Florida’s First Coast Relief Fund was founded in 2016 by Northeast Florida’s largest nonprofit funders to help those affected by natural disasters. One hundred percent of donations to Florida’s First Coast Relief Fund will benefit local nonprofit organizations in Duval, Clay, Baker, St. Johns, Nassau and Putnam counties who provide disaster-relief services. Relief Fund partners include United Way of Northeast Florida, United Way of St. Johns County, The Community Foundation for Northeast Florida, Jewish Federation of Jacksonville and the Jessie Ball duPont Fund.
If you prefer to donate by check, please pay to the order of United Way of Northeast Florida and mail to P.O. Box 41428, Jacksonville, FL 32203-1428. Be sure to note “Florida’s First Coast Relief Fund” on the check.
While collecting items for those in need is often the first natural response to a crisis, monetary donations are the most flexible and effective form of support as they allow organizations to obtain the most-needed resources. If you wish to support Dorian relief efforts by making a gift, we recommend donating to the United Way of Florida Disaster Response Fund, which will work with United Ways in affected areas to distribute funds where they are needed most.
