Disaster Recovery Fund

The Disaster Recovery Fund, coordinated by the Community Foundation of Greater Des Moines, was created in partnership with disaster response and philanthropic organizations in Greater Des Moines to develop a collective strategy for charitable giving during times of disaster. As Greater Des Moines and its citizens are facing the effects of COVID-19, the fund is moving resources to where they are most needed and to adapt to evolving needs. Mid-Iowa Health Foundation was one of the initial investors in the fund and provides leadership on the decision-making committee.
