The Central Texas community continues to grieve the devastation caused by Hurricane Harvey. As fellow Texans, we offer our deepest sympathies and the hope of resilience.

It will take time and resources to understand the true scope of damages to both lives and property. We know that, in the midst of staggering immediate need, plans for rebuilding our communities must be identified.

Austin Community FoundationCapital FactoryEntrepreneurs Foundation of Central Texas, LiveOak Ventures, MFI Foundation, and United Way for Greater Austin have teamed up to coordinate the efforts of the Central Texas philanthropic community. Through the Central Texas Long-Term Hurricane Recovery Fund, we are committed to supporting affected communities on the long journey ahead.  In the coming months, we will work with agency partners on the ground to identify the areas of greatest need. 

Members of our local philanthropic community have come together with an initial match of $200,000, increasing the impact we can make together. All donations to the fund will be deployed over the next several years through strategic grants supporting long-term recovery efforts. Preference will be shown to organizations working in under resourced communities.    

The road to recovery is long, but it is no match for the strength, compassion, and grit of Texans. With your help, we will rebuild to make a greater Texas for everyone.
