Hurricane maria

We are committed to the development of resilient structures and equitable policies that will protect against a repeat of the devastating effects of 2017's historic hurricanes.


This initiative and fund, formally known as The María: Puerto Rico Real-Time Recovery Fund, has been organized in partnership with the Foundation for Puerto Rico, a 501(c)(3) corporation providing fiscal sponsorship of the fund.

This fund has been active since September 2017, raising funds to finance immediate impact and long-term solutions for the most vulnerable communities in Puerto Rico.

Donations to this fund are tax deductible.

Hurricane María was the second deadliest storm in U.S history, causing  2,975 deaths and causing $90 billion in damage on the island. 

Together with hurricane Irma, which struck three weeks earlier, Puerto Rico’s infrastructure was thoroughly devastated:

  • 100% of the power grid was taken offline, with power finally being restored to 100% of the population 10 months later

  • 80% of the population was cut off from clean water service

  • 80% of all crops were destroyed
