FAQs

How will the money be used?
  • The Community Foundation will work with nonprofit and government stakeholders to ensure that funds flow quickly to those most in need and establish safeguards to secure proper distribution of the funds.  This will be a two-step process:
    1. Short-term support: funds for immediate relief will be distributed to food, shelter, animal, health, and/or to large scale relief agencies to provide such support.

    2. Long-term support: funds for long-term relief will be distributed towards rebuilding and recovery efforts to reestablish residency or for relocation.
