Donate to the Coastal Bend Disaster Group Recovery Fund

Our thoughts and prayers continue to be with our friends and neighbors impacted by Hurricane Harvey. In December 2015 the Coastal Bend Disaster Recovery Group established a fund with the Foundation as a placeholder for fund-raising for long-term recovery needs in the Coastal Bend region of Texas in the event of a federally declared disaster. The fund may be used for the eleven counties (Aransas, Bee, Brooks, Duval, Jim Wells, Kenedy, Kleberg, Live Oak, Nueces, Refugio, and San Patricio) and is for unmet needs for low income, veterans, elderly and disabled after insurance and federal proceeds are received. Grantees will be recommended by the CBDRG board of directors and approved by CBCF.

Joe McComb established the Mayor’s Hurricane Harvey Fund September 1 to accept donations to be used for immediate community infrastructure and rebuilding needs in Aransas, Bee, Nueces, San Patricio, and Refugio counties. Grantees must be governmental entities or IRS 501(c)(3) organizations.
