Hurricane Dorian Disaster Response and Recovery Fund


Hurricane Dorian, which hit the northern Bahamas as one of the strongest Atlantic hurricanes on record, has caused extreme destruction on the Grand Bahama and Abaco Islands and has killed at least five people there. Evacuations have been ordered for parts of Florida, Georgia and South Carolina as the Hurricane continues to move northward toward the U.S. Draper and Bright Funds have 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. Through a single tax deductible donation to the Fund, you can support multiple organizations’ initiatives to provide short- and long-term response and recovery to those affected by Hurricane Dorian. 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.

Direct Relief

Direct Relief is a medical relief organization, active in all 50 states and 80 countries, with a mission to improve the health and lives of people affected by poverty or emergency situations. Direct relief is working closely with the Bahamian Ministry of Health, large-scale regional organizations, and other humanitarian groups to deliver vital aid to those affected by Hurricane Dorian.

Center For Disaster Philanthropy

The Center for Disaster Philanthropy (CDP) recently launched its 2019 Hurricane Season Recovery Fund. The fund, much like CDP’s other funds, will focus on medium- and long-term recovery needs, which may include rebuilding homes and livelihoods; meeting the needs of vulnerable populations; supporting mental health services; and addressing pressing needs that will arise after immediate relief needs are met.

All Hands and Hearts

All Hands and Hearts effectively and efficiently addresses the immediate and long-term needs of communities impacted by natural disasters. We communicate directly with local leaders and community members and then deploy our unique model of engaging volunteers to enable direct impact, helping to build safer, more resilient schools, homes and infrastructure.

Through volunteer and community engagement, we focus on helping families recover faster after natural disasters using our “smart response” strategy. In doing so, we strengthen both our volunteers and communities in which we serve.

Team Rubicon

Team Rubicon utilizes the skills and experiences of military veterans and first responders to rapidly deploy emergency response teams. Team Rubicon has teams deployed across the U.S. and around the world to provide immediate relief to those impacted by disasters and humanitarian crises. Team Rubicon has sent a team to the Bahamas to provide emergency medical services to people impacted by Hurricane Dorian.

International Medical Corps

The International Medical Corps provides training and delivers healthcare and related services to those affected by conflict, natural disaster or disease. The organization trains people in their own communities, providing them the skills needed to recover, to chart their own path to self-reliance and to shape their own future as they become effective First Responders. The International Medical Corps has sent medical teams to the Bahamas to provide medical care to Bahamians in need.
