The Collier Community Foundation has reactivated its Collier Comes Together Hurricane Fund to assist Hurricane Ian victims. Activation of the fund allows CCF to act quickly to ensure immediate aid is provided where needed most. 100% of donations are distributed to area nonprofits serving victims and their families without administrative fees.
The fund’s purpose is to first provide immediate relief to those affected and the nonprofits that support the victims in the aftermath of a crisis. It also serves to assure donors’ support will reach its intended cause. After immediate needs are met such as food, water and shelter, the focus turned to long-term needs such as housing and transportation.
Your donations allow us to act quickly! Community relief grants started on September 30th – 2 days after Hurricane Ian hit. The Collier Community Foundation has already granted and/or committed over $7 million for relief and recovery efforts including housing repair and rebuild. Several million in relief funds are also earmarked for repairing and rebuilding homes, lifting home sites to prepare for future weather disasters, and relief efforts in neighboring counties still struggling to recover.
