The Mississippi Community Disaster Relief and Recovery Fund was established to attract philanthropic investments from outside of Mississippi to provide help to Mississippians. Although the COVID-19 pandemic wasn’t a disaster in the traditional sense, the Community Foundation’s grants committee recognized the need to support nonprofits delivering food and offering housing assistance to Mississippians to help them recover.
It’s impossible to know when a natural disaster will strike. But whenever it does and wherever it takes place, we know that you are ready to show your support–for Mississippi.
We realize our friends across Mississippi may need our assistance in the event of a disaster, which is why we’ve set up a convenient way for you to give. Donations to local relief and recovery will be collected and distributed in conjunction with the community-based recovery committee set up in each county during times of disaster.
Know your dollars will go to serve local people with local needs now—where and when the need is great.
