Nonprofit organizations can apply for funds from the Community Foundation’s Hurricane Assistance Fund. The fund will be used for grant funds to nonprofit organizations in Palm Beach and Martin counties that have specific needs caused by storm conditions concerning interruption of services or facility repair and restoration. It is intended to support both immediate and long-term relief and is dedicated to filling gaps not met by local and federal efforts.

As a part of its service to the community, the foundation will not collect an administrative fee for the Hurricane Assistance Fund.

“We are ready to help our nonprofits recover and rebuild. Together with our donors, partners and other funds, we can serve the needs of our community after this difficult time. We are better together,” said Bradley Hurlburt, president and CEO of the Community Foundation.
