Our Crisis Response Fund enables the Foundation to respond to unpredictable and devastating circumstances throughout the world.
We provide one-time grants to organizations on the frontline of disaster recovery, groups addressing critical policy reforms, and efforts to mobilize aide or community action. RPDFF recognizes that crises are not planned and responds to needs as they arise. In the past, the Foundation has provided support for the Flint water crisis, Syrian refugee crisis, California wildfires, and the disaster caused by Hurricane Maria, among others. The Foundation supports US-based 501c(3) organizations working in communities located within our target cities. At this time, grant applications are considered through an invite-only process.
