Hurricane Ian Major Donors

The Volunteer Florida Foundation administers the Florida Disaster Fund, Florida’s private fund established to assist Florida’s communities as they respond to and recover during times of emergency or disaster.


The fund is activated based on the declaration of a disaster by the Governor and approval by the Foundation Board of Directors (or its Executive Committee) to begin a fundraising effort.

Use of Funds

During and after the collection process and as immediate and longer-term needs are identified, the Executive Director of the Foundation, in discussion with staff and executive committee of the board of directors, will evaluate how to distribute the funds to non-profit entities between the two types of available grants.

The list below represents donors who have given $20,000 or more to the Fund. A special thank you to all the businesses, organizations and individuals who donated. You have been instrumental in getting Floridians back on their feet.
