United Way of Florida's Disaster Recovery Fund
Florida United Ways work together every day to meet the needs of our individual communities, as well as the entire state. When Hurricane Ian hit Florida, our thoughts immediately turned to concern for our families, friends, neighbors, and colleagues. Now we are #United4Florida to help the communities devastated by the storm respond and recover. No matter where you live, a local United Way will be there to organize resources, connect those in need with those who can help, and ensure our neighbors have the support they need to recover.
Contributions to the UWOF Disaster Fund will be directed to Florida communities most impacted by a disaster of any kind. One donation can be made to benefit multiple communities or directed to a specific need or location/county. To direct your gift to a specific location/county, be sure to note that in the "Note for the Donor Scroll" section of the linked donation page. Make your gift by using a credit card and clicking the red “Make a Donation” or by sending a check to the address below. Again, specific requests can be made by including the information in the memo line.
