Truist Foundation Donates $1MM for Hurricane Relief in Florida

The Truist Foundation is donating $1 million to support relief and recovery efforts for communities impacted by Hurricane Ian in Florida.

The foundation will provide three Florida regions with $200,000 each to support nonprofits focused on disaster relief efforts. Additionally, the foundation will grant $400,000 to the Center for Disaster Philanthropy‘s (CDP) Atlantic Hurricane Season Recovery Fund for Hurricane Ian. The CDP focuses on meeting medium- and long-term needs, such as rebuilding homes and livelihoods, mental health services and other challenges identified by communities that arise as recovery efforts progress.

“Our hearts are with our teammates, clients and communities impacted by the devastation of Hurricane Ian and those who remain in the path of this storm,” Bill Rogers, chairman and CEO of Truist, said. “The importance of our purpose to inspire and build better lives and communities has never been more clear, and we’re committed to helping those in need. We stand ready to help our communities recover and rebuild.”

Earlier this year, the Truist Foundation donated $1 million to the American Red Cross Annual Disaster Giving Program, which is designed to deploy assistance quickly to communities impacted by events such as Hurricane Ian.
