Community Foundation Tampa Bay expands funding opportunities for nonprofits following Hurricane Ian

The Community Foundation Tampa Bay has expanded funding opportunities for nonprofits that have been affected by Hurricane Ian.

“A single, unexpected event can dramatically impact their ability to provide crucial services, and Hurricane Ian disrupted most of Florida. Without these crucial nonprofit services, many in our community will suffer,” a statement from the Community Foundation Tampa Bay said.

To address urgent, and unexpected, needs the Community Foundation has expanded the criteria for its Critical Needs List to include support related to Hurricane Ian.

Nonprofits can submit Hurricane Ian-related needs to the Community Foundation Tampa Bay through the Critical Needs Form. The list is updated as nonprofits submit need requests and as funding is secured for projects, the statement said.

The directory can be found here. Click on the button that says “Hurricane Ian related” to see only Hurricane-related requests.

In addition, the Community Foundation is multiplying the impact of donations. The organization has committed to a 1-to-3 match, to multiply the gifts from fundholders and family foundations, when providing support to one of the requests on the Critical Needs List.
