Grant Writing Advice and Tips: The Grant Helpers Blog

Rebuilding After A Disaster

Posted by Carol Timms on Tue, Oct 23, 2018 @ 16:10 PM

Immediately after a disaster, governmental agencies, volunteers and non-profits respond en masse to the affected area. rebuildThese entities provide essential health and human services. In turn, granting organizations support these first responders by offering grants for general expenses and specific special interests.

The Grant Helpers appreciates the efforts of the first responders. To say Thank You, we'd like to offer you a half-price Opportunity Search in January to replenish your budget. The cost for an Opportunity Search is usually $250 but for organizations assisting our neighbors affected by Hurricane Florence, Hurricane Michael or the wildfires in the Western US we are offering it for $125. The Opportunity Search will identify potential funders to whom you can apply for grant funds. It is our job to sift through many possible funding sources as listed in the databases to which we subscribe. After reviewing thousands of possible funding sources, we will provide you information on 3 who would be an excellent fit for your organization. We know you’re busy now serving the public so contact us in early January to receive this special price.

 The following are some of the organizations offering grants to support those who help:

 Support for Non-Profits

The Astellas USA Foundation will provide immediate response when needed. 

Both Walgreen’s Charitable Donations Program and Wells Fargo Charitable Contributions Program will support disaster relief programs across the nation.

Animals

Both Banfield and PetSmart Charities will support programs designed to aid animals during natural disasters. 

Schools and Libraries

Dollar General’s Beyond Words Program and the Laura Bush Foundation for America’s Libraries provide funds to help school and public libraries rebuild and restock after a disaster.

School Football Programs

USA Football, in conjunction with the NFL Foundation, provides equipment donations to youth and high school football organizations that have been affected by floods, earthquakes, fire, other natural disasters, and theft. 

Farmers

Farm Aid supports family farmers in crisis. Contact them through their hotline at 1-800-Farm-Aid or visit their website.
