With the extraordinarily large and intense Hurricane Irma drawing closer to South Florida, the Miami headquarters of the Funders’ Network are currently closed.

Our staff has been working diligently this week to safely prepare our offices, as well as their homes, pets and families, in advance of the storm.

If you need immediate assistance, please contact Director of Programs Ann Fowler Wallace, who is based in Boston, at 617-524-9239/ ann@www.fundersnetwork.org.

We are closely monitoring the storm, and will reopen our Miami offices as soon as conditions safely permit.

Our thoughts are with those in the storm’s path, especially those in our South Florida community who are among the most vulnerable.

The Miami Foundation has established a Hurricane Relief Fund to assist in recovery efforts, and has compiled a resource of local and national organizations that will be on the ground helping families, communities and businesses rebuild and recover.

For additional resources on philanthropy’s role in disaster recovery, including the ongoing recovery of areas recently affected by Hurricane Harvey, please visit the Center for Disaster Philanthropy’s website. CDP has also established a Hurricane Irma Recovery Fund to focus on medium to long-term recovery efforts.

On behalf of all of us at TFN, we wish anyone who may be impacted by Irma safety and security in the coming days.
