GlobalGiving (Mexico Earthquake Relief Fund)

All donations to this fund will support recovery and relief efforts for these two disasters in Mexico. Initially, the fund will help any first responders meet survivors’ immediate needs for food, fuel, clean water, hygiene products, medical care and shelter. Once initial relief work is complete, this fund will transition to support longer-term recovery efforts run by local, vetted organizations responding to this disaster. GlobalGiving believes that organizations that are deeply-rooted in local communities are in the best position to provide long-term support for survivors of natural disasters like these. By funding the relief efforts of local organizations, donations to this fund have the potential to build stronger response capacity so that these organizations are better equipped to face future challenges. GlobalGiving will post reports about how funds have been used and will email these reports to donors. Learn more at
