Support the road to recovery
In the wake of a crisis, whether natural or man-made, individuals are displaced, homes are damaged, businesses are disrupted, and lives are changed. The Virginia Disaster Relief Fund is a state-managed fund that supplements the critical work of nonprofit, faith-based and local long-term recovery groups.
Why should I donate?
When the public supports voluntary organizations with financial contributions, it helps ensure a steady flow of important services to the people in need after a disaster.
How is the money distributed?
Fund proceeds will be distributed to local long-term recovery groups, members of the Virginia Voluntary Organizations Active in Disaster and other non-profit and faith-based organizations as a grant.
Many of these groups work directly with individuals and families following a disaster.
WHAT PROJECTS WILL THIS FUND?
The Virginia Disaster Relief Fund benefits projects that include: repair or rebuilding of underinsured dwellings, transportation assistance, replacing essential household items, helping renters establish new rental residence, temporary living expenses while recovering from loss, and more.
HOW CAN I DONATE?
If you want to help, send checks made payable to the Treasurer of Virginia with “Virginia Disaster Relief Fund” noted in the memo line to:
P.O. Box 1971
Richmond, VA 23218-1971
Or make a financial gift directly to one of the organizations supporting disaster relief in Virginia.
Financial gifts made to voluntary organizations, funds and foundations are managed and allocated by those entities. Virginia Voluntary Organizations Active in Disasters and the Commonwealth of Virginia are not involved in how voluntary organizations, funds, and foundations manage or distribute financial contributions.
