When catastrophe strikes, TIAA Charitable helps you navigate charities responding to a disaster and simplifies your giving and support. You can give to first-responder charities and relief organizations. Or for more strategic, ongoing support give to reconstruction efforts and even disaster prevention.
When to Give for Disaster Relief
Disaster relief is an on-going effort. The enthusiastic support that immediately follows the onset of a disaster tends to taper off when it is no longer front page news. The reality is that it takes years of aid and reconstruction to get a disaster area back on its feet. Immediate, emergency assistance is, of course, vital; however, long-term assistance can at times be a more strategic way of giving and ultimately make a bigger difference.
