Gov. Scott Activates Hurricane Relief Donation Fund

Gov. Rick Scott activated the Florida Disaster Fund Friday to support local individuals, families and entire communities impacted by Hurricane Irma.

“We expect that Hurricane Irma will have a major impact on our state and we must use every available resource to meet the needs of our families and communities," said Gov. Scott. "I encourage all Floridians to look out for one another and work together to stay safe before and after the storm.”

The Florida Disaster Fund is the state's private fund, established to assist Florida’s communities as they respond to and recover during times of emergency or disaster. 

The fund is administered by the Volunteer Florida Foundation.

To make a contribution, please visit, or you can text DISASTER to 20222 to make a one-time donation of $10.
