GE Foundation announces $4 million for additional Hurricane Sandy relief
December 14, 2012
To further support Hurricane Sandy relief efforts, the GE Foundation recently gave another $4 million to the Robin Hood Foundation
, which has been working fastidiously in the tri-state area (New Jersey, New York and Connecticut) to address both immediate and long-term needs of those impacted by the storm.
"Since our initial $1.25 million donation in the days following Hurricane Sandy, we have been staying in touch with national and local nonprofit organizations to understand where GE might be able to do more," said president of the GE Foundation Bob Corcoran.
With this additional funding, the GE Foundation is helping The Robin Hood Foundation cover costs for mental health needs, medical attention and more permanent housing options for those who were displaced by the storm. Since Sandy hit, Robin Hood has provided more than $14.7 million in grants to 140 organizations that are working across recovery efforts.
Organizations that are providing funds for multiple nonprofit programs might find it easier to manage their large-scale efforts with fundraising management
programs that can account for funds as they are disbursed to recipients.
