Update (Friday Sept. 29, 11 AM Central Time): Due to the extent and grave nature of the damage in Puerto Rico from Hurricane Maria, we are researching beneficiary organizations to help those affected there. At this time all Hurricane 2017 Recovery donations are being directed to Puerto Rico. Donations will continue to Puerto Rico recovery efforts unless a new hurricane occurs which necessitates support elsewhere.
Fall 2017 has brought multiple highly damaging hurricanes to the United States and the Caribbean, among them Hurricanes Harvey, Irma, and most recently, Maria. The reports emerging from Puerto Rico indicate that conditions in the US territory are dire, and the avenues to provide critical resources like drinking water and food are limited.
Foundation Beyond Belief is now collecting funds to support recovery from all 2017 hurricanes as there is a continued threat of named storms in the Atlantic this season. These funds will be used for beneficiary grants and/or for the Humanist Disaster Recovery (HDR) program to enable Teams deployments in the affected areas, with the goal of maximizing donated dollars to provide the most effective recovery assistance.For those who have already contributed to the individual Harvey or Irma recovery campaigns, your donations will still be designated according to your wishes.
Hurricane Harvey: Donations are being used to provide grants to beneficiaries and support HDR Teams deployment in the Houston area. A very small percentage may be used to cover FBB staffing costs during Hurricane Harvey that were well above normal budgeted hours.
Hurricane Irma: Beneficiaries are being researched and vetted for grants. As the situation on the ground becomes more stable and damage is more fully assessed, funds may also be used to support HDR Teams deployment.
Help aid recovery efforts by donating now. FBB thanks the American Humanist Association for supporting this Humanist Disaster Recovery effort.
Foundation Beyond Belief relies on the generosity of donors. Your contribution supports the Foundation's operations and programs, and we deeply appreciate your generosity.
