Disaster Relief and Resiliency Fund


Global Impact’s disaster relief fund addresses the ongoing humanitarian needs of those suffering after a natural or man-made disaster strikes. The fund, which enables individuals and corporations the opportunity to make an impact year round, provides additional revenue to vetted charities with the most effective and efficient programs for long-standing disaster response.

Through our online giving tool, corporate partners and individual donors can contribute to the fund at any time. In return, they receive ongoing updates on the impact of their contributions, ensuring that the world’s most vulnerable people receive economic, social and health assistance long after the disaster fades from the headlines. The fund is used to treat the injured and provide food, medical supplies, safe shelter, clean water and other support to those in need.


Past Disaster Relief Funds


Typhoon Haiyan

In November 2013, Typhoon Haiyan hit Southeast Asia, particularly the Philippines, destroying about 1 million homes, displacing 4 million people and leaving more than 7,300 dead and missing. In response to the deadly typhoon, Global Impact established the Typhoon Haiyan Relief Fund to address the Philippines’ critical humanitarian needs.

Japan Tsunami

In response to the 9.0 magnitude earthquake and subsequent tsunami that struck Japan's northern coastline in March 2011, Global Impact established the Japan Relief Fund to address Japan's critical humanitarian needs. 

Haiti Earthquake 

In response to the 7.0 magnitude earthquake that struck just west of Haiti’s capital, Port-au-Prince, Global Impact established the Haiti Earthquake Relief Fund to support the immediate relief effort and meet the long-term needs of the Haitian people. 



The Partnership for Lebanon Fund was launched by U.S. business leaders in October 2006 to provide critically needed resources to assist the reconstruction efforts after the 2006 conflict in Lebanon. Additionally, the fund was established to help build a better future for the Lebanese people. 

Central American and Mexico Hurricane 

The Central American and Mexico Hurricane Relief Fund was established in April 2006 as a private-sector-led and White House-supported partnership to encourage private donations for post-hurricane reconstruction efforts in Central America and Southern Mexico. Specifically, the fund supported education initiatives for displaced children, the reconstruction efforts for major transportation infrastructure and the empowerment of entrepreneurs to start and expand their own businesses.
