seaboard, and Nova Scotia, but peaked as a Category 5 hurricane while hovering over the Bahamas for more than 2 days, leaving utter devastation in its wake. The Bahamian government is estimating that 3 out of 4 homes have been damaged or destroyed, with more than 70,000 people now homeless, thousands more missing, and a rising death toll. Bright Funds has established the Hurricane Dorian Disaster Response and Recovery Fund, which is comprised of pre-vetted nonprofits providing on-the-ground disaster response in the region. We have selected organizations that are on the ground assisting with immediate relief needs, including rescue efforts, medical assistance, and providing food/water. Through a single donation to the Fund, you can support multiple organizations’ initiatives to provide short-term and long-term response and recovery. The composition of nonprofits in this Fund is subject to change as we learn more about the most pressing needs of those affected on the ground.
