When disaster strikes, there is an arc to charitable giving. We give immediately because we want to respond quickly. But our attention, and our giving, is quickly focused elsewhere. However, the ongoing needs of the affected community are frequently unmet and even increase with time.
You can change that.
By donating to this fund, you can give immediately, when the disaster hits your heart as well as your news feed. But your donation will go further to meet the demands of the impacted community over time. Through strategic disaster giving, you will help communities recover now and rebuild in the months and years to follow.
How and Who Your Donation Will Help:
All donations to the America's Charities Disaster Recovery Fund are allocated evenly between a select group of America's Charities' vetted nonprofit members: Feeding America, Feed the Children, and PetSmart Charities. Each of these organizations is dedicated to providing emergency relief to address a variety of disaster recovery needs, including:
- Food, water, basic necessities, and personal hygiene products
- Pets requiring medical attention, food, and shelter during a disaster and throughout the recovery period
- Supplies and support to help with long-term recovery, clean up, and community rebuilding efforts
After America's Charities disperses donations from this fund to these three nonprofits, we will post a news story update on our website and send you an email summarizing how your donation has advanced the recovery process of the impacted communities. 95 cents of every dollar you donate will be allocated evenly between Feeding America, Feed the Children, and PetSmart Charities. Five cents will go to America’s Charities for funds management and processing, donor stewardship including tax receipting, donor acknowledgments, and providing impact reports.
What are you waiting for? Give today and start making an immediate AND long-term impact.

- Purchases for necessary immediate sheltering needs for up to 30 days (gas/lodging, kennels, crates, carriers, food, waste management, bowls, leads/leashes)
- Medical expenses to provide required and/or necessary vaccinations and immediate medical care for impacted pets
Disaster relief has been part of Feed the Children's mission since the beginning. After a disaster strikes, Feed the Children works with its network of community partners to deliver immediate aid, including drinking water, hygiene items and shelf-stable food to affected communities. Learn more.
