Hurricane Fiona has caused widespread destruction and catastrophic flooding in multiple locations, killing at least 16 people, cutting off access to running water, and spurring island-wide power outages in Puerto Rico near the five-year anniversary of Hurricane Maria. Communities in the Dominican Republic and Canada are also facing major damage and displacement after Fiona hit. Your donation to the Hurricane Fiona Relief Fund will provide immediate and long-term relief in affected communities.
Most people in Puerto Rico are without power after Hurricane Fiona and uncertain when it will be restored, and thousands are displaced in shelters. Many Puerto Ricans fear months without electricity, as happened when Hurricane Maria hit. Your donation to the Hurricane Fiona Relief Fund will meet emergency needs, such as the provision of food, water, and shelter, and provide long-term support in affected communities, including in the Dominican Republic, Guadeloupe, and Canada.
All donations to this fund will support relief and recovery efforts in Puerto Rico and other affected communities. These efforts will be led by GlobalGiving's extensive network of vetted partners in the region. Initially, the fund will help first responders meet survivors' immediate needs for food, fuel, clean water, hygiene products, and shelter. Then, this fund will transition to support longer-term recovery efforts run by local, vetted local organizations.

When a disaster strikes, recovery efforts led by people who live and work in affected communities are often overlooked and underfunded. GlobalGiving is changing this reality. Since 2004, we've been shifting decision-making power to crises-affected communities through trust-based grantmaking and support.
We make it easy, quick, and safe to support people on the ground who understand needs in their communities better than anyone else.
They were there long before the news cameras arrived, and they’ll be there long after the cameras leave. They know how to make their communities more resilient to future disasters, and they’re already hard at work. GlobalGiving puts donations and grants directly into their hands. Because the status quo—which gives the vast majority of funding to a few large organizations—doesn’t make sense.
