United Way Irma and Maria Recovery Fund
United Way created the United Way Irma/Maria Recovery Fund to support local communities in the Southeast United States and Caribbean affected by Hurricanes Irma and Maria in 2017. As part of our goal to build stronger communities, and to fight for every person in every community, United Ways in the affected areas may continue to raise money locally and will respond to emerging needs as appropriate.
United Way’s Irma/Maria Recovery fund helped smaller United Ways that did not have the capacity to create their own funds, and provided a single clearinghouse for individual and corporate donors who wanted to impact affected areas.
With your help, United Way raised $30 million for mid- and long-term recovery from national and local funds
