Hurricane Harvey & Irma Relief

Hurricane Harvey has taken a catastrophic toll on Houston Texas, while leaving many stranded and in need of assistance. We must come together and collectively help rebuild the aspects of our nations lives that were damaged or lost. Any donation that you can spare, no matter how large or small, is greatly appreciated. We will come out of this stronger than ever.

At the same time we are preparing for Hurricane Irma which is expected to make landfall on the US mainland, but forecasts show it could turn toward Florida over the weekend. Currently at 185 mph winds: It’s a Category 5, the highest possible on the hurricane scale. It packs winds of 185 mph, making it one of the most powerful Atlantic storms ever recorded.

RCOBEC Foundation is raising funds for relief efforts to help those in need after Hurricane Harvey and those that may need after Hurricane Irma. Your donation is greatly appreciated.

Is my donation tax deductible?

The RCOBEC Foundation is a federally tax-exempt 501(c)(3) public charity. The RCOBEC Foundation’s EIN is: 81-4203477. Because your donation was made as a gift without the return of any goods or services, your donation may be tax deductible.

What will the money be used for?

Given the massive rebuilding work ahead, we expect that the money will be deployed to support the longer term work of recovery AND rebuilding, in addition to immediate relief efforts. Together we are committed to stabilizing families and the fund will support community partners in four initial focus areas – health and housing; schools and child care; workforce and transportation; and capital for rebuilding small businesses.

All of your dollars will go 100 percent to relief, recovery, and rebuild efforts.
