Community Foundation Accepting Donations for Two Storm Relief and Recovery Funds

DANVILLE, VA –The Community Foundation of the Dan River Region is currently accepting donations for two emergency funds to help our community in relief and recovery efforts for the recent storms and tornado.

First, our Agency Emergency Fund is available when:

  • The request is time-sensitive in nature and could not have been predicted or reasonably planned for and a response for the emergency is needed in 45 days or less.
  • The request is to support a short-term urgent funding need created by an unforeseen event that has or will significantly interrupt essential services.

Second, our Disaster Relief Fund was opened to accept and strategically disburse local, regional and national funding on behalf of local disaster response and relief efforts.  The Community Foundation will work through local nonprofit agencies to provide grants to agencies and possibly individuals as needed to assist with disaster response and relief expenses not covered by other sources.

Donations to support the local response and relief efforts can be made online at or mailed to The Community Foundation at 541 Loyal Street, Danville, VA  24541. Please designate any donations to either the Agency Emergency Fund or the Disaster Relief Fund at The Community Foundation.

Please note that any gifts to either of these funds may be used for other emergencies if funds are not needed for the recent storm.

For more information, contact The Community Foundation at 434-793-0884.
