About the Fund 

Florida’s First Coast Relief Fund was founded in 2016 by Northeast Florida’s largest nonprofit funders to help those affected by Hurricane Matthew. Relief Fund partners re-activated the Relief Fund in 2017 for disaster relief, including hurricane Irma and Maria recovery efforts. 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 FloridaUnited Way of St. Johns CountyThe Community Foundation for Northeast FloridaJewish Federation of Jacksonville and the Jessie Ball duPont Fund.
