Where does the money from a disaster fund go?

All donations to this fund will support relief and recovery efforts in the region(s) affected by this specific disaster. The fund will initially help first responders conduct search and rescue operations and meet survivors' urgent needs, including the provision of shelter, medical care, food, and clean water. Once initial relief work is complete, money from this fund will be allocated by GlobalGiving for longer-term recovery efforts—largely led by local organizations. All GlobalGiving’s nonprofit partners are vetted.
