Hurricane Dorian: How to help with your Giving Fund
As Dorian pulls away from the outer banks of North Carolina and heads northeast, the nation is watching to see if the hurricane is over and what help will be needed by those in the Carolinas and the Bahamas.
In times of natural disasters like this, there is a risk of fraud by people or groups who take advantage of the good intentions of givers who want to help.
But that’s why many givers turn to NCF and use their Giving Funds to mobilize resources for charities providing much-needed help and hope for victims. With support from our researchers at NCF’s national headquarters, our local-office teams in Florida and Georgia have compiled a list of IRS-approved charities that other NCF givers are supporting through their Funds.
Though the storm’s full impact remains uncertain, these charities are actively beginning the work of mobilizing volunteers, supplies, and critical support for Dorian’s victims.
