Duke Doing Good in the Neighborhood launched a new fund to respond to natural disasters that affect our community and state. During the 2018-19 fiscal year, donations to this fund will support Hurricane Florence recovery efforts through the North Carolina Disaster Relief Fund. As donations to the fund build, we will collect and send them quarterly to the NC Disaster Relief Fund.
After the end of the 2018/19 fiscal year, the DGIN Emergency Relief Fund will continue to be a place employees can direct contributions to respond to natural disasters that affect our state. Please join us in supporting our friends and family across North Carolina to address immediate needs as well as long-term recovery.
The NC Disaster Relief Fund is intended for victims who have immediate needs and cannot get assistance from other sources, including government programs, cannot wait until they receive other assistance, or have losses that are not covered by insurance. Local leaders in the affected counties who know their residents best decide how the money is used. Counties will receive allocations from the fund and will determine the specific distributions from those allocations.
