We are committed to a stable, productive, and self-sufficient Puerto Rico, where resilient structures and equitable policies will protect against a repeat of the devastating effects of last year'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 raising $5 million since September 2017, to finance immediate impact and long-term solutions for the most vulnerable communities in Puerto Rico.
All donations to this fund are 100% tax deductible.
Hurricane María is Puerto Rico’s worst natural disaster in over a century, “the fifth strongest hurricane to hit the United States” (NASA).
Together with hurricane Irma, which struck three weeks earlier, Puerto Rico’s infrastructure was thoroughly devastated: 100% of the power grid was taken offline, and 80% of the population was cut off from clean water service. Six months later, some 25,000 families remain without power, the island's fragile infrastructure periodically stumbles, and anxiety is high as the 2018 hurricane season fast approaches.
We are an independent, non-partisan, non-profit organization founded in San Juan, Puerto Rico in 2012, that is committed to Puerto Rico’s renewal.
We believe that Puerto Ricans can build a global model of community-driven success. Please help us #PowerUpPR.
