Hurricane Ian Relief Efforts

United Way of Florida Disaster Recovery Fund

Contributions to the UWOF Disaster Fund will be directed to Florida communities most impacted by a disaster of any kind.  Currently, we are responding to the needs created by Hurricane Ian.  One donation can be made to benefit multiple communities or directed to a specific need or location/county.  To direct your gift to a specific location/county, be sure to note that in the "Note for the Donor Scroll" section of the linked donation page.  Make your gift by using a credit card and clicking the red "Make a Donation" or by sending a check to the address below.  Again, specific requests can be made by including the information in the memo line.

To make a contribution directly to the local United Way in a specific community, please see the list below with links.

Your contribution is greatly appreciated and will make a real and tangible difference to the recovery of our Florida communities. 

Thank you.
